Inspired by my newest wardrobe addition, that was actually one of the coolest presents my fiancee (<3) could have given me for Spring – a Zara leather jacket – I did the most predictable and expected thing I could have done. I immediately started thinking of all the ways I want to wear the jacket this season, and since the weather outside is still pretty chilly, I have just the right amount of time to get ready to rock it !
The downside of all this, is that with every outfit I imagine and recreate in my mind, I realize how many more items I would need for my closet to feel complete (it will never feel complete, but let me hold on to that), that’s why my wish list, is getting bigger by day. A girl can dream !!!
Now let the fun part begin :
Leather Jacket + Maxi Dress
I’m thinking of a sheer, delicate maxi dress (like the one below), in a neutral tone (a bold color or a nice print would also work), paired with some black leather ankle boots (for an edgier approach) or wedge sandals (if only the weather was so warm in Spring). I love the black leather fringed clutch, so that works pretty fine. I would style the look with sunglasses, a statement ring and a few bangles (silver & black, or colorful).
Leather Jacket + Skinny Jeans + Boots
Yes, please ! This is not only the comfortable way to go, but it also looks chic and edgy ! You know, hard on the outside … For this type of look, I would pair the jacket with a simple, oversized tank or T-shirt, skinny jeans – grey looks great, black would fit, red would make a statement – and black boots. A cool black shoulder bag or backpack and some silver jewelry would complete the look.
Leather Jacket + Lace Shorts
Now, this I’m not sure I could pull off. Yet ! But I’m loving the look! I bet that attitude owns half of it :). The leather jacket would work great mixed with a printed t-shirt ( preferably in black or grey), a pair of lace shorts (white, beige, ivory, you name it) and a pair of white converse (I’d go with that instead of black ). An oversized bag, minimal jewelry and subtle curls would perfect the look.
Leather Jacket + Cropped Pants
Well, this caught my eye while I was browsing through ASOS a few days back. For a reason, I’m not totally sure which reason yet, I find this look to be cool and slightly masculine. In order to make this outfit a hit, I would team the jacket with a buttoned shirt rather than a t-shirt, light colored cropped pants – I like the ones in the example too – whilst the chunky leather ankle boots would also be an interesting addition. Again, minimal jewelry would set the tone for an overall minimalistic look.
This post is already way too long, and I had like tens of other ideas waiting to be set free, but, I will have to keep them for another post now. For a post focusing on a more colorful and girly way to wear the black leather jacket … for sure, think florals, pleated skirts, short and fun dresses.
Please feel free to share your ideal ways of wearing the leather jacket this Spring ! I would enjoy it a lot ! XO
