Whether you will be riding your motorcycle around this summer or hitting the town, a statement leather jacket is always in style! There are many different kinds of leather jackets for different purposes. So how do you know which leather jacket style is the right one for you? Let’s take a look at some of the most common types of leather jackets and what they are best used for!
If you already have a motorcycle or are considering getting one, having the proper equipment to protect yourself is crucial. A biker jacket is specifically designed to be thick, strong, and durable. This type of jacket is built to take a beating. Biker jackets were originally designed to protect the rider from the elements such as rain or strong winds and additionally to act as a small layer of paddling in case the rider were to fall off. Biker jackets nowadays come in many different colors and styles and can be customized to your liking!
A moto jacket
is a modern and fun variation of a traditional biker jacket. This style of jacket is much more form-fitting and fashion-oriented. Falling just above the waist, this jacket is the perfect statement piece to add to your wardrobe. The main zipper is often offset to one side or the other to further accentuate the waist of the person wearing it. A large collar and lapels that fall beneath the collar bone is another indicator of this style of jacket. Since this jacket is more for fashion than functionality, the leathers used are often softer to form better to the body. Abstract colors such as red or blue compliment this jacket style well. Unique details are often incorporated in these jackets so be on the lookout!
Much like blazers made of other materials, a leather blazer is a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe. Leather blazers typically are longer in style and fall at the middle of the hip. These jackets feature large lapels like the moto jacket, but are less form fitting. Three or four buttons run down the middle of this jacket with a pocket on either side. While this style is much less form-fitting and detailed, it is still considered to be a jacket style that is more worn for fashion than function and is typically made with softer leathers. Leather blazers are typically found in solid colors such as black, brown, beige, or white and are quite versatile, making them the perfect added layer to your outfit!
