There is no item of clothing ‘cooler’ or more iconic than the leather jacket. Just looking at all those great old films from the 50’s such as ‘The Wild One’ is enough to make women weak at the knees and men turn green with envy. But, it was not only in the 50’s when leather jackets were cool; in fact, they have never gone out of style and are still a popular fashion choice today.
The Leather Look
Leather has a reputation for being worn by ‘bad’ boys and girls and biker types and, although it is certainly true that leather jackets are a popular choice with these people, the leather look has a much more widespread appeal.
Vintage leather jackets can add the coolness factor to any outfit. They are rustic and sexy when worn by either men or women and come in many styles, including biker jackets, dusters, bombers and even blazers. So, vintage leather jackets really can be used to create any look. Below are a few such looks:
This is the look most associated with leather jackets. It has its roots in the 50’s greaser culture but was later adopted by punks, Goths and Indie fans. This look is easily achieved by teaming a vintage leather jacket with a simple black T-shirt, blue or black jeans and a pair of worker boots for men, or a tight fitting top, skirt and heels for women.
This is a great look for younger women. The essence of this look is to mix the old with the new and make use of flowing, patterned fabrics. Match up vintage leather jackets with long, flowery, flowing maxi dresses and sandals for a cool, fancy-free look.
The Indie or hipster look is a popular one with cool young people today. It is the kind of look you will often see on University campuses or in trendy nightclubs. The key to this look is to be effortlessly cool and there is no easier way of achieving this than with a vintage leather jacket. Try mixing a leather jacket with coloured skinny jeans, a slogan or band T-shirt and a pair of converse shoes.
