Think leather jackets are only for hard core biker chicks, well think again ladies because a multitudes of working women, busy moms and collegiate fashionistas are taking advantage of this edgy trend. Believe it or not leather jackets can be flirty, feminine and chic, as well as edgy and tough. Leather jackets work well with most fashion pieces including skinny jeans, leggings, skirts, shorts and even dresses. Below you’ll find some great ways to incorporate a leather jacket into your wardrobe this fall/winter.

With A Dress

A leather jacket with a floral print dress is a great way to channel the super trendy grunge look. You could opt to add leggings and boots for the full on 90’s effect or keep it understated with cute shoes and accessories. We just love the way the leather jacket toughens up the look of the dress without completely overpowering the flirty-ness of the outfit.

With Skinny Jeans

This is the easiest way to rock this trend; all you need are dark wash skinny jeans, a white tank top and a fitted black leather jacket.  This look is rocker chic, yet effortlessly executed, making it perfect for date night or even an outdoor concert in the fall or winter. If you want to dress up this look a little more think about adding a silver statement necklace or black, silver studded pumps.

With a Skirt

For the office try a cropped, colored leather jacket paired with a sexy, yet appropriate fitted pencil skirt. The leather jacket would be a great alternative to the traditional blazer and it gives a more powerful edge to your work ensemble. You could opt for a leather jacket that is tailored to look like a blazer, this would be a great way to refresh your plain old work suit.
