The wardrobe basics- how to wear a leather jacket



Hey everyone

Trends come and go some last a season and some a few but there are items that last in your wardrobes forever, you can call them a basic or a classic but they really are the fundamental pieces that make your wardrobe functional. Miss out on them and you will find yourself in a crisis situation more often than not. The workhorses as i like to call them are the building blocks that help you rock and shine in those trends in a chic and put together way. As per the pyramid rule of fashion styling your wardrobe should have a minimum of 35% basics to keep you well turned out every single time. More on that later!

I think basics can be different for different people depending on their lifestyle, work, place of living and personal preference. For e.g for some a black jeans maybe a basic and for some a blue so it really depends and i suggest you take a stock of your wardrobe and your lifestyle, etc write the basics for your wardrobe and then make sure you always have them stocked in the perfect condition, I strongly suggest investing in basics so do not hold yourself from spending.


Having said that there are a few items that work for majority of us so i have decided to create a new series on the blog, the wardrobe basics, dividing it further into summer and winter for obvious reasons. In this series i will be talking about the mood of the piece, what to look for while shopping and also some ideas on styling. To start the series, today i am going to talk about the first item in the winter wardrobe basics, a black leather jacket. 

A leather jacket is really a timeless piece that gets better with age.

What a leather jacket does-              1. Adds rocker edgy vibe to any look.
                                                           2. People generally perceive the wearer as more confident.
                                                           3. Makes an outfit casual but still keeps it polished.
                                                           4. Black is a universal colour that goes with everything.
                    

What to look for when buying a leather jacket - Great quality, do not hesitate from splurging as you will wear it year after year.  

                                                
Consider your body type before you buy  
  1. rectangular/ hourglass shape- flare detail or metallic details highlighting the waist.
  2. apple shape-  choose one that is longer with not many details to bring focus to your heavy part i.e the upper body.
  3. pear shape - just the opposite choose shorter length so the focus is on your small part i.e the waist and not your hips.
And here are some ways i wear it and some suggestions to wear:

Go to outfit-               skinny jeans+ tee+ boots
To brunch-                 with a midi skirt / midi dress + sneakers
To afternoon tea-      culottes+ fancy blouse+pointed toe heels
To meetings-             tailored trouser+ shirt+ pumps
To date night-           shirt dress+ leggings+ booties
When its very cold-  over knit or under coat

How to wear a leather jacket in  2017
  1.  wear with pleated metallic skirts + ballerina flats.
  2. high waisted straight leg embroidered denim + choker neck knit+ embroidered jacquard boots.
  3. fringed denim + loafer/ slippers + bell sleeve blouse.
  4. zipped inside a long puffer jacket.
  5. a dark floral lace or mesh detail maxi dress + velvet boots .
