Leather jacket is undoubtedly a wardrobe staple. We shared how to style it at different ages (here). Today let’s take a hint from chic stylish celebrities and trendsetters, learn how to style it with new trends.
I will break this series into three parts: how to wear leather jackets with feminine pieces, with bold statement pieces and casual/everyday pieces. As you can see from above, this entry is our first part and also my favorite: teaming tough leather jacket with girly dresses.
When feminine meets masculine, the juxtaposition is always fresh and attractive. Compared to cheerful color prints, black and white patterns give girly dresses a mysterious, edgy touch. Another thing we can learn from these two looks is how important accessories are: although the two ladies are using a similar “formula”– leather jacket paired with print dress–Emma Stone chose nude ballet flats and lavender scarf to soften toughness, while Karolina Kurkova used satchel and ankle booties to highlight the edgy, care-free vibe.
