I decided to update this post and share with you this year’s must-try leather jackets. I will show you my favorite fringed designs, studded styles, as well as elongated and puffy sleeve versions.
Like it or not, but all fashion experts say that a leather jacket is a smart investment. Why? These outerwear pieces can be used in almost all cases, they look cool with chunky shoes, as well as with trainers, ankle boots and heels. This year we see classic leather jackets, as well as glamour designs with fur sleeves.
A vintage leather jacket is one of my favorites, we see lots of trendsetters wearing these outerwear pieces on the streets. I highly recommend to give it a try if you do like retro style. If you are into glamour style, then how about trying on a leather jacket with fur sleeves? If you are more into wild west look, then you need a leather jacket with fringes, update it with cowboy boots or with a plaid shirt. If you do like functional clothes, then go for a long leather jacket, it will save you from winds and cold weather. How about keeping things art inspired? Go for embroidered leather jackets with florals. Love those floral sleeved leather toppers. If you are more into avant-garde style, then a leather jacket with oversized shoulders is what you need. A kind of 1980s nostalgia. If you do like a seventies style, then go for a metallic style leather jacket. It looks awesome! Studded leather jackets look edgy and sophisticated. Go for the ones with metallic or plastic studs. Classics never die, that’s why I recommend giving a try to conservative designs, that are a bit baggy, a somewhat boyfriend inspired.
