1. Avoid the total look

The first tip to combine the leather jacket is to avoid the total leather effect. Do not combine the leather jacket with trousers or skirts of the same material, to avoid a slightly outdated biker effect. And if the color of the skin is not black, but red, the "d" effect could even get worse! Even when you want to be rock, the basic suggestion is always: sobriety!

The ideal model of a leather jacket is as simple as possible. To facilitate combinations and not to overdo the look, it is better to avoid leather jackets with rhinestones, with too many studs or even with fur collars. The more the leather jacket is basic, the more you can indulge yourself in combining it with different things, even pins or jewels.

4. Discover the perfect match: leather jacket + skirt + heels

The leather jacket is perfect with jeans, of course, but if for once you want to try something different and of sure effect, choose this combination: leather jacket + skirt + heels, or alternatively ankle boots. The "rock" n "roll soul will still be there, but you will give that chic touch if you can only find the right skirt or dress. If you choose ankle boots instead of sandals and various high shoes, remember that with biker boots you will get a more rock "n" roll effect, while with ankle boots with heels you will have a more chic effect. Knee-high boots are not excluded, but be careful to choose the most sober pair possible.
The right combination to choose then depends on the occasions and places where you want to show off this look.
