An inspirational post in collaboration with StyleWe picking up an evergreen piece as the leather jacket and the maxi skirt.
How To Style Leather Jackets with StyleWe
In the fashion world and in my world there a few statement pieces and one of them is surely the Leather Jacket. Everyone should have at least one leather jacket in its closet. Luckily for us, there are so many brands that use faux-leather and I am here to give you some ideas.
StyleWe* is a website that promotes new fashion designers and their unique pieces. I have decided to have a look in their online store for leather jackets and I ended up with two lovely ones. To give the jacket a girly look, I chose some maxi skirts that would look amazing with it. Also some StyleWe dresses, especially maxi dresses would be perfect for our outfit as well.
Let’s start talking about the two leather jackets: one is in the classic statement black and the other is in burgundy. I own a black one – thanks Primark! – and it is such a wearable item. You can style it with everything and it will give you that cool look in a second. The burgundy instead is a color that I am looking for every single year in a leather jacket and I cannot find it. I mean, I am pretty picky (read: A LOT!) and I wanted it of the right length (not too short as Zara’s) and of the right shade of red. This jacket from StyleWe is actually very close to my ideal one. The patches and especially the pins aren’t my thing but they are predominant this season, so it is up to you to go with the flow or not!
Then, the maxi dresses are always soooo elegant. Given that I am not elegant at all – I wish – I always need to wear them with some alternative jacket, either a jeans jacket or a leather jacket. Trying to be more rock than grunge for once, I feel like both these two maxi dresses, the lace one and the straight one, would look incredible with a black or coloured leather jacket on.
Same goes with the two maxi skirts. The plain black one screams ‘I want a leather jacket‘ while the other NEEDS it! I absolutely adore tulle skirts, but I adore styling them with tough pieces (I actually have a coming blog post on one that I am so proud of). So following this winter shoes trend of mixing a ballerina look with a rock one (hello Miu Miu ballet shoes!) I am giving you this last idea: a tulle skirt, maxi or midi to pop up with a leather jacket! How cool it would be?
Hope you enjoyed my small talk and suggestion on how to style leather jackets. Don’t forget to check StyleWe Facebook and their own Blog for more inspirational posts.
