How to Wear Leather Jackets for Women
We may be sad when summer comes to a close, but just think how many more options for clothing you have. For us, one of the best things about fall is the return of our most prized leather jackets. They are light enough they can be worn over as dress and heavy enough to keep us warm when a chill passes. Although some of us love leather jackets for their practicality, this is not the only reason. Few items of clothing in our wardrobe are cooler than a leather jacket.
At oneHOWTO, we look at how to wear leather jackets for women. We look at various leather jacket outfits for women which can be worn throughout different times of the year and we have almost every occasion covered, from the most casual to the most formal. These outfits also apply to faux-leather jackets.
Leather jacket with button shirt
If you are looking for a winning look for almost any occasion, a leather jacket over a buttoned shirt is it. Whether it's a solid-color, patterned or printed shirt, this gives you a chic and casual look without looking homely. The more formal the shirt, the more formal the occasion, but it is a particularly good rocker look for women who want to show their edge in all occasions. You can opt for biker-style leather jackets or belted leather jackets to further stylize your figure.
Leather jacket and printed t-shirts
If you are looking for a comfortable and informal look, the combination of a leather jacket and t-shirt is perfect for you. It is an aesthetic that reminds us of the 90s, especially if we combine it with mom-fit jeans or straight jeans and sneakers. It's perfect for the everyday and it allows us to show off our favorite bands, slogans, memes or whatever it is we want to say on a given day.
Leather jacket and dress
To give an original, unique and personal touch to a dress that tends to be too elegant or sophisticated, a leather jacket is the ideal accessory. Through this combination will give a carefree air to your look, juxtaposing the elegance of a form fitting dress with the baggy cred of a leather jacket for women. It works for any type of dress, whether it is short, long, midi or whatever, although a formal gown might take some doing.
This can be a great combination for a free spirit, so why not try making it part of a boho dress style for winter?
Leather jacket and jeans
Our next outfit with leather jackets for women is possibly the one you thought of first. Jeans are timeless and casual, but can also be used for more formal gatherings if you do it right. This is because they are so versatile. Part of the fun here is matching the type of jean with the type of leather jacket. You can go for a looser fit jean with a longer jacket, a cropped leather jacket with a slim jean or any combination you can think of. Great to wear with t-shirts, shirts, polo necks, turtlenecks or whatever you have in the closet.

Leather jacket and crop top
Crop tops are very fashionable and will continue to be a trend this fall. We do not want you to give up this type of garment, even if the temperature drops. A fresh and modern look on warmer days involves combining the leather jacket with a crop top and high-waisted pants or a pencil skirt. This look is ideal for the most daring, who want casual and carefree looks.
Embellished leather jacket
In addition to classic and colored leather jackets, we want to talk to you about embellished leather jackets. These are the perfect outfit option if you want a look that displays your own personality and character Whether embellished with studs, pins, paint or other creative designs, wearing an embellished leather jacket will help you create bolder, standout outfits.
In these cases, since the jacket will have a lot of prominence, you should wear it with simple accessories. This way the leather jacket itself is the center of attention of your look. If you want to enhance your own style and give freedom to your most rebellious side, this option is perfect for you.
Vintage leather jacket
Another type of leather jacket that is making a comeback this fall is the vintage or boxy leather jacket. It is a timeless option that never goes out of style and can enhance almost any type of look.
Vintage leather jackets tend to be looser, so tying them at the waist with a belt will add a special touch and add shape to your figure. You can combine vintage leather jackets for women with a skirt or short dress and high boot. This can give you a country style, achieving both a retro and striking look. If you like leather jackets, create this outfit from your closet.
Rocker leather jacket
Among the outfits to wear with leather jackets, we could not miss the ‘punk rock’ style which uses the leather jacket as its focal point. You can combine a leather biker jacket with other leather garments, such as skinny pants or mini skirts. As long as you want to have a little edge, the rocker is a safe bet to enjoy your black, red or other colored leather jackets.
The black of leather jackets goes with everything, but they can experience some wear and tear. Although they are a great alternative, faux-leather jackets can be particularly prone to deterioration. Take a look at how to clean a synthetic leather jacket to avoid this happening.
