Why the leather jacket makes the perfect winter accessory

January 8, 2020

Looking for a new winter accessory? A Denver leather jacket is the PERFECT winter staple. Depending on what the day’s weather is, you might have to wear a heavier coat with it - but that doesn’t make it any less stylish when you get to your destination. We’ve compiled the four reasons that a leather jacket is the perfect winter accessory.

Reason #1: Classic
Leather jackets have a classic style to them. Created in the early 1900s the leather jacket has many styles and variations that can quite literally be worn in any situation or any occasion. Leather jackets, traditionally, have a neutral color and very little “bells and whistles” on the exterior, making them the perfect fixture if you are looking for something more clean cut.

Reason #2: Fashion
Leather jackets, are classic as we mentioned, but they are also fashionable. Leather jackets are made in nearly every color, and have a number of different styles available for purchase. As fashion has started to become more mainstream, the leather jacket has begun to be an affordable way to add some style, flair, and elegance to your wardrobe. Pairing a leather jacket with a pair of jeans or athleisure is the perfect look for a weekday, or night out.

Reason #3: Long-Lasting
As long as you take care of your investment your leather jacket can last years, maybe even decades. The longer you wear your leather jacket, the softer and more flexible it becomes. Which of course, means more comfortability! It’s important to remember that while leather jackets are durable, they do need to be cleaned and handled with care. It’s important to not put too many chemicals on your leather jacket, and never clean it with any chemical that you haven’t previously tested first.

Reaosn #4: It’s Comfortable
We’ve briefly touched on this already, but leather jackets are some of the most comfortable jackets you can own. The longer you wear them, the more comfortable they get. Not only does the fabric begin to lightly wear and get softer, but your leather jacket will actually fit to the shape of your body and it will truly become a jacket made custom for you! Remember, you have many options when it comes to leather jacket material - including cow leather, and even faux leather. All are equally comfortable!
