No, I hate to break it to you: I don’t actually ride a motorcycle nor have I ever ridden one. I guess I just like to look like I’m one of those people. Motorcycle riders always seem to be comfortable with going against the grain and living life on the edge. And wearing a leather jacket always gives me that feeling; the feeling of being an independent person who is totally in control of her own life and won’t take any nonsense from anybody. A leather jacket always packs the punch that I’m looking for.
What I admire about this Fashionisto’s look is that while it is a pretty simple outfit, it speaks with a lot of power. The leather jacket is well cut and nicely fitted and has just the right zipper and stitching details. It is an understated piece yet it is bold and edgy. To complement the jacket while also keeping it as the highlight of the look, he keeps the outfit clean with some dark wash, slim fitting jeans as well as a plain white scoop neck T-shirt. I have to say, I love the casual and sporty touch that his adidas sneakers add to the outfit, and they are totally on-trend for this season. Lastly, a classic pair of sunglasses complete the cool and laid back vibe of the look.
The key to successfully achieving a “cool as a cucumber” look like this is to find the perfect leather jacket for you that you can trust and rely on to always have your back when you need that extra something to put some pep in your step. Find a jacket that complements your personality. If you’re more spunky, you can go for more zippers or some studding. If you’re classic, just keep the lines clean and details minimal. Also be careful when choosing the right fabric. You don’t necessarily have to buy real leather because that can get pricey, but choose something that looks worn-in, not something as shiny as a freshly washed car. And lastly and most importantly, find a jacket that fits you like a glove. The jacket should feel so comfortable that it feels like a second skin.
