How to Style Leather Jackets

As part of my FallWardrobeChallenge, I’m featuring a new look each week with different styles that feel so right during the Fall. I do a new look every day on Instagram with a video with tips and tricks on how to style the outfits. Each post is linked to LIKEtoKNOW.it with suggestions for your favorite pieces.

Leather Jackets are a staple in my wardrobe – whether they be authentic leather or faux, I have a variety of styles I’ve acquired over the years and they just come out with cute ones every season! Here are 5 looks I’ve put together with different style jackets.

DAY 1

Today I started off with an Ann Taylor button down jacket (almost blazer-like) that I have owned for at least 12 years – it’s a timeless piece. I styled it with a crisp white button down and layered the collar over the jacket collar – it’s seems obvious to do, but many times I think we’re in such a hurry that we forget the little details. Add a pair of high rise super skinnies and a block heel black booties to tuck your jeans in, and you are ready for anything. I added my  @zodiacaa Goldie Leo  pendant and some tortoise shell hoops to add a subtle statement.

I will be styling both real and faux leather and am posting suggestions for both on my LIKEtoKNOW.it posts. There are a lot of great sales going on right now, so take a screenshot and open the app to see what’s going for great prices.

DAY 2

Day 2 of Leather Jackets Week – a lil’ bit country, a lil’ bit rock ‘n roll 

I’m a HUGE Chris Stapleton fan so when I saw this tee at Target I knew I had to have it. So I styled it with my brown moto jacket and a pair of Levi’s Wedgie straight jeans. How could I not add my Frye Taylor Western booties?!?!

I’ve linked products and suggestions in today’s LIKEtoKNOW.it post so grab a screenshot and check out all the deals for faux leather jackets!

DAY 3

Today’s jacket is a lighter color than most would think of when purchasing a leather jacket. The color is so rich and smooth – like looking into a cup of Café au lait.

It’s also very versatile – the natural palette can range from jeans and tee to (now close your eyes to picture this) a pair of chocolate suede pants and cream silk top (ugh. Now I want it all!). And the buttery smooth texture of a natural jacket plays so well with a myriad of textiles.

I’ve styled this with a heavily texturized lace and flare Jeans – an all day kind of outfit that can go to coffee and later for a drink.

I’ve added suggestions to create your own natural leather look in a range of prices in my LIKEtoKNOW.it post.

DAY 4

Textures with Tulle

I was so excited for today’s look. I had it in my head all week and was so ready to finally get dressed in it. 

I love this Free People moto jacket – which has a detachable hood (i have it linked in my LIKEtoKNOW.it post with significant discounts with the code SALE). I wear this everywhere with everything – it is signature Jen  So I thought I would dress it up in this fun retro look with a tulle skirt (also linked in the post – and at an amazing price) with black pumps and this super fun red belt with pearls and diamonds all over the large buckle. I finished it off with some oversized hoop earrings and silver and black bangles.

DAY 5

THE leather jacket of all leather jackets

A few years back I grew restless for a motorcycle jacket. Not the stylized version of one – but the real thing. So I searched far and wide for the right one for me. And when I found it, it was like I’d never known the joy ever before! The weight was glorious. The texture – supreme. And the hardware 

Today I styled it with a pair of ripped skinnies and knee high heeled boots (nothing like a good boost to the booty!) and a Classic Rolling Stones lips sweatshirt. Simple, classic, divine.

I’ve linked the updated version of my jacket on my LIKEtoKNOW.it post (and at a fantastic price!) along with the Target sweatshirt.
