A leather jacket is a timeless fashion statement and a key staple in any wardrobe. The leather jacket is a versatile, classic piece of clothing for men and women and can work with many outfits. Whether you are nipping out for a coffee, going to the office or on a night out with friends – the leather jacket works for all situations, as it can be dressed up or down…

If you are unsure to buy a black or brown leather jacket, think about what colour shoes you have. As a brown leather jacket with black shoes will clash. If you have more black shoes in your wardrobe, you may get more wear out of a black jacket! Of course, you can now buy a leather jacket in a whole range of colours. Opt for a colour to give a new edge to your outfit. One of our favourites is the ‘Toni Leather Biker Jacket In Red’.

Are you struggling to style your leather jacket? Read on to see what we think you should pair it with.

Women’s style tips

Go monochrome. A black leather jacket, with black trousers and a white top is a timeless look. Why not opt for a black and white striped top or dress for a different look.

Stay casual. Pair with boyfriend jeans, a jumper and trainers for a classic casual look.

Update your work outfit. Pair your leather jacket with a pencil skirt and blouse to update your office wardrobe.

Dress it up. Keep warm this autumn by pairing your dress with a leather jacket on your next evening out. Animal prints are in this season, so pair your black jacket with a leopard print dress.

Add accessories. Wear a scarf in matching tones to the colour of your leather jacket to pull your look together.


Men’s style tips


Biker look. The leather black biker jacket, with black jeans and a plain white T-shirt is an instant classic but casual look.

Stay smart. Pair your leather jacket with a shirt and tie and you are ready for the office and after work drinks.

Keep warm. Wear a hoodie or jumper underneath the leather jacket. The extra layer can substitute for a winter coat. Perhaps consider waterproofing your leather jacket to reduce the risk of damage in case you are caught in a wintery shower.

There are many different looks you can create with a leather jacket, whatever your style. Another bonus of a leather jacket is they easily transition through the seasons. Stay warm in the winter when paired with a long sleeve top, sweater and boots and brush off the slight breeze on those typical British summer evenings when paired with a sundress.
