Styling leather jackets
It’s without a doubt that leather jackets are best in giving you a classic and cool look. Although the sheer amount of style can be daunting, it will be worth it if you create time and effort to find one that suits you best. Leather jackets are found in numerous variations but the most common are bomber and biker. In picking out the jacket, a good fit and simplicity are key.
In wearing, leather jackets are best when kept thin underneath. Therefore, simply paring it with a plain t-shirt and jeans will look great. If you want something less casual, dress shirts, a bow tie and Chelsea books will instantly look classically smart. Alternatively, iconic trainers like converse and vans are a perfect partner in crime for your leather jacket.
Picking the color
Brown is best liked by men after black. They both look very stylish when paired well with an outfit. Simply make a bold personal style statement by choosing a unique color for your jacket. However, be sure to take caution since color can go very wrong. Your leather jacket will always draw attention no matter what. However, no one wants to turn heads for the wrong reasons. You can either keep it simple or make it bold. Alternatively, add color to your black leather jacket by using a coral bow tie or skinny ties.
Biker or bomber
Either way, you will still rock it whether in an office or the street. Nevertheless, bomber jackets tend to look more official than the biker ones.
If you are considering the official look, your safest choice for an official look is a white dress shirt with a black tie, then throw in your black leather bomber jacket. It gives you a very classic look that isn't so stiff or too casual for a formal environment.
Varsity Style leather jackets
You can also get the guts to style up by settling for a varsity leather jacket. It’s a two-tone design, whereby your jacket is partly made of leather and another material such as cotton. They are a great way of upping your game from a less hoodie look. Since they are a baggier look, your best choice will be to pair it with slim or slightly baggy jeans and some trainers. When dropping this look, ensure to keep away from skinny jeans since they will make your lower abdomen look too thin to look good.
A well-fitting blazer is a perfect touch to any outfit, now throw in the fact that it’s in leather. It will always make the perfect fashion statement. Besides, you can never go wrong when paired with the perfect bottom wear. It’s not one of the most favorite pieces in the fashion industry, yet looks great when properly worn.
Leather pants on men can be tricky. You have to know what you are doing to pull them up. If you are bold enough to own a pair, black should be the color. Too tight pants and too much leather are the banes of stylishness. Simply keep it casual.
Remember to keep in mind that it's more than just the leather. You have to dress it up and maintain the less is more philosophy. Think of the leather item as the central figure and any other wear a complement to it.
