Finish an All-Black Outfit with a Colored Leather Jacket
Make a colored jacket the hero of your look by pairing it with an all-black ensemble. Channel your inner Sandra Dee in black denim with a black bodysuit and moto booties. Finish with a colored leather jacket and a black quilted handbag. Headed out for the evening? Partner a colored leather jacket with a classic LBD and heels.
Partner a Leather Jacket with a Textured Dress
Play with texture and style a leather jacket with a knit dress or a glam velvet style (great for weddings and holiday parties!). If it’s cold out, add black tights under your dress to help keep you cozy. Finish the look with Mary Janes or ballet flats and pearl stud earrings.
Pair Leggings and an Oversized Sweater with a Leather Jacket
Perfect for snuggle season; couple leggings (or sleek joggers) with an oversized cowl neck sweater. Layer on a leather jacket, and let the cowl neck rest over the collar of the jacket. Complete the look with leather loafers and a statement cuff bracelet.
Couple a Leather Jacket with a Pencil Skirt + Blouse
Put your leather jacket to work! Wear it with a pencil skirt and a blouse or Oxford button-up shirt for an office-friendly ensemble. Boss up the look with stilettos or loafers, and layer on a printed scarf if it’s cold.
Layer a Leather Jacket Over a White Top and Jeans
A leather jacket over a basic white tee and jeans is an enduring ensemble that’s always in style. Continue the casual conviction and finish with fashion sneakers or printed flats. When you’re feeling fancy, swap the tee for a button-up and add a pendant necklace or statement hoops.
