Summer and spring bring more than just relief from cold and bone-chilling temperatures. Transitional clothing is available thanks to the warmer temperatures and beautiful flowers. Warm but not too heavy coats, light sweaters, and brighter bottoms and dresses are all good options. This isn’t just about pragmatics. This is the best time to incorporate spring’s most popular trends into your wardrobe. Layers are essential before you can live with floaty tops, airy linen and flouncy dresses. It’s the leather shirt that will give you texture and an edge to your look. This includes utility-inspired shackets, button-downs with voluminous sleeves, and faux-leather designs with minimalistic bents.

Leather shirts look great with jeans, slip dresses and fluid skirts, just like a classic leather jacket or cropped motorcycle. These shirts are light enough to be worn on warm days, with just a touch of briskness. They also make great styling pieces. You can wear a fitted silhouette in jeans to create a casually elegant look, or a more formal style with a shirt and jacket. Are you looking for a bolder style moment? You must try head-to-toe leather, no matter if you prefer looser fittings or more tailored silhouettes. This type of look is easy to pull off. Monochromatic colors are the best.

Tip: Many brands offer matching bottoms, making coordination easy.

You might be wrong to assume that leather jackets can only be worn during transitional period. They’re great for spring, but the newer fabrics are super soft and lightweight so they can be kept in your rotation during summer heat. Six leather shirts that we love: feminine, minimal, bright, neutral, fitted, or over-sized. You can also find styling tips to match each shirt.
