The world is full of brilliant combinations—stars and stripes, peanut butter and chocolate and of course, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. While all of these stand amazing on their own, they somehow manage to take on a new level of flawlessness when stuck together, much like one of the hottest trends of the season.
Wool jackets are a great fall essential, and leather jackets are a timeless fashion statement. Mix the two styles together? The outcome is a hybrid jacket that isn’t too far from perfection. This savvy trend has been popping up left and right, and pays homage to the classic varsity jacket with leather sleeves and a wool bodice. It’s the perfect combination of fabrics to keep you cozy in the fall and early winter, while the mix of color and textures keeps any old outfit interesting.
I spotted this fearless Fashionisto taking on the trend, rocking a navy wool jacket armed with brown leather sleeves and a shearling collar. He paired the look with a knit, navy blue beanie, light beige pants and suede lace-up combat boots. The final ensemble is cool and casual—perfect for a chilly fall day of classes.
Hint: If you’re tired of the mundane, one-dimensional look, step up your jacket game and give the wool and leather combination a try. Similar styles can be found in a variety of different color combinations, like this gray bodice, black leather option. If the wool bodice just isn’t for you, many other options feature different textures like corduroy or denim instead. Find the combination that best suits you!
