Seven Outfits for Seven Days: Biker Jacket

by Masha

Black biker jackets make great layering pieces and will add an interesting, punk edge to whatever you wear them with. I’m going to show you seven different ways you can wear them, which are bound to give you some style inspiration.

Style a biker jacket


I’m starting off with a monochrome black look. I’m wearing high-rise skinny black jeans with ripped knees paired with a simple black t-shirt. I threw the leather jacket on top, which adds a hint of punk style to my look. To emphasize this punk style, I added a black belt with silver details, and to complete the look I’m wearing strappy black sandals which help to elongate my legs and help me look taller. If comfort is key for you, then this outfit would also look great with black boots.

If you think that monochrome black is too dark and boring for you, Tuesday’s outfit is here to help. I went for a bright splash of color with the high-waisted bright red pants. I’m wearing the same strappy heels and belt as the previous outfit, and the belt matches the silver details on the jacket nicely. This look definitely makes a statement.

I’m wearing a leopard print skirt that I’ve paired with a plain black t-shirt and ankle boots. I think that the leopard print and red are a winning combination. I also added a black fabric belt with a bow to make the look a little bit more feminine. This look is full of personality and character.

This next one is my workwear-chic outfit. I paired white pants with my favorite white chiffon blouse and white ankle boots with a kitten heel. A black belt breaks up the monochrome white and ties in really well with the black leather jacket.

Time for a relaxed casualwear look as it’s almost the weekend. To create this look, you need a white t-shirt that can be cropped or regular fit and some high-waisted straight paperbag pants in beige color. For shoes, I went for chunky white sneakers, and of course, don’t forget your black biker jacket, which completes the look while keeping you warm and stylish. Since the look features basic pieces, you can add a statement bag to make it more interesting. I’ve opted for a snakeskin print one.


This look is casual yet elevated at the same time. I’m wearing my white chiffon blouse, but instead of doing up the bow, I’ve left it hanging like a scarf. I love the combination of the light, airy chiffon blouse and the rough masculine leather. I went for jeans, since what can be better than blue jeans and a white shirt? For shoes, I opted for black ankle boots with a block heel for a stylish yet comfortable feel.


This combination of the flowy, floral, romantic dress in boho style with the rough biker jacket is a great one. I love the gentle lilac color of the dress. To complete the look, I added black ankle boots. You could also wear a biker jacket with a maxi dress for another great street-style look. 

And there we have our seven looks. I’ve shown you how you can wear black leather biker jackets in lots of different ways. Be sure not to get into a style rut and fall into the trap of always wearing it with the same thing. You can either try recreating some of the looks that I’ve put together, or have fun and experiment and see what stylish outfits you can create yourself.
