It’s perfect for women as well as men and your most essential accessory while sporting this jacket is just an attitude! For women, it’s best to wear it with a floral dress, while for guys, it’s best to go with a collared shirt and some chinos.


A bomber is in trend this season, appearing with everything from florals to wools. A leather bomber is hard to go out of style. It’s best to go with some plain white top and bright pants for gals and keeping it casual with a pair of ripped jeans and clean white sneakers is the best for guys.

A great trend of the past with everyone from Ggigi Hadid to Karlie Kloss sporting it, shearling leather jackets features lambs-wool lining. The most significant version of shearling is the flight jacket, a staple of men’s wardrobes since decades. Pair it with boots and simple black tote for a classic look. But this jacket is super warm so, don’t layer with too many pieces underneath.


The 50s vibe and easily recognized by its buckle hardware, the biker leather jacket has made its entry again in the past few years. The best part is it can be easily styled with a white tee and a pair of blue jeans, and either boots or sneakers for men and with some charcoal tank, skinny jeans and black heels for women.

Choose the Right Length

Choosing the right length of the leather jacket is especially important for women. You’ll have to decide whether you want a full length jacket or a cropped one. If you are going to normally wear the jacket with pants and jeans, choose a length that will hit your waist. However, if you will be pairing it with dresses most of the times, a cropped length will look more flattering.

Hopefully these tips will help you choose just the right leather jacket for you. Happy shopping!
