Under The Influence – The Hottest Street Style of 2017

15th December 2017

A leather jacket is a style staple. The one piece you can pull out for any occasion. Whether your diary is rammed with Christmas parties – or maybe you’re more of a corner of the pub kinda girl or guy – you might be wondering how to wear leather jackets this season.

What to wear with leather jackets

Adding a leather jacket to your look this season is super easy and with warmer layers you’ll be ready for anything too. A knitted jumper under your favourite leather is warm but still stylish – throw in some oversized accessories and you won’t need any other jacket all winter. Or you can keep your hoodie going by wearing it under some strong leather.

We love seeing how other people are rocking our jacket range. Check out the below inspo from some of our favourite Instagram stars. These influencers know how to style leather jackets and make it look totally effortless.

How to style leather jackets

Stick to one strong layer under leather. Wear just one, relatively warm but simple piece underneath to avoid bulking your leather jacket out.

We are in love with fashion blogger and YouTuber Sophie’s casual weekend look – draping a leather jacket over her shoulders and pairing it with a crisp black and white print jumper and blue skinny jeans. It’s the perfect Sunday lunch date look when you wanna impress that guy you’ve been chatting to via Bumble.

Want to add a little tough to your everyday work look – and ditch the stuffy work blazer at the same time? Take your fave crisp white shirt hanging in the wardrobe and pair this with a structured leather jacket ft. strong shoulders, a sharp collar and soft leather that naturally creases with wear. Finish with easy to wear black jeans and ankle boots for simple winter style.

Check out how fashion blogger Daniel has put this look together – you won’t even need to change when you head out after work for drinks and a catch up with your mates. Daniel’s jacket has that good looking, well worn vibe about it – you definitely want leather that has that lived in feeling, as soon as it arrives.

Leather jackets look so good worn with a strong slogan tee, skinny black jeans that stop just above the ankle and leather boots to finish the look off.

Michelle – one half of blogger duo Two Halves – wears our Bella Leather Biker Jacket. This jacket was mega popular, so sadly isn’t in stock anymore but our Mhairi Nubuck Leather Jacket features a similar strong collar and soft leather and ticks all the boxes. We love this material and how it works with the pop of red on her slogan tee. It’s definitely a look to try out when winter starts to thaw again next year and you can get away with a thin layer or two.

How to style your leather jacket

Toughen up a cable knit with a leather jacket. We’re all about mixing textures – throwing on a tough leather jacket over a softer jumper. Add a white collared shirt underneath if you’re layering and chuck in some camo print for interest – and to tap into this season’s military trend.

James from Black Saint recently modelled this look for us when we hung out with the group – and we’re loving this style for Friday night bar hangouts or travelling to a new city for a break with your mates. James is wearing our Iconic Leather Flight Bomber Jacket from the Idris Elba designed range – if you fancy playing copy cat.

What to wear with leather jackets

Tone up in all black, with leather on top. Tonal dressing isn’t going anywhere and if you’re a big fan of black in your wardrobe, a leather jacket is the perfect addition. Grab a jacket with a more casual vibe – like a bomber featuring leather look sleeves to keep things low key.

Justin, another of the stylish Black Saint lads, showed us how to style leather jackets for down days. Wearing a leather bomber – our Ryan Suede Bomber Jacket is great for creating a similar vibe – with a plain black t-shirt and accessorising with a statement necklace, he’s got that casual weekend style nailed. Grey jeans broke up the look a bit but still kept the tonal theme going.
