What’s the difference between a jacket and a leather bracelet? Not much – except that you can wear your leather bracelet with more than just one type of jacket! From bomber jackets to field jackets, leather bracelets are an essential part of any man’s fall wardrobe, but they tend to be overlooked by many men who have never paired their bracelets with their jackets. To ensure that your jackets and leather bracelets look great together, use this guide on the top 7 ways to style your leather bracelets and jackets this fall season!
1) Pick your sports jacket
A sports jacket is a great way to add a casual edge to your outfit. It’s important that you pick the right one for your body type. Stay away from too-tight or too-big jackets, as these can make you look sloppy or frumpy. Be sure to get it tailored so it fits well in all the right places! It’s also worth investing in leather bracelets if you haven’t already – they’re trendy, yet practical! You can wear them with any outfit and they instantly give off an edgy vibe. If wearing them with a dress shirt, tie and dress pants – use two at most; with jeans – try one on each wrist; with shorts – wear just one bracelet on the left arm (a wristwatch should be worn on the right arm).
2) Match your pants, not your shoes
For example, if you’re wearing brown pants, it’s better to wear brown shoes. If you’re wearing navy blue pants, then it’s better to wear navy blue shoes. Mixing colors is okay too! It just depends on the shade of your pants. The same goes for matching your belt with your shoes. When in doubt, go with black. Black shoes are a safe option, but they don’t always have to be a solid color either. There are lots of different types of black shoe styles: oxfords, loafers, combat boots, sneakers- they all work well with any type of outfit! To keep it casual and sporty look no further than a nice pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Sneakers.
3) Coordinate, don’t match
If you’re looking for a way to put together an outfit that is both stylish and timeless, here are a few simple tips. Coordinate, don’t match: Mixing colors or patterns can be a bold move that most men won’t make on their own, but if you want your ensemble to stand out from the rest then this is an easy way to do it. Start by picking one color (we like blue) as the primary color of your outfit. From there, mix in complementary shades of green and purple to add variety without being too loud. For example, wear a navy blazer with green pants and a purple shirt or vice versa! Adding a different texture will also give your look some dimension. Try pairing dress slacks with a silk polo shirt and leather bracelet to stay trendy while staying sharp.
4) Pair carefully with other accessories
- When wearing a leather bracelet, it is best to match the color of the bracelet with the color of your watch strap or belt.
- A good rule of thumb when pairing leather bracelets with other accessories is that if you’re wearing a gold watch, then you should wear a yellow or light brown leather bracelet.
- If you are wearing a silver watch, then opt for a dark brown leather bracelet.
- Wearing a white leather bracelet? Match it with either black, grey, or blue items in order to keep your outfit looking chic and modern.
- Keeping track of how much skin you show off can be challenging during the fall season because many articles of clothing come in lighter colors such as pastels or neutrals. If this is an issue for you, try tucking in some shirts so they’re not showing too much skin while still staying fashionable!
5) Go beyond black and brown
For those of you who are looking for something a little different than the usual black or brown jackets, think about trying out a dark navy or forest green. These colors will help create an edgier look that is perfect for the fall season. Pair your new jacket with some nice jeans and some leather bracelets, plus a scarf if you want. It’s all about having fun with it! There are so many great options when it comes to styling jackets this fall, so don’t be afraid to try something new. Mix up your clothing color schemes this season by adding in some deep hues like purple and burgundy, as well as military greens, army grays, and khaki tones.
6) Mix textures in your fall looks
Mixing textures in your fall looks is a great way to add interest to your outfit. Try layering a leather bracelet or two with a wool coat, for example. If you’re feeling brave, mix a knit scarf with an oxford button-down shirt and some slacks! One of my favorite combos this season is mixing a denim jacket with chunky boots and a puffer vest, for something that’s stylish but still feels cozy.
7) Layer over jeans/pants with ease
The fall season is all about layering, so it’s important to find a jacket that you love. Though there are many types of jackets, leather jackets offer the perfect combination of style, warmth, and durability. Not only do they look good with almost any outfit, but they will keep you warm on those chilly fall nights when you want to go out for a drink or two with friends. Plus, a leather jacket never goes out of style!
