You don’t have to ride a motorcycle or be a rock star to wear this summer’s hottest trend. Leather jackets have made a comeback, and are as much as a fashion staple as a little black dress. A great leather jacket will never go out of style and can be worn year round since they are made in various degrees of textures from thick to thin, making it very easy for you to wear this trend during any season. The trick to finding the perfect leather jacket for the summer is choosing one that is lightweight, and finding the right style. You also have to decide on how much you’re willing to spend. If you can’t afford genuine leather, you can still look fashionable without paying a hefty price tag.
Perhaps the most practical and biker chic jackets for the summer are the short styles. It looks stylish when paired with jeans and a simple top, or can be used to jazz up a dull outfit. Check out the stylish was actress Shenae Grimes used a short biker leather jacket to enliven the plain black dress she is wearing.
Hip-length jackets fall right where the hip begins and are a very classic and sexy option.
Medium-length jackets fall below the hip and hits the top of your thighs. These are the most figure flattering and are perfect to wear with mini dresses.
I don’t recommend trench leather jackets for summer, but during the colder months this classic frames your body’s silhouette and is an elegant choice compared to bulky winter coats.
