With Fall right around the corner, these coats are the perfect layer to add over ensembles both casual and classy. Here are some combinations you might not have thought up, straight from a self-proclaimed leather jacket addict in the making. (Confession, I own 8.)
For those chilling, windy days of fall try adding a zip-up hooded sweatshirt under your leather jacket. Choose a casual jacket in distressed tan or dark gray and let the hood from your sweatshirt peek out. If it rains, you’ll stay dry and your leather will add some love to what could be a drab winter outfit.
Leather jackets aren’t only for motorcycle mavens; they’re also the perfect match for feminine sheer blouses. A simple camel jacket over a light top in peach or mint instantly gives a preppy top some lacking edge.
Plaid flannel shirts with leggings are must-haves for the dripping autumn days, so consider adding a leather jacket to spruce up last year’s apparel. Over-sized flannel shirts in red, green, or blue go great under jackets with a little embellishment (zippers, buckles, and spikes, oh my!)
The Plain White Tee:
A plain white t-shirt with boyfriend-style destroyed denim jeans offers an opportunity for leather jacket experimentation. Choose one with an off-center front zipper or a hood.
Leather jackets are ideal for nights out when lugging around a thick coat is less than practical. Pair yours with your short dress and heels for an ultra-rebellious night at the bars.
