How to Style a Leather Jacket

Dear Jenn,
I have a leather jacket in my closet and would like to put it to use again since it's whats in fashion again. Can you show me some ways to style it up and use it as a fashion piece and not just something to keep me warm?

Dear Tanya,
Leather jackets aren't just for bikers anymore =) Not only can you dress them up, you can suit them up and look classy too. Just build around the jacket and use the jacket as an accessory, kind of the icing on the cake.

Go over your wardrobe again and take a good look at what you have in your closet and use some of these examples to get ideas on how to mix and match your outfits. Here are how some of the celebs are rocking their leather jackets...

Lourdes Leon, with mom Madonna, is decked out in a Dolce & Gabanna ensemble.
She keeps it feminine by dolling up her biker chic leather jacket with a vintage inspired lace and ruffle mini dress.

Christina Milian is wearing a bubble gum pink leather jacket with fitted jeans. She kept it hot by pairing it
with a pair of bowed bubble gum pumps to match. A good everyday look.

Rihanna accomplished her classy chic look here with a Burberry quilted leather jacket, pencil skirt and cork pumps.
Very suitable for work or important meetings.
Vanessa Hudgens goes bohemian with this camel suede leather jacket and white cotton bohemian top. She even tied her hair into a side fishbraid to complete the look. To get this look, put together pieces in earth tones, and the more flowy and organic the material, the better.

The right jacket can even be pulled off as evening wear as seen with this lovely soft and feminine chiffon dress.

Ooooo, I love this look, I call this the Matrix look. Achieve this look by pairing your black leather jacket with all black and everything tight as does Jessica Alba in this pic.

Taylor Momsen's is rockin' the 80's look by pairing her black biker jacket with a simple black tank, hot pink mini skirt accented with ruffles, and of course you can't pull off the 80's look without fishnet stockings!!!

 Reference these pictures as inspiration for the look you want to achieve. Again, rethink every article of clothing you have, be creative and have fun doing it!
