How to Wear Popular Leather Jacket Styles

Leather jackets are one of the most timeless and versatile pieces for every woman to have in their closet. Why? They can be dressed up, down, and are effortlessly stylish for almost any occasion. Whether worn over a soft cashmere sweater or with a simple t-shirt and jeans, discover our favorite ways for women to style with 5 different leather jackets.

Leather Bomber Jacket

Style with a Warm Sweater & Black Jeans

Did you know bomber jackets are also known as aviator jackets? These relaxed fit pieces are popular from city streets to small-town backroads. Because they have a looser fit, leather bomber jackets are perfect to style over a chunky wool sweater and pair of black jeans. Complete this comfortable look with leather booties that match the color of your jacket.

Leather Moto Jacket

Style with a Tee & Skirt

Casual yet on-trend, leather moto jackets are sleek and edgy. Designed to fit snugly, but loose enough to be worn over your primary layer, moto jackets are a modern take on racing jackets. These jackets feature minimal detailing, so we recommend wearing them with a simple tee and long skirt or lightly distressed pair of denim. This is a great look for on-the-go moms—complete this style with an oversized leather tote bag to hold everything you’ll need for the day.

Oversized Leather Jacket

Style with a Shirt and Leggings

Whether you opt for your mom’s oversized leather jacket from the ‘80s or 90’s or a newer style, oversized styles are here to stay. The best part about these pieces? They’re easy to layer over everything! For a classic date night look, try wearing an oversized leather jacket over a jean skirt and shirt—or style it over a short dress. Need to run some quick errands? Wear this jacket style with an oversized hoodie or t-shirt and your favorite pair of leggings.

Scuba Leather Jacket

Style with an All Black Ensemble

Designed to imitate scuba diver’s fitted wetsuits, scuba leather jackets are the most form-fitting style. Visually similar to a moto jacket, these jackets feature less detailing and hardware. This polished leather jacket style looks stunning when worn over a little black dress for date night or with a black top and pants. Finish off your outfit with knee-high leather boots and a foldover clutch to carry your essentials.

Fur-Trimmed Leather Jacket

Style with Evening Wear or Winter Apparel

Whether in the mountains or skiing out in Colorado, a fur-trimmed leather jacket is a great style for cold climates. Generally, these jackets will feature fur along the cuffs of the sleeves, near the neck, or on the entire jacket. For a winter night out, style a fur-trimmed leather jacket over a cocktail dress with heels. If you’re wearing this piece for a sportier occasion, style it over a warm sweater, leggings, and winter boots.

No matter which leather jacket style is for you, make sure you properly care for any genuine leather product in your closet with the help from our Guide to Caring for Leather.
