Bring in spring with the perfect wardrobe staple: Denver leather

April 17, 2019

As the cold Denver months start to move behind us, spicing up your spring wardrobe should be at the top of your to do list. While cleaning out and refreshing your wardrobe, be sure to make the perfect addition with a Denver leather jacket. 

Where to start 
The first step in finding the perfect leather jacket is to know where to start. What does your budget look like? What color leather would you prefer and wear? Is there a texture you prefer to wear? If you are going to invest in a leather jacket - finding a leather jacket that you will consistently wear is essential. Neutral tones of leather such as black, brown, and grey will make a great piece for a neutral-based wardrobe. Vibrant shades of leather will provide the perfect pop of color and make for a great statement piece. 

When shopping for your leather jacket, try a few different styles. You might find a jacket that you love online, but if they don’t allow returns and you try it on when it arrives you might be stuck with a jacket that doesn’t fit you and your style. 

Ways to style a leather jacket
There are a number of ways to style a leather jacket for the warmer months, try some of these tips: 
Athleisure: Dress up your leisure athletic wear with a neutral leather jacket
Work Wardrobe: Update your work wardrobe with a little flair through a neutral colored leather jacket
Pop of Color: Add a pop of color to your wardrobe with a pastel jacket 
Jeans: Pair a leather jacket with a pair of dark wash denim jeans for a casual but put together look

Tips to care for your leather jacket
If you are going to invest in a leather jacket, it’s important to take care of your purchase. The first step in caring for your leather jacket is purchasing a leather protectant. Before purchasing your protectant be sure to read the ingredients first. Purchasing a protectant that includes grease or wax provides more protection, but ultimately wears down the color and material faster than a silicone polymer product.  

You will also want to consider purchasing a leather conditioner, however this product should be applied occasionally and sparingly. Before purchasing a conditioner, come in to chat with us to determine if it’s necessary for the type of leather you are purchasing as well as what conditioner you need to purchase. Keeping your leather clean of salt deposits, which can build up over time, will also be essential as time goes on. Do not use any cleaners that are not made for leather to remove salt deposits, instead use a damp cloth to wipe down your leather - always let your leather air dry after.
