    Have breakfast with me mamma
    I hope they'll let us in
    Got a leather jacket on
    I know that it's a sin

    As the lyrics suggest, wearing a leather jacket is a sin – Well, why it wouldn’t be? After all, the eyes of the crowd follow you when you walk on the street!

    Pairing tips for the Striped genuine leather jacket:

    • Formals are all about dress shirts. You need not worry; dress shirts with formal pants and Oxford shoes are a sign you are already dressed to kill. But add up the striped jacket, and the spellbinding effect has crossed the highest degrees.
    • Hi-neck, with regular jeans and Jodhpurs, are classy. Coupling the dress up with a striped jacket will surely be the perfect combination.
    • An ordinary tee, with formal pants and loafers combined with the creamy genuine leather jacket, is another stylish option you have when you want to wear this jacket.
    • Black-hooded vest- tasteful and refined

    People generally worry that a vest will not go with formals. But being a tad bit creative with your clothes can help you try a new combination. The black vest has a quilted lining that helps keep you warm.

    So here are some ways where you can put the hooded vest to the best of use:

    • You can wear a round neck sweater shirt with your pants. Put on the hooded vest and wear it with Jodhpurs or ankle boots to add the glitz.
    • Wearing it atop a formal shirt and then going on with a front zipped jacket is also a great idea!
    • Going Vintage is Never a Bad Idea

    If there is one major takeaway you should take from this guide, it is that a great vintage leather jacket has very, very few substitutes. So, we wouldn’t have done this guide a justice if we had not brought in a look with the vintage leather jacket.

    • Take out your finest white formal shirt and your best chinos, because this look requires nothing but your absolute best. Keep the overall colors of your outfit light but match your belt to the jacket. Going along the same line, match your shoes with your jackets.
    • The preferred shoes to wear here are either your kiltie loafers or your derby formals. To complete the look, add a plain slim tie for your preferences and pin it down with your tie pin. Your look is complete.
    • If you want to take it up a notch, you can add a great solid sweater to complement your jacket. But you must keep in mind that the sweater is just not a baggy one and fits snuggly over your body while letting the jacket do its thing.

    Keep Experimenting

    But really, the essence of getting your leather jacket layering informal outfits right is all about experimenting. Keep trying new jackets over your more formal and semi-casual looks to find the very best of your leather layering.

    While men may find some trouble getting their layers right, it seems women always seem to get their leather jacket over dress layering right. Maybe it's just that women are the true fashion divas.

    But what it takes to rock a leather layer over your formal clothes is your confidence. And in true essence, wearing leather jackets is all about the courage to rock that looks and be yourself no matter what. So, we leave you with this guide, hoping you will make good use of it.

    Happy Layering!
