When fall rolls around, getting dressed in the morning can be a bit tricky. Although temperatures have dropped, it’s not quite cold enough to dig the shearling coats out, and there are just some days when we feel like wearing something a bit edgier than a trench coat. Enter: the leather jacket. Thick enough to keep us warm on chilly days, it’ll go with all of your wardrobe essentials — from comfortable jeans to pretty dresses — and you’ll be able to style it in so many ways that you won’t even have time to get bored of it.
If you’ve always thought that a leather jacket wasn’t for you, now’s the time to reconsider. The staple is perfect to layer on a breezy night or in a chilly office, and it was practically made for covering your simple white tees. You can even balance it on your shoulders to add an effortless element of surprise to your look. While these little moves may feel typical or ordinary, take a tip from the women below to employ even more cool, unexpected twists.
