Good morning!

 

Leather vest is a timeless piece that should exist in your wardrobe no matter the season, your age or personal style.

How to pick your leather vest?

Well, this is easy, count that the leather vest you choose should fit your body properly, the same way a blazer or a leather jacket does.

During the 20th Century black leather jackets became a staple item of clothing for the rebel biker. The leather vest derivates from the jacket, keeping the fit but loosing the sleeves.

 

Choose a versatile leather vest, a vest that can be worn alone over a short or even under a blazer or a jacket.

How to mix and match the leather vest?

My personal choice for the first days of fall is a plai t-shirt with contrast short denims. Usually the leather vest requires some simple pieces to wear with them. Think plain t-shirts and jeans to get the greaser look and finish it with some plain trainers.

The trick to wearing a leather vest is making sure that you don’t bulk it out underneath. Keep the vest fit comfortably, almost like a suit jacket, showing your body shape. Shirts and t-shirts are the best friends of your leather vest and can be used in styling as a base.

 When you style up a leather vest with studs or other applications keep in mind not to match with it more than 2 colours. Usually you’ll find in stores black leather vests, especially biker style like the one I’m wearing so I recommend you to play around the black.

My choice for jeans, to pair up with this biker vest is a short ripped white jeans. As other options I would recommend black plain or destroyed long jeans in case you would like to have a black on black outfit. Should you like a contrast in your styling? Pair then to this vest a pair of formal trousers and a plain slim ft shirt.

When it comes about footwear, for sure I went for comfy trainers in matching colours. I would wear as well for this outfit a pair of high-tops in black or white.

Where to wear the leather vest? I would wear it in a day casual outfit with rock influences or a relaxed evening outfit where a dress code allows an urban outfit, when the vest is matched with denims. If you need your outfit to be more elegant try a lightweight leather vest underneath a blazer with formal trousers and leather shoes or even boots!
