Style 1: Outfit for clubbing

If you’re going out with your friends to get a drink to a club or bar, wearing a leather jacket is both the safest option to go with as well as the coolest thing you can wear according to the occasion. You can wear a plain white tee shirt underneath the jacket and pair it with ripped denim.

Leather jackets are a great thing to wear especially when you’re going out with a group of friends for some casual drinking because if you style it simplistically, it can turn into a great casual or semi-casual outfit.

Style 2: Outfit for a date

Some dates are the formal, fine dining kind for which you would wear a dress shirt or a suit. But then there are those slightly more casual dates, like going to a movie late at night or getting a quick snack and then going out on a drive. Whichever it may be, for dates like that wearing a leather jacket with a nice printed tee, paired with either black jeans or dark denim would make a really attractive outfit. You don't want to overkill it with a formal tuxedo, but you don't want to wear a plain white tee and jeans either, so wearing a leather jacket is a safe option.

Style 3: Outfit for a formal event

As difficult as it may be to believe, there are ways you can style a leather jacket to make your outfit look formal. Whether it's for an office meeting or a bachelor party or a dinner, you can pair it with a light-coloured, collared button down along with straight dark pants and formal shoes.

A leather jacket can make you look more youthful, so even if you decide to wear a tie along with it, the leather jacket might pull the whole look together.

Style 4: Outfit when you're travelling

You could be going on an international adventure, taking flights to different countries, or be travelling to the small town right outside your city. No matter where you're travelling to and how you're going, a leather jacket can go entirely up to your game.

A lot of people don't like to dress up while travelling for comfort reasons, but you can always take off the jacket if you feel like it. Similarly, wearing a leather jacket during flights is great because it can get pretty chilly; if you're going on a road trip or travelling on a bike, the leather jacket will protect you from the wind too.

No matter what the occasion may be, women's leather jackets seem to be one of those clothing items that adjust according to the scenario. You can make them work for a formal setting or a completely casual one, all depending on how you choose to style your outfit.
