The end of the year is drawing closer, much faster than many of us would care to admit. If you’re anything like us, chances are that you’ve already been planning your wardrobe for the next one!
Don’t worry - here at Brando & McQueen we’ve got you covered. We’re getting ready for the new year too, so if you’re set to unleash the new you (or just a fresher version of the old you), our fantastic range of high-quality leather jackets are the best place to start looking.
Whether you just feel like treating yourself, or if you simply don’t want to be caught wearing last year’s fashions, take a look at 8 of the most stylish leather jackets that are set to dominate the catwalk in the new year.
Motorcycle Leather Jacket
Keep it cool. Old-school cool.
The leather motorcycle jacket has been around for decades; a true staple of high-street fashion, the catwalk and the countless Instagram celebrity pages alike.
If you want to appear classy, elegant and dangerous at the same time, a leather motorcycle jacket is the only way to go. Motorcycle jackets have been relevant since the 60’s and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, so yours will keep you looking sharp for years to come.
Don’t settle for less than the best, though - so many brands are already jumping on the wagon with lower quality leather jackets, so if you really want to stand out and make an impact, make sure you shop with Brando & McQueen.
Like the feeling of the wind blowing through your hair? The freedom that comes with speeding down rural, narrow roads on your trusty old Harley? Or maybe you just want to look like you do. We don’t judge.
Biker jackets are iconic: they’re rustique and sharp at the same time - classy, but with a bite. Embrace your inner mod with a luxury leather biker jacket, making a real impact as you tear through the town - keep your engine revving and Ray-Bans on for the full effect.
Red leather jacket
Maybe you want to be a bit different this year. Add a splash of colour to your wardrobe - why not pair it with some killer Doc Martens to show off your vibrant side?
The best thing about red leather jackets is that they’re fashionable and unique: not many people are brazen enough to give it a go, but when they do… well, the results speak for themselves.
Red leather jackets look good on everyone, match with nearly every outfit and really give the wearer a sense of confidence. Both casual and professional, it should be a must-have in everybody’s wardrobe.
White leather jacket
White leather? You must be joking…
Trust us on this one.
White leather is elegant, regal and rebellious at the same time. If you want to embrace your inner confidence, turn heads and look good, a white leather jacket really is the only way.
White leather fits nearly every style of jacket, but if you want the best results, our recommendation is either a biker jacket or a cafe racer - make sure to get the red stripes, too. They’ll make you go faster.
White leather is already catching on in the celebrity world; just take it from red carpet veterans Gigi Hadid and Cindy Crawford. Even Jim Carrey’s getting involved!
If you don’t want to be left in the dust, you NEED to get yourself in some white leather ASAP.
Punk leather jacket
Since the 70’s, punk has been making waves through music, fashion and just culture in general. Punk leather jackets look vintage and ballsy; perfect for when you need to show the world who’s really boss.
A punk leather jacket doesn’t need to be a specific style - it’s more about what you do with it. Sure, you could get yourself a studded jacket and call it done, but why not take it further?
Punk is all about individuality and making a statement. Get some patches, some safety pins and some badges. You know what? Get your nose pierced whilst you’re at it. You do you, boo.
Wearing a punk style leather jacket is one sure-fire way to get heads turning, and the best part is that any jacket can be punked up. The trick is simply to make it yours!
Cafe racer jacket
Maybe you prefer a classic, prestigious look reminiscent of 60’s diners, high-school greasers and beauty-school-dropouts. If this sounds more like your style, you can’t go wrong with a cafe racer leather jacket.
Cafe racers are iconic and timeless. Like all other kinds of leather jackets, they will never be out of touch; it doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, a cafe racer jacket will really give you an edge.
For a real classic look, you can pair your jacket with some skinny blue jeans and your favourite white sneakers.
Cropped leather jacket
Cropped leather jackets are typically aimed at women, but don’t let this stop you from living your dreams!
Cut off at the waistline, a jacket like this will fit well with any outfit, but for a sweet and charismatic look, we recommend pairing yours with any sundress or t-shirt.
A cropped leather jacket is definitely better in the summer months, as they won’t keep you as warm as longer jackets will.
Studded leather jacket
Gigi Hadid is an advocate of the studded leather jacket, and we don’t blame her. Stylish and rebellious, a studded jacket is one way to make a lasting impression.
Studded jackets might make you look intimidating, but believe us when we say that it’s in a good way. It doesn’t matter if you want to embrace your inner punk or just make yourself look confident and bold; a studded jacket is another example of a timeless fashion statement.
