Plus Size Leather Jackets
Ever since James Dean’s swaggering leather-clad performance in “Rebel without a Cause,” the leather jacket has come to symbolize a certain edgy allure. It’s a hot rod you wear. Your black leather jacket needs to fit you like a glove for the look to be a real knock out. Plus size leather jackets combine the tailoring needed to fit your body type with the sensational styles to transform you into a chic, screen siren.
The classic leather jacket is the black leather jacket with collar you can pop for added mystique. For a more punk chic or biker glam style, choose a zippered jacket. A zipper that cuts diagonally across the body is a dynamic asymmetrical interpretation, with a slimming contour. Consider pairing this punk rock jacket with leather boots, a tee shirt and jeans for a throwback to good old New York in the retro years. For a more subtle look, pair it with black ballet flats and tights and a simple dress. The jacket will add just enough rock n’ roll to your wardrobe.
For a vintage-inspired bomber jacket, a style that channels the leather jackets’ history in aviation, choose a shearling trimmed collar. Leather bomber jackets are well paired with ankle boots and dark denim jeans for a look you can wear to lunch or during a jaunt in the city.
Plus size leather jackets can even be worn during the work week! Choose a long leather jacket that falls below the hips for a more sophisticated look. A belt that cinches the waist creates a flattering silhouette while simultaneously adding a formality to the coat. The choice of buttons over a zipper closure likewise subdues the jacket.
A brown or tan jacket is a softened alternative to the traditional black. Brown hued jackets work well paired with gentler materials like cashmere sweaters as well as floral patterns.
