How to Wear a Leather Jacket

how to wear a leather jacket

I went through a huge kick of buying and wearing leather jackets a few years ago to bring out my inner daredevil. There’s just something about wearing leather- it makes you feel fearless, much cooler, and like a totally different version of yourself! This leather jacket is one of my favorites- I bought it years ago and love the zipper details of it. I wanted to show you guys how to wear a leather jacket and feel confident!

In this look I wanted to take a normally edgier look and tone it down with some pops of color. I wore maroon socks with the leather boots to give it a softer feel, and the red bag also helped with that. If you want to make it truly rocker-esque, try a studded black bag! I am also loving my old Topshop jeans- I bought them when I was a bit thinner in shape and could never find jeans to fit my body. I have recently revisited them, and am obsessed!

Remember, layering is the best way to dress for these colder months. Here I paired a loose fitting knit with a tighter jacket to help give me some shape, and tucked in both corners to lift and show off my legs. Leather boots with heels always elongate your body, so you want to get the most out of it!
