Leather Blazer

Genuine or faux leather is known to be one of the greatest trends of all time no matter what decade we are in. Many people are not sure how to dress up a leather blazer, one of the most popular leather styles to date, even if carrying a leather bag and donning leather pants are obvious possibilities, although some people would call too much leather unappealing.

Unsurprisingly, the ease with which you can incorporate them into your existing look is a major factor in their popularity. Given the range of colors and styles offered, there is also bound to be a leather blazer that makes you feel more like a badass version of yourself than a rocker who aspires to be famous.

What To Pair with a Leather Blazer

In this section we will discuss the various outfits you can make up from your leather blazer. Let’s start!

1. White and Black Wardrobe Essentials

If you like the way a casual ensemble appears, start by simply combining black leather with other black or white wardrobe staples. These can be pants, boots, sweaters, or T-shirts.

You can’t go wrong with black and white clothes, especially if you want to add something creative to your work clothes. As we remind most readers, formal clothes don’t need to be boring at all.

Have you tried ditching the usual blazer or coat from your suit and putting on a blazer? Adding accessories like rings, watches and if you really want to look like a Casanova, throwing a rose up in the pocket to charm your – often potential – beloved with?

The bag you carry can also make a difference. Try cross body bags, or those cool leather laptop briefs. We’ve seen men match their leather blazer to their MacBook’s cover, which is why we still have hopes in fashion and those who carry it forward!

2. Turtleneck and Straight-Legged Jeans

For dressier and more formal occasions where ripped jeans are not suitable, try this timeless outfit. You can dress things up with a sleek, slim-fitting cream or grey turtleneck and structured straight-leg trousers in a non-distressed whitewash.

Get the edgy clothing look by adding a pair of black shiny shoes for a touch of glitz and possibly a pocket square. You can also wear neutral-colored cufflinks to tie in the whole look nicely.

But if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands, just go for any turtleneck, dark pants, dark shoes, and a blazer. Add a simple chain and watch to bring it all together!

3. Faux Leather Blazer in Tan

Faux leather can be obtained in more natural colors and finishes that closely resemble genuine leather, but it is most frequently found in black, vivid colors, or intriguing finishes. Tan faux leather blazers are a great option for men who want an authentic leather-like look but don’t want to use animal goods or want the look on a budget.

This outfit is also unique as not many people own such beautiful clothing pieces. You can pair such a blazer with cream pants and white sneaks for a classy and stylish look.

Additionally, you can add a brown shirt under the blazer as all the warm and earthy tones blend well with each other. Another interesting option is something coral, that leans more into the brown hue than the pink.

4. Sweatshirt and Jeans

Embrace simplicity. Put on a pair of black or gray slim-fitting jeans and either a white or black t-shirt with a logo or some graphics to break up the monotony. You could also layer a zip-through sweatshirt underneath your leather blazer to truly make this appear sporty and chic.

You can wear this outfit when going to a casual dinner with friends and family. It will keep you warm, comfortable, and always looking stylish.

5. Brown Leather Blazer and Gray Pants

9. Ripped Jeans and Sneakers with Leather Blazer

Black ripped jeans and high-top shoes like Dr. Martens look great with a leather blazer. For a more street-style appearance, you could even put on a pair of skate shoes.

You might use a band t-shirt or a black plain t-shirt as the top. Just bear in mind that the leather blazer always looks best when worn with darker hues to maintain the grunge/rocker aesthetic.

10. Leather Blazer and Leather Pants

Just like denim on denim is a trendy look, leather on leather is also a fashion statement that is best for dressier, fancy occasions. You can either opt for a fitted leather blazer with form-fitting pants or an oversized blazer with baggy, straight-fit pants.

Brown and cream are colors that seamlessly blend together, and you can pair a brown leather blazer with cream-colored or white pants. The earthy and warm tones complement each other well.
