Street Style: Take Leather Into Summer Like Kayleigh

Submitted by on Tuesday, 15 June 2010 | No Comment

If you’re anything like me, you won’t want to pack your beloved leather jacket away with your Winter woolies just yet. After all, a leather jacket is often an expensive investment piece, so we want to get as much wear out of it as possible. Leather is such a versatile material to wear in a jacket, and believe it or not, it is perfect for taking through into the warmer months. Kayleigh here shows us a great example of how to mix leather with lighter pieces, but still maintains a rocky feel.

Kayleigh wears a jacket by New Look, T shirt by H&M, Boots from Primark and carries a Miss Selfridge bag.

To achieve Kayleighs look, go for some black skinny jeans, or for a lighter feel, opt for leggings. Team with a striped tee and slouchy boots, and finish off with an ultra cool biker jacket. For warmer days, swap the boots for sandals in a bright colour and add a bag in a clashing shade.

For a different take on Kayleigh’s look, go for bleach denim jeans. These are a really nice contrast to the leather, and add more of a rocky feel. Also, for more of a summery feel, why not go for a pastel shade of leather? This gives more of a feminine feel, and goes really well with the romance and floral trends that are so big right now.

Even if you just use your leather jacket for cool evenings, make sure you don’t hide it away! They are so easy to wear, and I’ll be sure to keep mine at the front of my wardrobe for a long time yet!
