There's always that one article of clothing that is so versatile and universal, a closet cannot be complete without it: the leather jacket.
We always think of wearing a leather jacket with skinny jeans and biker boots but the truth is a leather jacket goes with everything. As versatile as a leather jacket may be, wearing wardrobe staples can be a little tough, such as how to wear a leather jacket with a dress. Below are a few ways in which I’ve styled my leather jacket.
How to Wear a Leather Jacket with a Dress
Wearing a dress in the middle of winter can be and sometimes painful. That doesn’t seem to stop me or many other New York women from wearing them. You should think of your leather jacket as the final piece of the puzzle. Depending on the style of dress you need to choose a leather jacket with a certain cut, style and finish as no two leather jackets are really the same (like the girl who wears it).
When it comes to finishes and cuts I prefer my leather jackets to be right at my hip. Yes, this can hide your shape, something not many want but it is the most versatile length. If you’re a shorter girl I suggest a leather jacket that ends at your waist to create an illusion of length and height.
Ankle boots are always a great decision and simple solution for go-to style. These booties from H&M are so much fun, I wear them everywhere. In the winter time adding fun tights creates visual contrast. In all honesty, I didn’t expect to leave my house on this particular day and didn’t seem to care it was an absolutely freezing Saturday in January.
Don’t forget to play up the accessories! I clearly seemed to be going for a silver circles look and managed just that with my Anarchy Street choker. I also almost never leave the house without sunglasses and I’m obsessed with ZeroUV and their amazing frames that actually protect your eyes from UV sunlight.
