I believe that every man should have at least one item in their wardrobe and that is, Leather!
Leather is an essential which can be worn any time of the year. Whether it’s in the freezing conditions of Winter or even to wear on your way to a meal in the evening. I appreciate that Leather as I find it highly comforting, stylish and adaptable to change in any weather condition.
I think a must-have Leather item is the jacket. A Leather Jacket makes any outfit improved and gives a cool edge to an ordinary outfit. I have owned around 5 Leather jackets, and so less because they are so long-lasting! I still own a Leather Jacket which I had bought 4 years ago, which I regularly wear to spruce up my look.
This Leather Jacket (back&front below) is available to purchase from the ‘www.asos.com’ website, where they have a collection of designer and high street price ranges. I specifically chose this jacket (ASOS Leather Bomber Jacket) as it defines how it can instantly create the effortless edge it aims to achieve. This is also a bomber jacket, so it will keep you dry in the rain, and won’t make you sweat like crazy on a summer evening. The price of this jacket is £110.00, which is a reasonable price as it is long lasting (if you take care of it). This is shown as worn in a casual look, a plain white tee or a graphic print top would also look good for an informal trip out. If you want to prep up the look, I would advise wearing a shirt and sweater combo (preferably a light shirt and a colourful sweater works better).
If you’re looking for a high designer label, ASOS also provide designer jackets. (Below) is another leather jacket, from the ‘Pepe Jeans’ designer. By the way, Leather does not limit you from wearing just the black kind. There are colours such as Brown, Tan, Maroon and Navy Blue Leathers which are just as cool.
If you would like some advice on how to style your leather jackets, whether it’s vintage, high street or designer, let me know. If both of these jackets are not your style, I encourage you to visit local high street stores or look online for a range of jackets in all sizes and shapes. A Leather Jacket can sophisticate, make casual or spruce up your clothing. I also encourage you to invest in a jacket which you can wear all year round and they attract much compliments.
If you already have a Leather jacket, I recommend matching leather gloves, Zara Man sell brilliant quality leather gloves with different styles, so I recommend that also. I guarantee that Leather is a timeless piece of fashion, which will never go out of style!
