As trends change or rotate every year, the Classic Leather Jacket outfit only gets better with time. The history of leather jackets goes back to the early 1900s during the First World War when German soldiers wore the bomber version (an aviator jacket) as an outwear layer of their military uniform. It slowly rose its popularity to street style when Harley Davidson showcased their first leather jacket, a shortened version of the aviator jacket. Soon many legends like Steve McQueen, The Beatless, The Ramones, and Tom Cruise (in Top Gun) made it popular and timeless.
Though it started as a Men’s biker jacket, women began to wear them on a wide scale thanks to rock and roll. Ever since, this all-weather jacket had no looking back. It became a versatile closet staple that can be easily dressed up or down.
The Classic Leather Jacket Outfit
Today’s outfit is a classic combination of wearing a leather jacket and skinny jeans. Honestly, it’s one of those borrowed-from-boys looks with the white shirt and blue denim. I added (of course!) a feminine vibe to it with red heels and crystal drops. This scarf from Topshop is absolutely gorgeous; it’s super soft and has a cashmere feel. The best part is it doesn’t shed and spoil your outfit with lint. I always look for such scarves as I own a lot of wool coats.
There are many ways you can wear the same look by switching accessories. Here are few
- For an elevated casual look, semi-tuck the shirt into boyfriend jeans, pair it with a slip on’s, and switch the earrings with studs. Check the similar look here.
- Layer a grey/brown sweater over the shirt for a warmer look, and replace heels with booties. Keep the rest of the outfit the same.
