There’s a reason why leather jackets are a part of almost every capsule wardrobe. You can opt for an investment piece (they’re worth it!) or there are tons of affordable options out there that won’t break the bank. They’re a staple that you’ll wear for years to come, and they’re so versatile! Seriously, they go with everything, especially in a neutral like black or tan. They’re also a great transition piece that can take you from season to season.
To prove our point, we’re sharing 3 of our favorite ways to style a leather jacket below! The best part? You probably have most of these pieces in your closet already! Let’s do this.

1) Jeans + Tee
A leather jacket can instantly dress up your daily jeans + tee uniform. Throw it on with dark jeans, a white tee, and sneakers and you’re ready to tackle the day. We love this look because it can take us from the office to happy hour with friends easily. If you have a more formal office dress code, swap the jeans for a slim black pant instead, and you’re good to go!

2) Leggings + Sneaks
This might be our favorite way to style a leather jacket. We like to be comfy, okay! We love this look for weekend errands or even a casual brunch. Slim sweatpants or black leggings and neutral sneakers keep the look appropriate outside the gym, and the leather jacket just makes it Fashion with a capital F. You’ll be the most chic shopper at Trader Joe’s – Trust us!

3) Slip Dress + Heels
This last outfit idea will take your leather jacket from day to night, just like that! We love a slip dress because it’s so easy to dress up and down, and a cropped leather jacket is the perfect compliment. A simple pair of heels and your favorite purse top it off! Date night outfit, anyone?
