5 Brown Leather Jacket Outfit Ideas for Women

Share

WORDS BY LUCY HARDY

 

Versatile, reliable and with a style icon status that has stood the test of time like no other, the leather jacket is the real MVP of outerwear. And whilst a classic black design is a mainstay in all of our wardrobes, it's 2019 – the year of trying new things, so we’re here to help you switch up your leather jacket game in one of SS19’s hottest hues.

 

Brown Leather Jacket Outfit Idea No 1:

70s Style

When we think brown leather jacket, a strong ‘70s vibe comes to mind, as back then brown was the shade to be seen in (just ask your grandparents.) Luckily, 70s style has made a comeback. Tap into the trend with a belted safari jacket from Maison Margiela, fringing from Alberta Ferretti or opt for a waistcoat style from Chloé.

 

Brown Leather Jacket Outfit Idea No 2:

Set the tone

Perhaps it’s the Burberry effect – Riccardo Tisci’s hotly anticipated debut featured 50 shades of beige, but brown and beige hues have been seen everywhere this season. Coffee, chocolate, chestnut, burnt umber (if you’re feeling fancy) – whatever you call it, it’s in. Take a tonal approach to styling your leather jacket by mixing it with varying shades of brown. Extra style points for contrasting textures.

 

Brown Leather Jacket Outfit Idea No 3:

Out of the box

The queen of jolie laide (French for "pretty ugly"),  if anyone can make brown wearable its Miuccia Prada. This season she takes it back to the 90s with oversized boxy leather jackets in buttery caramel tones. Give the look a 2019 update with a pair of on-trend cycling shorts and hiking-style sneakers.

 

Brown Leather Jacket Outfit Idea No 4:

Mix with Prints

Brown can be a tricky colour to pull off,  and if you’re not feeling the head-to-toe look then mix it up with a bold print. Animal, floral, stripes, polka dot or clashing all over; this season when it comes to prints, pretty much anything goes.

 

Brown Leather Jacket Outfit Idea No 5:

Leather and Lace

You know what they say: opposites attract. Lace was all over the SS19 collections and this season it’s contrasted with masculine silhouettes. A tan Saint Laurent bomber or a distressed biker jacket from Polo Ralph Lauren will offset this feminine fabric perfectly.
