There is nothing quite like a faux leather jacket. A closet staple, this piece makes transitioning from season to season effortless. Not only that, it makes you look like you put way more effort into your outfit than you actually did. If you’re wondering how to wear this piece or just looking for a fresh take on the trend, we’ve got your guide.

All About Athleisure

The athleisure trend shows no signs of slowing down. Whether it’s a Saturday morning errand run, or athleisure takes up half of your closet, adding a faux leather jacket will make your outfit look instantly pulled together. Throw on a pair of your favorite joggers or leggings with sneakers and pair it with your faux leather jacket for an effortlessly chic Saturday morning errand look.

Make a Sweet Dress Edgy

For those spring days when it’s not hot but not cold, pair your favorite faux leather biker jacket with a sweet, spring dress. Try pairing a jacket with metal hardware with a floral or lacy dress to give your outfit that extra edge. Wear with your favorite combat boots.

The Ultimate Travel Outfit

You can be comfy and chic while traveling thanks to some faux leather. For an ultra-sleek look, try a monochromatic look. Try pairing black leggings, a black tee, and a black faux leather jacket with a pair of black sneakers for your next travel OOTD. The ultimate comfortable yet chic way to travel.

Layer, Layer, Layer

Spring temps rise and fall. For those days when it’s freezing in the AM and hot AF in the afternoon, try layering your favorite faux leather jacket over a hoodie or sweater. Not only will you look super cool, you’ll be able to accommodate the indecisive spring weather.

The Boyfriend Jean

There is something so cool about pairing a faux leather biker jacket with boyfriend jeans. This is the ultimate “go anywhere and look amazing” outfit. Going to happy hour with friends? Perfect outfit. Brunch with bae? Perfect outfit. Running errands all day long? Perfect outfit. We could go on, but you get the point. Pair with your favorite graphic tee and booties or Converse.

Business Casual

Who says you can’t rock a faux leather jacket to work? We wouldn’t recommend wearing a studded biker jacket to your next board meeting, but pairing a sleek, blazer-like jacket adds structure to your outfit without being overly stuffy. Wear over a sleek blouse and pencil skirt.

When in Doubt, Go Pastel 

Yes, we love our black faux leather jackets but if you’re feeling a little adventurous, why not add a pastel faux leather jacket to your wardrobe? Try a hunter green jacket paired with a comfy v neck for the ultimate casual look.

The Classic Motorcycle Look

 We couldn’t create a list of ways to wear a faux leather jacket without bringing it back to its root now, can we? This is the ultimate bad-ass look. Pair ripped jeans, combat boots, and your favorite moto jacket and rock that motorcycle-chic look for Saturday night drinks with friends!
