How to Wear.. a Leather Jacket

Lisha's look

How would you wear a leather jacket?

 

The ultimate item that any girl can own is the perfect leather jacket. The key to to find one that fits right, is the right thickness and has enough detail on it to make sure you are comfortable wearing it with everything. They go with everything, and can make a casual outfit instantly trendy and cool, and can dress down even the snazziest of dresses.

All three of us wear our leather jackets in different ways, and so we thought it would be fun to show you three distinct and unique ways to wear yours today! Modelling our three looks is Lisha from South Africa, we thought she looked great in all three looks !

Enjoy!

Sasha’s Look

“The woman is the most perfect doll that I have dressed with delight and admiration.”

As you have probably noticed from my previous posts, I really do love to dress up. So I took this opportunity to show how a well cut and suitably rock n roll leather jacket can dress down and make a dressy outfit have a cool, downtown vibe to it. Dresses and leather jackets are my favorite combo because I love feeling feminine yet cool and slightly more casual. The jacket which I chose for Lisha to model is a staple in my closet. I got it at Topshop two years ago, and it came with a detachable fur collar which I whip out whenever it gets too chilly. It’s quilted detailing is both chic and biker at the same time and the fit is perfect. Paired with a studded asymmetric dress (this hem line us the way forward – glam, sexy and flirty all in one) and some killer leopard boots, Lisha looks like the kind of girl you see on the street and notice.

Torpad’s Look

“Unique and different is the next generation of beautiful”

I am a die hard fan of leather jacket! It goes well with everything, seriously. If you have a malfunction outfit day, just throw in a leather jacket and you will look so much better. Lisha is one of those people who looks amazing with leather jacket on. I give her a long lace skirt and a white sheer American Apparel top to contrast the rock-and-roll feel of the jacket. Button it all the way up and sneak an edgy knee boots to mix up with the feminine vibe. To make this outfit stand out more, I love to mix some colorful accessory and in this case, it is an ink 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag. To reinforce how much I love to contrast different style, I give her a bold red lip and a side pony tail. Who say you can’t be sweet and sexy at the same time! The end result: Lisha is chic effortlessly cool.

Anahita’s Look

“Good girl gone bad”

Lisha has an elongated and androgynous silhouette. To contrast with her pale complexion and strengthen her traits, I decided to go for red top and red lipstick. When you have long and thin legs like Lisha, it’s best to adopt a flared skirt like this leather one from Zara, emphasizing the length of her legs while giving her a playful feel – also reinforced by the braided headband. Here, the leather jacket is used as a personality statement: “I am sexy AND confident!” and goes hand-in-hand with the leather skirt. Nothing works better than studded biker boots and a jumbo CHANEL bag to give a silhouette the perfect rock-chic look.

What to Wear.. to a Blind/First Date

Samira's look

It’s a date night! What do you see yourselves wearing?

 

Dating in New York sucks, in fact it doesn’t just suck. It’s the worst. We’ve all met guys in bars who turn out to be hideous and thus have had to resort to blind dates set up by friends or even making an OkCupid account. We’ve been there. And to add to the stress of the whole situation it’s always hard to know what to wear. Casual, dressy, girlie, edgy. We decided to pull together our favorite date looks for you! Samira from Finland was kind enough to model our looks for us! Happy Sunday and we hope one of them works out for you!

Sasha’s Look

“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

My number one rule for going out on dates is never to be too casual, you never know where the night is going to take you! My look for Samira is fun, girlie and a little bit edgy. An outfit than can progress from drinks at a wine bar to a dance party at the Blind Barbour. The over the knee boots and flirty dress are super sexy worn together and I edged it up with a soft and sleek fur gilet and the ultimate accessory any girl can own, a Balmain belt.

Torpad’s Look

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world”

Now this one is taking the most of my time to put together but first/blind date always does that to me anyway. Lately, I’m kinda into a masculine style and I hardly wear dress or skirt. So I give Samira a disco pants and a white flow-ey top that would look both casual and semi-hot together. I don’t really want to go over the top for the first time. The plaid blazer will tone down the sleekness of the look and give a little bit of a cool retro vibe, which I love to put here and there. I add the Alexander Wang bucket bag to give her little edge. Then throw in black Hermes heels (which is surprisingly comfy, you can dance all night with that!) and let her long wavy hair goes naturally messy to keep it simple, like “oh! I didn’t even put any effort into this look at all” kinda simple.

Anahita’s Look

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”

For a first date always remember not to look overdressed. Your style has to be simple yet polished, without looking like you’ve tried so hard to be hot. Samira is wearing skinny leather pants, giving her a sexy and feminine silhouette. Including some wedge sneakers and an oversized glitter top to the outfit breaks the sexiness brought by the leather pants and gives Samira an edgy feel. The studded headband adds a girly touch to the look and accessorizes perfectly Samira’s long poney-tail. The Balenciaga bag constitutes the ultimate rock & roll piece of the outfit, achieving the exquisite combination of femininity, edginess and sophistication.
