How to Wear a Leather Blazer

Words by

Every wardrobe can benefit from a few expertly selected leather pieces; the hardy fabric is a real wardrobe transformer, a shortcut to elevating any look and adding instant polish. Taking a traditionally wintry fabric into spring may feel like a challenge, but allow us to convince you otherwise. It’s all about finding the right piece – like this wear-forever Whistles blazer – and matching it up with the right wardrobe classics. These four style equations show you how to do it with ease.

Toughen Up Pretty

A feminine spring dress can be given a whole new lease of life with the addition of a leather blazer, which instantly toughens it up. Add in matching black leather accessories and a subtle flash of gold and you have a look fit for spring days or nights.

Team With Utility

Leather is the perfect companion to the flourishing utility trend that’s set to take over spring and summer. The hardy fabric teams beautifully with cargo-inspired pieces as they share a functional vibe. Try pairing your leather blazer with some beige cargo trousers and layering over a simple camisole and denim shirt for a relaxed daytime outfit with a little polish.

Make It Monochrome

Keep it simple: monochrome never goes out of style and never looks boring. Team your leather blazer with a crisp white denim maxi (denim skirts are another huge trend for SS23), striped tank and simple leather belt for a low-key get-up that packs a fresh style punch.

Just Add Denim

A short denim dress is an investment piece you’ll wear again and again, all year round – and it’s also a great companion piece to a leather blazer as the two fabrics contrast perfectly with one another. For warmer, off-duty days, brave bare legs and chunky ankle boots.
