Whenever there is a talk about cozy yet stylish winter clothing, leather jackets are the first thing to cross anyone’s mind. They are not only warm enough to protect you from the harsh blows of weather but also make you look stylish at the same time. These jackets are not only a must-have in everyone’s wardrobe but are also very versatile when it comes to carrying them. However a little care is always required while styling any leather jacket, otherwise one might end up like Melania Trump who wore a jacket having I really don’t care printed on it. This caused a whole pile of problems for the first lady afterward.
Here are some of the tried and tested ways of rocking a leather jacket without putting in any effort.
KNOW ABOUT YOUR BODY TYPE AND BUY JACKETS ACCORDINGLY
A lot of us can relate to committing the sin of buying a leather jacket having some hype at the moment without thinking whether or not it will suit their body type and end up a fashion disaster. Make sure you know your body type and choose a jacket accordingly. Very lean and slim people usually cannot carry a biker’s jacket very well.
Similarly, fleece and bomber jackets are not suitable for someone with a chubby physique. There is no point in spending dollars on a Zara military jacket if it is not suitable for your body type. Embrace yourself the way you are but choose an outfit that will actually suit you.
MAKE SURE YOUR JACKET HAS A HIGH QUALITY LEATHER
Leather quality is something that should be the first thing you should look for in a good jacket. Always feel the leather and look at it closely. If it is not shiny in its glare and is not tough to touch and feels at the same time, the leather jacket is not worth spending money on at all. A leather jacket that is made up of a poor material is not only pathetic at keeping you warm but also gives a poor overall look no matter how gracefully you try to style it. It is better to invest in an expensive leather jacket which has a good finish for once rather than investing every year in rough and cheap jackets.
CHOOSE A GOOD COLOR NO MATTER WHAT
Color is probably one of the most underrated things people pay heed to when buying leather jackets. Most of the times people opt for a black or a brown jacket even looking goofy in them only because it is mainstream to do so. No one thinks how good a red, navy blue, or a Green jacket can look only if it is styled in a manner.
While black or brown jacket is a go-to option for every outfit, we advise you to have at least one bright colored leather jacket too which you can wear easily at dinners, parties, and concerts.
