How to Wear a Leather Blazer

Edited by
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.

1
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.

2
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.

3
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.

4
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.
