With a red leather jacket, you can go for a number of different styles. Choose the right jacket size so it fits you properly, and then you can play around with, let's say, your motorcycle jacket. You don't need high-end designer jackets like Gucci, Michael Kors or Alexander McQueen, a simple zip jacket of the right color will work. But obviously a genuine leather, like lambskin leather, would work better than a faux leather moto jacket. This is because red leather is such a statement piece that you can use it to make a simple outfit into something more interesting, or you can use it to accent an already daring look. The direction you go, of course, will depend on your own personal aesthetic.
For any look you want to do, however, you'll absolutely need the following:
- A red leather jacket
- Creativity to put your look together
- Confidence to wear your look in public
If you're feeling in a bit of a creativity rut or you need help getting started, we've put together three different looks in this guide. Check out the checklists below to get started on any of these looks.
Look One: The Updated Classic Look with a Statement Jacket
- A pair of jeans in a classic straight cut, either black or dark blue
- A pristine white t-shirt or a black t-shirt
- Non-flashy and timeless shoes like Converse, loafers, or Chelsea boots.
Look Two: The Trendy Guy Look
If you're feeling ambitious, you can try out another one of this season's trends by matching your red leather jacket to a sleek pair of red leather boots. To do so, keep the rest of the outfit simple. For instance, you'll want:
- A simple pair of khakis
- A crisp, collared shirt
- Red boots
Look Three: The Daredevil Outfit
If you're feeling more daring, you can push a red leather jacket to its limit by combining it with lots of other statement pieces. One trick is to tie everything together with the same color. For instance, try out:
- White or patterned jeans
- A graphic t-shirt that features red accents
- Shoes that incorporate the color red
Now, let's get into how the different parts of these outfits works together and talk about some ways that you can customize your look.
