How to Wear a Leather Jacket with a Dress

If you’ve seen my outfits a time or two before, you’ve probably noticed that I like to play around with both girly and edgy pieces. I love a great pair of moto boots and much as I do a glamorous gown. And that’s why I’m such a big fan of pairing flirty, feminine dresses with more masculine jackets. There is something about putting those fashion contradictions together that just works. So, I knew as soon as I picked up a floaty little frock on a recent vacation that it would go perfectly with my go-to hooded faux leather jacket. I scored it in one of my TSF Box Service boxes and I’ve worn it SO many times already… So, let’s discuss how to wear a leather jacket with a dress.

This dress is the perfect multi-purpose piece because not only does it work great with booties, as I’ve worn here, but they would work just as well with flats or even heels. It’s amazing how much you can switch up a look with shoes and accessories. I decided to go for a wrist full of beaded bracelets for this outfit, but I can so see this dress with one of my tassel necklaces and maybe even over the knee boots. The sky’s the limit when you go for versatility. That’s pretty much what I’m always looking for when I buy something new. Who’s with me?

Now I obviously wore tights with my dress because it’s January, but this is the kind of dress that will allow me to push up the sleeves and rock with bare legs when the weather warms up…Again, I’m trying to make things easier for all of us by featuring outfit ideas that can be easily remixed! So, while today we’re talking about how to wear a leather jacket with a dress, tomorrow it could be how to the dress with flats.

    Super cute but the only leather jacket I have is a baby pink harley one.
    I don’t think it would look nearly as cute as yours does. LOL!!

    I love the leather jacket and the accessories you added with it. I think it takes confidence to pull of an outfit like this. You rocked it.

    Very nice look. I don’t wear too many dresses and skirts this time of year, but will reserve it for spring. The boots are lovely too. I have a pair similar to that.
