A leather jacket should be considered every girl’s must-have edgy fashion item. It’s that one wardrobe piece that can give women an edgy look and can instantly elevate an attire from safe to fierce! Let's be honest, though: leather jackets, or leather pieces for that matter, could be hard to pull off, especially if you’re living in tropical regions like most parts of Asia. But when done right, this wardrobe option will definitely be able to give every fashion maven a sleek and trendy silhouette that’s just hard to achieve. 


So give leather jackets a chance to boost your wardrobe choice, channel your inner biker chick and check out our favourite ways on how to pull off the classic biker chic trend.

Try the oversized biker jacket

Remember how boyfriend jeans suddenly became such a big trend? Well, it’s sort of the same with an oversized biker jacket. An oversized leather piece can give the wearer an instant vintage vibe and can make women actually look dainty yet fierce especially when paired with something girly like a little black dress.

Faux fur leather


One thing that definitely goes well with a leather ensemble is a faux fur collar. The combo evokes an outdoor persona to whoever chooses to wear it, not to mention that it adds comfort during the cold months.


The leather top



Who says leather is for just jackets? There are now trendy options where leather tops can definitely be worn as a statement piece. There’s something that’s simply elegant yet strong about wearing a top that’s made with this material  — and did we mention how sleek the texture is?

Leather jackets are not limited to the usual black choices. Coloured leather jackets add a more casual finish to anyone who wishes to wear it, and it definitely adds a nice pop of colour to a plain ensemble.


Go with the whites

Much like the black leather jacket, white would go with just about anything — whether it’s a casual jeans or shirt outfit or a dressier blouse or skirt combination. And unlike the classic black, a white leather jacket definitely gives off a softer, more feminine appeal to the wearer.

A leather skirt is also another option that allows one to add a touch of fierceness into their wardrobe. A nice, fitted pencil cut skirt is not only elegant but can be worn with just about any top. Talk about day-to-night dressing.

There's a new addition to the list of weird style trends we think you'll like: the spliced fabric. And it's so intriguing that we thought it deserved its own article. This particular trend is very similar to the Frankenstein look that became popular last year. To recap, these are clothes — mostly dresses — that feature pattern hybrids. But while these only play with different prints, the spliced trend takes it to a whole new level by experimenting with different block colours and silhouettes. 


We're not gonna lie, it takes guts and loads of confidence to pull it off. Despite that, never be afraid to try because how else would you know if this look is for you. Ahead, the ways newbies can sport the spliced fabric trend.


Look for familiar silhouettes



Going for revamped familiar silhouettes is the best place to start if you just wanna dip your toes on this trend. It will also rejuvenate your love for old favourites from your childhood. Think polo shirts and dresses are boring now? You won't anymore when you add the spliced fabric style to the mix. Check out this playful piece from PH5 for evidence.


Think chic



Experimenting with a new style can go wrong easily if you go overboard. The antidote? Pick a sleek and chic one-piece. It's not at all difficult to style since the look is already set and all you have to do is pick shoes and bags that will complement the colours of your outfit.


For the sporty gals



Athleisure has a come a long way from just styling gym clothes into office outfits. Now, it's a whole style genre that stands on its own. If you love this type of simple and straightforward style but also want to try out new innovative looks from time to time, then the spliced fabric trend is perfect for this. Look for oversized pieces with a simple hybrid design that can serve as outerwear. 


Go for double-duty looks



Is it a dress or a coat? Surprise, it's both! Intriguing silhouettes like this piece from Monse doesn't just generate interest but is also very practical and easy to style. No more thinking about how to look good in layers during the colder months. Wearing this double-duty one-piece is a great way to be fashion-forward in a jiffy!
