Reasons why you should have leather jacket
I have been always a great fan of leather jackets. In fact, I am looking to wear them whenever I get a chance. I love all kinds of jackets no matter what material they are made of because they all have their own unique characteristics. I prefer cotton or linen jackets for slightly warmer days. They are so lightweight and soft. On a cold day, a heavier wool jacket keeps me warm and a denim jacket gives me a different style in a usual day. There are a lot of different materials jackets available in the market to enhance your style, however, leather jackets are my all time favourite. The best part of these jackets is they can be worn with every kind of outfit and suit everyone. Doesn’t matter what your age is and which part of the world you are living in. Ok, now I will give some reasons why I love the leather jacket and why you should have at least one pair in your wardrobe.
They are versatile
Leather jackets can be worn in endless style. They can be nicely paired with jeans, skirt dresses and trousers etc. Even you can give a unique touch to your simple plain dress by wearing it. If you are a regular reader of COB, you must be aware how much I admire leather jackets and how many different ways, I have worn it. Check out here.
These are timeless
I don’t remember when I started admiring these jackets. In my teenage, I was surprised with the name of these jackets like biker jackets, bomber jackets…I used to think why they are called such names. Then I got a book in which I read about their history and was surprised to know that leather jackets have been around for over a century, for about 1900s. It was started by aviation pilots and the people who operate the aircraft. They used it due to extremely cold and freezing temperatures when they were at such Heights. These kinds of jackets kept them warm and protected from the cold. But gradually they became popular with some beautiful makeover and since then it has been in vogue and has become a fashion statement piece for both men and women.
These are soft and comfy
These days leather jackets are soft, comfy and thin. The texture is smooth and buttery and feels very easy on the skin. Once a time when means of a leather jacket was a heavy, stiff and uncomfortable thing but today it is completely changed. Now you can buy some very fine quality leather jackets that feel so soft and enjoyable. It’s a great option for fall and spring seasons when you need something light which can protect from cold.
They are easy to maintain
The best part of these jackets is they totally easy to maintain. No need to go for a dry cleaning or anything else. You just need to wipe out your jacket with a damp cloth if you notice some dust or dirt on it. But yes, one thing which I learned from my experience is the conditioning of your jacket. It’s very important that you condition it on regular basis to prevent it from drying out. We all know, leather has a tendency to dry out over time. If the condition will not be accomplished, they will develop cracks and the damage. There are different ways to condition your leather jacket but I love to use saddle soap to condition it. It’s super easy to do. You can do it once in six months and just free from all tensions 🙂
They give a youthful feeling
Yes, It’s true because I have felt it. A strange attractiveness comes when you pair your leather jacket with your simple outfit. It gives your whole look a youthful vibe. Doesn’t matter what is your age, you can wear it in your own ways. Once I wore a woollen kurta with jeans and when I saw myself in the mirror, I felt my outfit quite flat and boring. Then I pair it with a leather jacket and believe me not only I loved myself but also I got a lot of appreciation from others. You just need to know how to wear it.
Leather jacket is a smart investment
Leather jackets can be a bit expensive if you compare it with blazer or jackets from some other materials but you should remember that you are investing your money in a worthy thing. You have to invest once and then use it for long long time and enjoy.
They look elegant and rich
Don’t think so? Whenever you wear your jacket whether it is a deep shade of burgundy, brown or emerald green or in some soft pastel colour, it will feel and make you luxurious and expensive. Always try to choose a high-quality jacket. Believe me a fine quality jacket with some interesting details will make your simple and ordinary outfit rich and classy.
Coming to my outfit:
Now on my outfit topic, as you can see I have got my another jewel, yes it’s a black faux leather belted biker jacket which I got from Zaful. This jacket was on my wishlist for a long time. The leather of this is very fine in quality. It’s not heavy and feels soft and comfortable. The weather was quite pleasant that day when I clicked these pictures. I paired the jacket with a plain wine red dress with a drawstring waist. It’s a simple but cute dress. You can wear it with different ways. I will definitely go to wear it in other ways like with jeans or palazzo. The air was cool so I protect myself with a black hat and finished this look with my favourite black ankle boots, a golden purse and a black stoned necklace. What do you think about this look?
