What does a leather jacket say about you?
Everyone owns a leather jacket; high-flying stockbrokers, celebrities, models, bikers and even the average Joe.
Leather jackets are incredibly powerful pieces of fashion – they’re stylish, bold and make a statement. It’s no wonder that they’re so universally loved!
With such a range of leather jackets out there that just ooze personality, it’s important that you pick the right one to show off your character.
Let’s take a look at what your leather jacket says about you:
Biker Leather Jacket
A biker jacket is one of the most commonly seen types of leather coat; an iconic collar chased upwards by a silver zipper and a thin belt that sits at the wearer’s waist. It will make you appear bold, confident and edgy, whilst greatly complementing most outfits in your wardrobe!
Favoured by the likes of Kim K, Avril Lavigne and Indie rockers FIDLAR alike, a biker jacket just screams ATTITUDE. Show the world your rebellious side by busting out your trusty biker jacket – bonus points if it’s in a striking color!
For added impact, try pairing your jacket with a plain black tee and a weathered pair of Doc Martens or combat boots. Alternatively, a white t-shirt and some old Vans can give you a realistic 80’s indie look that might even put Morrissey to shame.
If you want a killer biker jacket that looks as badass as it does stylish, why not try this BLACK BAD HOMBRE BIKER?
Studded Leather Jacket
The epitome of punk-rock fashion: a studded leather battle jacket. Whether you’re an avid gig-goer or simply a Sid Vicious mega-fan, the intimidating metal studs on your leather jacket make an edgy and empowering fashion statement that you can use to your advantage.
Appear confident and cocky, and really drill home that you just don’t give a s**t. Join the ranks of rock-n-roller Gene Simmons or even American supermodel Gigi Hadid by inviting out your inner rebel.
Similar to a biker jacket, you should pair your studded leather with some worn Docs. For a real punk look, you don’t even need to wear a t-shirt! Don your skinny jeans, maybe put some platforms on and kick some ass.
Bomber Leather Jacket
If you prefer a more streamlined, elegant appearance, you might prefer the look of a bomber jacket, like this one. The pinnacle of fashion, a bomber jacket is a timeless fashion accessory that’s been relevant since the 70’s – and with good reason!
A bomber jacket is undoubtedly stylish – you’ll appear educated, confident, slim-line and trendy when you wear one. They’re athletic and sporty, as proven by Hollywood superstars Kendal Jenner and Justin Theroux.
Why not pair yours with some white sneakers and some blue or gray skinny jeans?
Flight Leather Jacket
For the pretty boys of the world. A flight jacket is a stylish, cozy leather jacket, synonymous with supermodels and private jets. If you want to look elegant, stylish, pretty and well-groomed, then a flight jacked is the way to go.
Extremely similar to bombers, flight jackets generally feature a padded woolly collar or interior, which makes them excessively comfortable. Traditionally, they were used to keep pilots warm at high altitudes – they’re a must-have for your winter wardrobe.
Pair your flight jacket with a cozy pair of dark Timberlands or winter boots to keep yourself snug through the colder months. Make sure your beard is trimmed and your hair is done!
Racer Leather Jacket
Thrill-seekers across the world are brought together by their passion for racer jackets. These stylishly aerodynamic coats feature a high collar and a thinning design, making them a modern-day staple of the catwalk.
If you want to show off your inner adrenaline-junkie just like Drew Barrymore does, a racer jacket could be the way to go.
For the most impact, drape your jacket over a body-fitting tee (or a crop top!), paired with your favourite shorts and some dark sneakers.
Fringed Leather Jacket
Bohemian fashion has always been on the fringe of society. Whilst it makes an undoubtable impact in every-day trends, bo-ho remains distinctly indie. If you choose to wear a fringed jacket, you will show yourself off as individual, creative and artistic.
Fringed jackets have been adored by countless indie stars throughout the ages. Inspired by the frilly jackets and gowns as loved by Stevie Nicks, fringed jackets are now most popular in alternative fashion – just ask the talented Taylor Momsen.
A fringed jacket can be added to any outfit to add a little creative touch. Our favourite is with some colorful Converse and a skater dress!
Leather blazers aren’t as common as they should be. They represent empowerment and strength; skill and superiority, framing the wearer as distinctly (and stylishly) boss-like.
Your blazer can really make you stand out, whether that’s in the office, at a party or even an awards ceremony! A classy leather blazer can be matched perfectly to a neutral sweater and some smart-casual shoes.
