3 Ways to Style a Black Leather Motorcycle Jacket


Is the black leather jacket a staple in your wardrobe?
Or is it one you’ve thought of buying but haven’t pulled the trigger on?
(I mean, they can be expensive!)
Or do you have a very expensive one you feel like you’re not getting enough wear out of?

Whether buying vegan leather or genuine, it can be a major investment piece. And for that reason, I want to make sure you are equipped to get the most wear out of your leather jacket. So in this fall lookbook, I’m showing you 3 new ways to wear your black leather jacket.

As you watch the lookbook video, think about how these looks can inspire an outfit in your own closet.

After the video, keep scrolling for outfit details and styling tips.

Psst!  Even if you don’t have a leather jacket, how can these looks inspire your style? Do you have a cropped jacket that’s a similar shape? (Say, a denim jacket, perhaps?) Mentally substitute the jacket you do have into these style equations.

The leather jacket I’m wearing in this video is over 6 years old. I’m looking at upgrading it to a slightly more refined version as it is more in line with who I am now, like this J. Crew version.
