There may be no garment that can compare with the versatility of a nice leather jacket. A leather jacket can be worn in the most casual of circumstances and can also be worn to some semi-formal events. You may be wondering what to wear with your leather jacket, but the options are so vast perhaps you should be wondering what not to wear with it.
Leather jackets come in all kinds of colors now but the most popular and the most timeless color is black. Here is what will look great with your black leather jacket:
Pants: If you typically go out for a night on the town in your semi-dress pants and a button down shirt, try jazzing it up with your leather jacket. Really any color goes. Dark colored pants look great with the black leather as do lighter colors. Try to stay with solid colors though as a pattern won’t look right. If all you have is a lighter colored leather jacket such as white leather then stick with darker colored pants.
Jeans: With jeans you can accomplish a couple of different looks. Wear darker colored jeans such as black with a darker colored t-shirt and top it off with your black leather jacket. This will have you come off looking like a biker or at the very least a rebel of some sort. If you wear your black leather jacket with a white t-shirt and a true pair of ‘blue’ jeans you can pass yourself off as a ‘greaser’ like in the movie Grease.
Skirts: Here’s one of the ladies. If you are wearing a cute white or any other light colored skirt that is frilly at the bottom you can go for the skater girl look by topping off the outfit with a black leather jacket and a wild hairdo. If you have a darker colored skirt then try to go with a different color of leather such as red or white. Just as with pants, you want to stay with a solid color. Skirts that are too busy in the design department will take away from the leather jacket and leave you looking awkward.
More leather: What looks better than a great looking back leather jacket? Pairing that black leather jacket with a dark colored t-shirt and some black leather pants. This will give you that ‘rocker’ look and if you have the build to pull off the look, then by all means go for it. A word of warning here, this look is one that is on the warmer side and you will sweat, so be prepared for that.
No shorts: Weather you are a guy or a girl don’t wear your leather jacket with shorts. It simply doesn’t look right and doing so will have people looking at you for all the wrong reasons.
A great leather jacket can enhance almost any outfit you can put together. Just stick to solid colors and leave the shorts behind and you too can sport your leather jacket in style.
