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.
