Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or a blanket if you’re in the Northeast/Midwest, in which case we won’t blame you), you know leather jackets are THE jackets right now for men and women. Whether it’s the “moto”, “bomber”, “aviator”, or the tried and true “classic” style, leather jackets are having their moment. With the plethora of options out there, it could be slightly overwhelming just how to style these jackets. Fear not, Members Only is here to help.
Ladies, gone are the days of the classic biker leather jacket! In the past, women’s leather jackets tended to be simplistic; very basic colors, fits, and washes. Now, however, they have evolved into more eccentric styles. Designers are playing with bright colors, different washes, and new styles. Take, for example, our Two-Tone Retro Moto Leather Jacket for women. In two color combinations (burgundy/black, olive/black) and a vintage-moto fit, this is a fresh take on a rather classic jacket. For this jacket, keep in mind fit. Since this is a fitted style, it’s quite versatile. Throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans, a t-shirt, a casual scarf, and some wedge sneakers and you’ve got yourself the perfect weekend outfit. Replace the boyfriend jeans with a pair of skinny’s (dark blue or black), keep the tee, lose the scarf, change into some caged heels (which are totally in style right now), add some jewelry: instant date night outfit.
Guys, we did not forget about you! Men’s leather jackets are a staple for every guy’s wardrobe. They are a versatile, stylish way to A) make any outfit instantly cooler and B) keep warm. Our Engineered Café Jacket does just that. In a sleek, classic fit, this leather jacket is the ultimate wardrobe must-have. Wear it with a pair of jeans, v-neck t-shirt, Converse sneakers, and you have the perfect Saturday night and/or Sunday brunch outfit. For more formal occasions, pair this jacket with a printed button-up, solid tie, dark jeans or pants, and some oxfords or loafers.
