If you're in the mood to take your usual soft and feminine OOTDs to the grunge level, you can be sure that a rad leather jacket is your one-way ticket to achieve an edgy street style in a snap. A lot of girls are intimidated by this bold third-piece, but these days leather jackets aren't just all about rock-and-roll. In fact, leather outerwear is chic, classic, and always on-point, too! Still not sure if you can rock the leather jacket like a boss? Scroll down as we show you how you can wear a leather jacket and bring out the edgy you in a snap!

Pull a K-Stew and embrace the grunge of the leather jacket with an all-black look for the day. Throw on a pair of retro circular sunglasses for extra style points.

Take your leather style game up a notch by draping your jacket over your shoulders instead of wearing it. Opt for a little white dress and simple slip-ons to go with your bold jacket to balance the gritty leather.


For a fresh take on the leather jacket trend, opt for a camel jacket to break a sleek all-black outfit.

While a leather jacket is tough and gritty, it can be the perfect third-piece to a feminine look for the day, too! Wear it over a cute sundress and end the look with a pair of tights for an instant dose of cool.
