Styling Tip: Mix Leather and Denim

One-Minute Makeover: Mix Up Your Denim and Leather Layers

As we transition from chunky Winter layers to lighter Spring iterations, it's the optimal time to mix things up literally. And the best part? There's no shopping spree required — a quick trip to the back of your closet will suffice. This week's wardrobe revamp pairs the slick with the laid-back; the bottom line is to keep the material mashup fresh and funky. Amp up your mix-and-match quotient with a little jean-inspired styling trick: wear your denim and leather together.

  • By juxtaposing your tried-and-true denim jacket with super luxe pieces, you're creating a diversified textural effect. Jean material exudes a casual vibe, while leather maintains a classic cool look, no matter what. It's an easy way of striking an effortless balance between dressed up and not trying too hard.
  • How many ways can you style this duo? Let us count the ways. From a leather-and-khaki trench coat to a jean jacket-leather sheath combo, we love that there's flexibility in pairing the two materials together. For a totally on-point Spring look, pair a chambray button-up with a leather pleated skirt. It's ladylike, edgy, and can be worn from day-to-night.
  • To ensure you're ready for whatever Spring temps are thrown your way, layer your leather and denim accordingly. A leather jacket will add just the right amount of chic factor to a jean ensemble on chillier days, but once the warmer weather hits, a sweet leather pencil skirt and denim topper will provide the perfect climate-friendly ensemble.
