Do Choose Genuine Leather
I know this is probably common sense, but it’s still worth mentioning that you should choose a leather jacket made of genuine leather. Some jackets sold as “leather” don’t actually contain leather. Rather, they are made with a synthetic material that mimics the look and feel of leather. Known as “faux leather,” these jackets lack the unique characteristics of genuine leather that make it such an attractive choice. Granted, faux leather jackets typically cost less than their counterpart, but this is one instance in which the saying “you get what you pay for” holds true.
Don’t Mix Brown and Black
Being that brown is one of the most popular colors for leather jackets, it’s not uncommon for individuals to wear a brown leather jacket with black clothes and/or accessories. Maybe you have black shoes that you’d like to wear with your leather jacket. Well, if the leather jacket is brown, it’s best to avoid wearing black. Even small things like your shoes will have an impact on your appearance. And going back to the basics of fashion 101, brown and black do not go together. These two colors clash with one another, creating an awkward appearance that simply doesn’t work. If you plan on wearing a brown leather jacket, pair it with similar brown-colored shoes.
Do Wear it During the Winter
Not all seasons are appropriate for wearing a leather jacket. When it’s scorching hot during the “dog days of summer,” for instance, you should probably leave your leather jacket at home. On the other hand, when it’s blistering-cold outside during the freezing winter weather, there’s no better time to wear a leather jacket. These jackets are not only stylish, but they are also ultra-warm and comfortable. A leather jacket is guaranteed to keep you warm during these otherwise cold winter days. The thick fabric acts as a barrier of insulation, trapping your body heat and preventing it from escaping. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you can only wear a leather jacket during the winter. Rather, you should consider the temperature and whether or not it’s cool enough to wear one.
