A leather jacket is a fantastic piece, that adds an air of class to any outfit (and keeps you warm on cold nights!) Most people have, or have had, a black leather jacket at some point in their lives – but a brown jacket is a step away from the norm, and a fantastic addition to any wardrobe. So you’ve got this fancy new piece of clothing and you love it – but what to wear with a brown leather jacket? We’ve picked out a few ideas for you to work with.
Why wear a brown leather jacket
A leather jacket is a classy piece of clothing (here’re our tips for yellow jacket), and a brown leather jacket is a cut above the rest. Subtle and sexy – and it goes with just about everything – a brown leather jacket will do wonders to spice up your outfit.
You can find them in a few different lengths, so you will be sure of getting something that suits your style and your clothing. The colour of the jacket, whatever shade of brown it is, will add a lovely warm, earthy tone to the rest of your outfit, and you will stand out above all the plain black leather jackets too.
What to wear with brown leather jacket
It will go with jeans of all types, from skinny to flared; boyfriend fit or slouchy.
You will find that it also works really well with leggings, especially if you have a long flowing top and a pair of cute boots on.
You can pair your brown leather jacket with smart, tailored work trousers for a more formal look, or throw it on over ripped jeans for a more casual ensemble.
Black and white colours work perfectly with the brown leather jacket, as they enhance the warm colouring as well as looking cool.
You can wear just about anything under your jacket; a floral blouse for those summer days, with the jacket over your shoulders in case of a breeze, or a warm polo neck for the winter days when you’re feeling the cold and need to layer up.
If you are going to a gig then why not try your favourite band tee under it? You will look the height of casual coolness!
You can also make your jacket more formal, by going for a tailored shirt under it for those important work meetings.
If you are wearing a shorter jacket, you should pair it with a long skirt. This will mix up the lines of your outfit and make you look not only classy and cool, but seriously attractive too!
The longer brown leather jackets work best with shorter skirts for the same reason; the longer jacket is great in this case if you don’t want to look too much like you’re showing off too much of your body.
Dresses really are the brown leather jacket’s best friend. You can literally wear one over any dress you care to name, and you will look great!
Just watch the styling a bit; if you have a short jacket then pair it with a longer or maxi dress, for best effect.
Short dresses work really well under a jacket the falls below the hips or even longer, as this adds layers of interest to your outfit.
The classic LBD works amazingly with a brown leather jacket, as does its cousin, the little white dress. Both these colours are complemented perfectly by the colour of the jacket, and you can really step out in style in this combo.
As a general guide, brown ankle or knee high boots look great, and will pick out the colours of the jacket.
Trainers and flat shoes can also work really well with the jacket, especially if the rest of your outfit is casual.
Heels are a great addition to the jacket too; you can go for skyscraper stilettos or feminine strappy sandals – whichever your style suits that day.
You don’t have to worry too much about matching your shoes to your jacket as much as you might with another colour, as the brown is so forgiving that it goes with just about anything.
Scarves look great with a brown leather jacket, whether it’s a warm, woolly winter one or a skinny little neck piece which is just there to add colour.
You also don’t have to worry too much about matching your bag; any colour looks great with this style of jacket, so you can choose something that really stands out by itself and know that it won’t eclipse the jacket.
Gold jewellery looks great with brown, so you can deck yourself out in all your finery!
Also, go wild with colour in your accessories – this is a chance for you to show off your favourites without having to worry that the rest of your outfit won’t tie in together.
If you are looking for something to spice up your wardrobe – a piece with longevity that will last and last, and which will go with just about everything and make you look and feel your best, go for a brown leather jacket. You will not be disappointed!
