Ageless Style: How to Wear a Leather Jacket

April 24th, 2009

Ageless Style
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.


No matter what your age, you can pull off the leather jacket look with style and grace.  Simply choose a leather jacket in a classic shape and pair it with equally sophisticated pieces.  Here’s how to get an ageless look with a leather jacket:

1.  Start with a drapey knit top with a classic cowl neckline and a pair of fresh white jeans.
2.  Add the leather jacket - try a bomber style (as shown) or a more sophisticated blazer style jacket.  Note how the warm brown of the jacket really brings out the freshness of the blue and white combination.
3.  Finish off the outfit with classic-with-a-twist accessories: a folk patterned scarf (that picks up the colors in the outfit), a slouchy zigzag print handbag, and a pair of metallic driving mocs.

    I would’ve had such trouble assembling an outfit around a cognac leather bomber … but dang, this is GORGEOUS. Makes me want to hunt down a cognac leather bomber of my very own.

    I have a black bomber, a white leather jean-style jacket, and a black leather car-coat and wear them all quite differently.

    This is so cute! I just got a gorgeous new leather jacket today and I’ll be pairing it with a scarf immediately! Thanks!

    I still love my wide leg denim jeans and black bomber leather jacket. Most of my weight is below the waist but every now and then I wear them anyway.

    Being 5′2″ I could be considered short because besides the wide leg jeans my tennis shoes are worn (had a knee replacement)
