Its tiny sibling better start counting its blessings. It is official: the fitted skinny leather jacket is gone and replaced by its sophisticated grown up classic sister the oversized leather jacket that has slung off celebs’, bloggers’, and all the who’s who’s of the sartorial world’s shoulders way too much lately for us to remain ignorant to its fashion statement.
Ever since Kim Kardashian’s style has evolved more into slouchy oversized cuts and designs it’s like everyone was finally ready to practice what fashion designers were preaching for some time. And so shops are now packed with different versions of oversized leather jackets.
The oversized leather jacket is basically the same shit only cut bigger, slightly heavier, a bit more vintage BUT a lot more sophisticated. It is basically the classic leather jacket of the 90s with an 80s twist, and a modern style.
It can be simple, studded, or embroidered, or packed with badges, as long as it casually slungs off your shoudlers it is perfect. Truth is, it’s got that off-your-shoulders vibe better any jacket in the world, and it translates to a very simple, non-fussy, but really cool style instantly.
How to wear the oversized leather jacket?
The easiest question ever, really. It goes with literally anything, BUT its best is revealed when styled with classic high waisted denim jeans and a white shirt, with a slip dress a la Kendall Jenner, or carelessly thrown over your activewear on chilly days.
Of course it’ll be the perfect piece to don over a sweater, over knit dresses, over your office attire – because it is versatile with an edge.
It really is no rocket science to wearing a leather jacket. There is only one rule: pick quality jackets that look expensive and classic, go a size bigger rather than too fitted.
Here are my fave picks for you.
