5 Reasons You Need a Leather Jacket

If there was one thing we saw on repeat back at Paris Fashion Week, it was the leather jacket.

The coolest street strutters wore it impeccably in all shapes and forms – oversized, bombers, classic, aviator-inspired, fur collars, and shearling touches. There goes your evidence that it’s the ultimate cool outerwear piece. And now that we’re headed into warmer temps, it’ll make a great transitional piece when you’re in need of light layers for chilly mornings and evenings. As if you need more conviction that it’s a necessity, we’ve broken it down further. You really need it.

#1 They look good with everything.

No matter what kind of style you’re drawn to be it preppy, west-coast casual, boho, or downtown chic, a leather jacket looks good with everything. Not just styles but silhouettes (skirts, dresses, denim, et al) and in all contexts – you could be headed for the office, a date night, or even church and it’ll never fail you. Seriously, if there’s only one wardrobe staple you invest in, let it be the leather jacket.

#2 They’re seasonless.

Leather jackets know no seasons nor trends. When was the last time you saw one worn, but appeared out of place? Never.

#3 They last forever.

They’re super durable and if we must say, they wear even better with time.

#4 They look good on everyone.

No matter your body type, you’re bound to find one that looks good on you. Plus they’re so versatile, you can essentially get away with a looser fit or cropped version.

#5 They travel well.

Jet setting in style? Search no more, this will be your default. It’s soft, comfortable, but never cumbersome.
