Leather and Color Can Coexist!
Despite what you’ve heard, it’s not a fashion faux pas to mix your 70s mens leather jacket with a bit of color. John is rocking a 70s wide lapel brown leather jacket with a multicoloured 70s shirt, topping off the look with blue Levi’s 501 jeans and black leather ankle boots. The colorful 70s undershirt is a perfect match for his brown leather jacket. After all, the 70s were all about color and individuality. Feeling floral? Go for it! Flower prints were all the rage at the time. Lastly, John’s simple blue jeans and black boots give the look the rock flare that it needs to stay relevant and edgy.
Keep It Loose
Whatever shirt you decide to wear with your leather jacket, try not to pick thicker material like sweaters to wear underneath that will make the look bulkier and make you feel uncomfortable. Leather can be quite tight, so keep it loose and comfortable underneath.
