The leather jacket: which to choose

A piece that is an investment and that doesn’t lose charm with the years is the leather jacket.

The biker model has made the history of cinema: do you remember the mysterious Marlon Brando in the movie The Wild One or the springy John Travolta in the Grease movie? Jacket made for motorcyclists and purely male, is worn by a woman for the first time in 1978, always in Grease movie by Olivia Newton John in the final scene.

It’s been a long time since then, but the biker jacket has remained an evergreen and is repeated every year by renowned designers such as Balmain, Saint Laurent, Gucci, Alexander McQueen only to remind few, but the list is infinite.

How to wear a leather jacket

A garment that can be worn sportily on trousers (the white t-shirt and jeans are a classic), but can also be worn with a skirt for a gritty outfit. In the post I love leather I had proposed a biker style jacket worn with midi skirt and plateau shoes, an aggressive look made more feminine from the Love bag by Les Petits Joueurs.

If you like a more feminine outfit you have to choose the most fitted at the waist models, with central hinge (usually the biker jacket has slightly offset hinge) or buttons.

What I propose you today is  black leather jacket embroidered with large yellow roses, fitted at the waist. I wear it on cropped wide pants, and wide long top. I like to wear this garment on the top because it tends to point out the waistline with its shape.

To give an even more feminine impression, as accessories I chose the clutch instead of the shoulder bag and big earrings.
