One of the most preferred combinations by both younger and older ladies is a leather jacket and jeans. Besides the comfort it creates, the look is very suitable for different types of occasions. You can go for a classic version of blue jeans, the boyfriend type, or if you like your body enough, feel free to wear a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans that also pair well with a leather jacket. Choose a blouse in a neutral color to keep the look simple. As for the shoes – they can be a pair of comfortable sneakers, loafers or even high heel boots.

As with jeans, the leather jacket pairs well with classic regular fit trousers. The silhouette is elegant, fashionable and most importantly – age-appropriate. Try pairing high-waisted trousers in а color of your choice, a striped shirt tucked into them and a dark leather jacket that can just be draped over the shoulders. Choose a stylish bag and shoes to complete the look.

А dress for a feminine look

A leather jacket combined with a feminine garment like a dress looks harmonious and somewhat natural. When it comes to choosing a dress, you can stick to a monochrome model in a calm or pastel color that is not quite body-hugging, but looser. The length should be just below the knee or at knee level.

Try bolder combinations if that’s your style! A leather jacket looks great with an animal print dress, like leopard or snake print. It’s good to stick to looser cuts again. The black jacket does so to “balance” the look, toning down the too extravagant print and creating the feeling of a very stylish and modern look. It’s a good idea to choose shoes and accessories that also don’t “catch” the eye.

Leather jacket and skirts

You can also pair your leather jacket with a skirt. The best options are midi and maxi skirts, as they will look the most harmonious. A high waist is also preferable with a tucked in blouse in a neutral color and tastefully chosen accessories.
