Leather jackets are a great transition piece for the springtime and also the perfect complement to jazz up your favorite game-day shirt! Because a leather jacket should be an investment piece, you'll want to make sure it's a perfect fit. As a result, I suggest you try on a handful of options to get a good feel for what looks and feels best on you! To get you started, here are a few tips and recommendations to help you find the right fit and style for your body type:
HOURGLASS: Cuts that are seamed in at the smallest part of your waist.
Natalie's Picks: VEDA Nova Suede; Akris Punto Leather Stand-Collar
TRIANGLE: Tailored jackets with shoulder details, like epaulets, and/or strong lapels to balance out your hips.
Natalie's Picks: IRO Ashville; Ralph Lauren Alton
INVERTED TRIANGLE: Smaller lapels and minimal shoulder details if you don't want to emphasize strong shoulders.
Natalie's Picks: REISS Serge; Doma Bruce
RECTANGLE: Boyfriend, boxy, or straighter styles that are less tailored.
Natalie's Picks: VEDA Jayne; BB Dakota Leydon
OVAL: Longer straight styles with vertical detailing. Minimal details (horizontal pockets, zippers, etc.) at the tummy.
Natalie's Picks: SET Tyler; Mackage Cleo
