Two ways to style a leather jacket

Two ways to style a leather jacket

This will be the last outfit post till after Christmas as we are off to France this week to spend a quiet Christmas and New Year there with friends. So I thought I would feature how to style a leather jacket two ways.

I am wearing one of my favourite go-to outfits. I bought this jacket from MeandEm about four years ago. I waited for their sale and then pounced. It was pricey however I know that I will still be wearing it in ten years time. It looks black in the photo but is actually a dark navy. They currently have a similar one in black.

MeandEm currently has a sale on. Unfortunately, their leather jacket is not on the list however they have some excellent sweaters and tee shirts with up to 50% off.

I have teamed my jacket with a deep red polo neck sweater from Uniquo. I have two similar ones in black and grey. If a basic item really works in your wardrobe I believe in buying it in multiples. I read somewhere that it was a strategy that Jackie Kennedy used to keep her wardrobe chic and classic.

I believe in getting the most mileage out of my wardrobe as possible. One way is to adapt my clothes from day to evening. I have experimented here by teaming a black and silver camisole from JDWilliams with my Levi jeans and my leather jacket.

    I have a black leather jacket that i’m embarrassed to say I have not worn. Couldn’t figure out how to style it. I love it with the long scarf, turtleneck and heels. Thanks for the idea.

    Both outfits look great! The addition of red really boosts the wow factor and even those of us who can’t really wear red would probably get away with it as a scarf.

    Happy Christmas Josephine, as I’ve said before I love your leather jacket looks but then that’s my style so it’s probably narcissism!
