Stand by as I reveal some of my favourite and most iconic leather jackets one must invest in. I’ve segregated the male and female categories to ensure I could be of help to all of you. So, let’s get into it.
Listing down my picks for the best men’s leather jackets
THE DOUBLE-BREASTED JACKET
Nothing else announces super cool than Celine. This double-breasted designed jacket is the ultimate win to look impeccable. Style it along with a black shirt and striped tie, in case you want to make it formal and you’ll be looking like a post-punk artist in no time.
THE SIGNATURE LEATHER JACKET
Coach is always a brand that comes to my mind when I talk about leather. With this signature leather jacket, the devil is in the details. I’m referring to those brilliant brown pockets and collar trim, around which there are stamps of embossed logos. It’s an ideal choice if you’re into subtle statements.
THE CLASSIC TRENCH COAT IN LAMBSKIN
YSL has always been an absolute favourite brand. All their leather products, be it bags, shoes, jackets are of supreme quality. Totally worth the splurge. One of them is the stunning double-breasted trench coat having tabs on shoulders along with two fastener hooks on the collar and a storm patch on the back, coming with a belted waist and straps at wrists. Style it with a dark blue suit or nice black pants and a white sweater. This will be your go-to leather trench. Mark it!
Moving on to my top picks for the best women’s leather jackets
FUR COLLAR LEATHER JACKET
Philip Plein is known for his design aesthetics and this leather jacket, in particular, is a superb design. The fur spread collared leather jacket, having an off-center front zip fastening, long sleeves, zipped cuffs, a peplum hem and belt loops, is impressive in all ways. Style this jacket with your dresses or a well-fitted trouser, turtleneck wool top along with a pair of stilettos and you are good to go.
WRAP BURGUNDY LEATHER JACKET
The Isabel Marant Burgundy is a colour that I absolutely love and own a lot of it. Like literally, a lot of it! This wrap style leather jacket is so unique with its design element. The material is extremely soft and comfortable to wear. Style it with beige pants to make the jacket stand out or, try out a complete off-white dress along with it. Trust me, you’re definitely going to be getting dozens of compliments.
HOODED LEATHER JACKET
The gold-tone beige sheepskin and silk-blend hooded Brunello Cucinelli leather jacket features a front zip fastening, long sleeves, zipped side pockets, a short length, a metallic sheen, and an elasticated hem and cuffs. This leather jacket is more of a casual kind and I would definitely style it with a nice light grey woolen dress on a lazy day where I don’t feel like dressing up too much and pair it with a nice pair of sneakers to go with it.
This list of classy, rough, and refined leather jackets would surely make you wanna shop one. So if you’re looking to buy a leather jacket, then the time is now. Go and grab the best there is!
