A good leather jacket can be your best fashion friend. Not only will quality leather last for years, but it will also turn out to be one of the most flexible items in your wardrobe. Donít be scared of slipping into a tailored leather jacket and experimenting with your look. Womenís leather jackets come a in variety of cuts, including biker and boyfriend styles, but for a leather jacket youíll be able to wear to a whole variety of places, a tailored one is your best bet.
Team your leather jacket with a flowery, flowing dress for that boho chic look beloved of stars like Kate Moss and Sienna Miller. This works so well because the structure and heaviness of the jacket contrasts alluringly with the light, floaty fabric of the dress.
Wear your hair tousled and free and pick some sassy boots for your feet and you have the perfect mixture of sassy and sweet. On warmer days, you can even make this look work with sandals, but only if you keep your legs bare and accessorise with a pair of statement sunglasses.
A tailored leather jacket is also a great choice for women who work in busy offices as it can be beautifully coordinated with a skirt or trouser suit. For this look, think of high heeled boots and hair swept back off your face but avoid wearing too much jewellery as the look is already very powerful.
When a chilled out jeans and t-shirt day rolls around you can throw your leather jacket over whatever youíre wearing. It will look especially lovely if youíre wearing three-quarter length jeans and a pair of ballet flats as you channel old Hollywood glamour. On the other hand, baggy jeans and a vintage band tee is a great way to let your hair down.
For a more daring but equally casual look, swap your jeans out for a pair of leggings and wear an oversized belt loosely around your hips. For your top half, either a tee or a tunic top will look great and a pair of Converse or some demure heels will set the outfit off nicely.
If you want to give your leather jacket a more casual feel, just push the sleeves up to your elbows and leave the zip or buttons undone. This looks even better if youíre wearing a large necklace or flowing neck scarf and gives you a great touch of seemingly effortless glamour. For the opposite effect, cinch longer tailored jackets at the waist using a belt and youíll have a more professional edge instantly.
When it comes to accessorising a leather jacket, there are few feistier choices than a pair of bright red lips, a wrist full of jangling bangles or a nice long pendant. The only thing to avoid is very small or fussy jewellery as it can look a little swamped and fiddly when youíre rocking a tailored jacket.
