Leather jacket weather is here, everyone. As we dust off our favorite leather jackets and put them back into our regular rotation, you may be wondering to yourself, "How do I style this again?" Luckily, leather jackets are versatile. They can be dressed up or down with dresses and skirts, but the go-to way to style this outerwear essential is with a great pair of jeans. While jeans and a leather jacket may sound like a "safe" outfit combination, think again. Here are 10 cool ways to style your jeans and leather jackets for any occasion.
Motorcycle Jacket and Black Jeans
Some outfits never go out of style, like a black motorcycle jacket and a pair of black jeans. You can fully lean into the look by dressing in head-to-toe black or break it up with a contrasting white button-down.
Burgundy Leather Jacket and Grey Jeans
If you’re bored with traditional black leather jackets, spice things up a bit with a red one. Pair it with gray skinny jeans to make your outfit pop in any weather.
Studded Leather Jacket and Distressed Skinny Jeans
Move from '70s vibes to '80s punk vibes with a studded leather jacket and distressed skinny jeans look. Pair with a graphic tee and combat boots to give the outfit grunge feel or spiky high heels for a femme fatale aesthetic.
Biker Jacket and Tie-Dye Jeans
Spice up any plain biker jacket with unique jeans, like this gorgeous tie-dye pair from Good American, though any jeans that stray outside the ordinary will work. Keep the rest of the outfit simple to make the jeans stand out.
Leather Jacket and Boyfriend Jeans
From a Sunday morning stroll to a coffee date with friends, sometimes all you need is the feel-good comfort of boyfriend jeans and a leather jacket. You can dress the look down with some sneakers and a t-shirt. Or, take things up a notch with a pair of mules and a blouse.
