Owning a leather jacket means you are good to go! Leather jackets are an effortlessly cool addition to any wardrobe. People make clothes look cool but leather jacket makes people look cool. Though they have vastly different personal fashion taste, Kate Moss, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, all have one thing in common: they understand the styling power of an edgy leather jacket. Whether faux or real, these pieces are effortless, versatile, chic, and every other fashion-adjective. But before you make a style-regret grab the leather jacket that oozes out the starlet in you.

From leather trenches, popping leathers to belted silhouettes, here’s how you can heat-up the winter this year:
Shearling leather jacket
Although, you might feel a little ‘eskimoish’ you can be assured that you will be a stylish eskimo. Rock it like Blake Lively with a fedora hat, leather knee-high boots, or you can also get the oh-so chic look with a tough-girl tee, high-waisted mini and elegant ankle boots.
The Pantsuit trend
This pantsuit leather trend with the unexpected edge will take you from your office to a party! You can mix textures with a fitted leather blazer and loose-fit, satin-look trouser for the party look then simply button up for the office look the next day.

The leather trench
You don’t exactly have to look like Neo from the Matrix to look cool, but you can steal your own style other ways. Wear it with slim pants for an about-town ensemble or a belted one with pumps as a chic coat dress like Kate Moss and Neo now has a competition.
High shine leather look
An all-time favourite leather look of the Hollywood fashionistas, this high shine leather look is just what you need. You can play the It-Cool look like Cara Delevingne with a simple grey knit, distressed black skinnies and sneaks or be the girly girl next door with a bubblegum pink dress or go sexy with a slinky metallic foil slip dress like Jessica Alba.
Pop of colour
Leather don’t always have to be black or brown in colour. And that is why everyone loves leather. You can play around with pops of different leather hues and step into a different fashion zone. Steal the Kate Moss grey leather jacket look with a sparkly mini dress or go road-ready like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in a maroon leather, a swirl of grey woollen scarf with skinny jeans, an embellished belt and you are ready for the fashion-war.
