3 ways to wear a leather jacket

A Leather Jacket

by Michelle Duguid

The leather jacket: of all the wardrobe must-haves, this is the cool kid on the block. Brought to the mainstream by Marlon Brando, the rest is history, with everyone from Kate Moss to Alexa Chung rocking theirs today. See how we’re styling ours this season.

Boardroom, Bar

For this look think of your leather jacket as a secret weapon, giving any ensemble a hint of cool without overpowering the look you’re trying to achieve.

For the perfect boardroom to bar look keep your main outfit simple. A high waisted skirt paired with a button up shirt is a great way to do all occasion dressing, giving you a simple and stylish foundation for the rest of your look.

Add a leather jacket to the mix and even the simplest of ensembles will be brought to life. Waisted styles are great to pair with trousers and skirts, and will flatter any figure.


Hot Tip:
Glam up with a statement bag



Stars in the Sky

This is a great mid season ensemble, no effort required. A longline tunic has been at the top of our wishlist for a while now and paired with super skinny jeans and ankle boots, you just can’t go wrong. Graphic prints are another headlining trend and this star printed tunic is a playful way to rock it your way.

The leather jacket is the real star of this look though, bringing an urban edge to this feminine ensemble.


Hot Tip:
Turn up your jeans, leaving a gap between the top of your boot, for extra style points.

Easy Comfort

A leather jacket is your number one layering companion. Layer yours with textured jumpers and lightweight cardigans – the leather works beautifully against these softer textures.

Get this look with tapered charcoal joggers and a simple tee. A leather jacket followed by a chunky sleeveless waistcoat will polish the look off.


Hot Tip:
Ponyskin slip-ons are a stylish companion for this laidback look
