7 Ways to Rock a Leather Jacket — Even in the Summer!


Dust off your leather jacket and start showing it off with your summer style. A leather jacket can be the perfect way to add a bit of an edge to your look. One of my favorite combinations is the leather jacket with a fancy dress, like you can see here. I think it adds an unexpected element that really makes the outfit stand out. Before you head out for the afternoon, consider bringing along a leather jacket to pair with your favorite denim shorts or printed skirt.

Here are 7 ways you can still rock a leather jacket in the heat:
