WHY YOU NEED A LEATHER JACKET

In 10 years of styling, I can confidently say that my go-to item for any client is always a leather jacket. They can be a little intimidating at first but there are so many ways to style them, that they fit into any wardrobe. If you have been too afraid to try a leather jacket, this post is for you! It’s not scary, it’s the ultimate add-on to every outfit to give it that extra wow factor. Here is 5 reasons why you need a leather jacket!

 

1. BUSINESS CASUAL

My favorite way to wear a leather jacket is over a white button down to add edge to your business attire. Try swapping out that cardigan or blazer for a sleek leather jacket. You’ll keep warm in that office AC, and be the office fashionista!

2. ADD FEMININE TOUCH

Leather jackets are notoriously considered edgy, and that’s why some of my clients have been hesitant to try them. I’m here to tell you, you can make a leather jacket more feminine! If you fall into this category, wear a skirt and feminine blouse with the jacket tossed over your shoulders to soften up the edgy look.

 

3. MIXING TEXTURES

One of the most fun parts of fashion is getting to play around and mix different textures. Everything has to balance and play off each other! I use this rule all the time. Try smooth leather with fun fringe and soft suede for a layered, dimension look.

 

4. DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS

Looking for something more out of the box than a classic moto jacket? Find a leather jacket with unexpected details like this one by Kobi Halperin for an effortlessly stylish look. Try lots of buckles and zippers, a different color leather, or rhinestone embellishments.

 

5. STYLE YOUR SLEEVES

One of my long-time hacks is to pull the sleeves of your top out from under the jacket for an extra style details. A simple pull of the sleeves adds a more layered look and it looks extra stylish.

 

I am obsessed with this Kobi Halperin embellished version, available here. It will also be available at the Kobi Halperin event I am co-hosting on October 17th. Email me for details and to RSVP.

TV jackets often become iconic symbols of characters or shows. Whether it’s Marty McFly’s red puffer jacket from “Back to the Future” or the stylish coats from “Peaky Blinders,” these jackets hold a special place in pop culture. They can become instant fashion statements and even inspire fashion trends. The way they’re designed and worn can speak volumes about the characters and the narrative of the show, making them not just clothing items but integral parts of storytelling.
