Rough, tough and edgy– the leather jacket. Once you put it on you have this fearless rocker moment, this no-one-will-mess with-me-today-vibe and this I´m-going-to-rock-the-day-attitude. I am a huge believer of how clothes can effect your mood. When I´m wearing a feminine, flowing, flower dress for example I instantly get this girly kind of princess mood, having a bright smile on my face, lightly spinning through the streets with my arms spread out (ok, maybe the last thing is only happening in my head but you get the point!). Anyway, sometimes days aren´t that pink and my mood screams for something edgier and that´s when my leather jacket comes in handy. But that´s only one of so many reasons why my leather jacket can sometimes be a lifesaver. Here are some more:
The leather jacket is a great layering piece and therefor perfect for spring and fall. Wear a cardigan or a comfy knit sweater underneath, top it of with a long scarf and a beanie and you are good to prepared for the chillier days.
2. Kick it!
A leather jacket can give even the plainest outfit this special kick. Denim jeans, white tee, booties and your cool leather jacket. OMG, this is everything but plain.
There are a million..no..trillions of options to combine your leather jacket. You can wear it with plaid, stripes, your LBD (little black dress), a printed shirt, denim, lace, knit, sweaters and even over dresses. Eeeeendless options!
The leather jacket has been on vogue over decades and I have this feeling that it won´t change. The key is to update the items you wear it with. For now, I could definitely see me wearing it over an all denim look.
5. Any Age
Depending on fit, cut and color the leather jacket is for any age. While young people could focus on details like studs, fringe or different colors, older people could consider to wear a leather jacket in brown and beige shades with a nice fit.
Wearing a leather jacket when travelling has many benefits. First of all it´s pretty comfy, secondly you won´t feel too cold or too warm and thirdly you will look super stylish. My go-to airplane outfit includes my most comfortable skinny jeans, a fitting shirt, an easy-on and easy-off pair of cool sneakers, my leather jacket and a scarf that can double as a blanket. Voilá!
Give a feminine outfit an edge by combining your leather jacket with something ladylike like a lace dress for that unexpected wow-effect.
Isn´t the leather jacket the coolest invention ever? Hell yes it is! I hope this post has given you some inspiration for your next super stylish look incorporating the leather jacket. Have fun playing a little bit around with this awesome piece!
Lots of love,
