The leather jacket is one of those statement pieces that never goes out of fashion. Great to throw on when you need an extra layer, a leather jacket will add a new dynamic to your spring wardrobe. Here are four of my favourite leather looks for spring.
Toughen up your Spring Style

My favourite look for spring is the contrast of a leather jacket against a dainty dress. The beauty of a leather jacket is that it complements almost all of your favourite pieces making it an uber versatile addition to your seasonal wardrobe. This look works well day or night and is an effortless way to add an urban edge to a floral dress. You can use your leather jacket to create a dramatic contrast against this season’s hottest pastel shades.

Dress Up Jeans and a Tee

A humble leather jacket can instantly add a touch of glam to any laid back look. If your staple spring wardrobe consists of jeans and plain tees, you can pay homage to the sport luxe trend with a touch of leather. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour. Cream, burgundy, beige and even blue leather jackets are set to be big this season.

Studs and Spikes

If you want to stand out for all of the right reasons this spring, studs and spikes are the answer. This season’s leather jacket is no wallflower and looks even better in a cropped style for spring. From studded collars to fully spiked sleeves, this leather trend is not for the faint hearted.

Add Glamour to Tired Trouser Suits

Want to spruce up a tired trouser suit? Adding a lightweight classic leather jacket can add instant glamour and bring last season’s hottest looks up to speed. A classic black leather jacket can take your look from day to night and make your office look acceptable for after work drinks.

Women’s leather jackets have been spotted everywhere from the catwalk to the celebrity circuit and can be found on the high street for a reasonable price. Whether you have a little or a lot to spend, you can always find a leather look jacket in your price range. A worthy investment for any fashion forward female, a leather jacket is wearable season in, season out. Unlike other fashion trends, this one is set to stay. Will you be investing in a leather jacket this spring?
