How to Style a Cropped Cream Leather Jacket

by Sara Cantu

A stylish leather jacket is a quick and simple way to add instant edge to a basic ensemble. The versatile piece will not only pack a major style punch, but it will prove an indispensable part of your wardrobe for multiple seasons. Style a cream leather jacket with a variety of chic pieces for outfits to suit multiple occasions.

Neutrals

Neutral separates work fabulously with other neutrals, meaning a cropped cream jacket will mesh well with these styles. Pair a cream jacket with a tan blouse, light-colored jeans and brown riding boots for a casual daytime outfit. For a night out on the town, go for a gold sequined tank top with your cropped cream jacket, and add a pair of simple pumps to seal the deal. A lovely statement necklace serves as the cherry on top of these stylish ensembles.

Jewel Tones

Choose sleek pieces in luxe jewel tones for a lovely contrast to your cream leather jacket. A chiffon blouse or silk camisole in deep, rich shades will provide a stunning backdrop that creates color contrast with the cream jacket. For bottoms, dark jeans or printed denim provide an added dose of pizazz. Neutral accessories are a perfect complement to these types of elegant ensembles.

Dresses

When wearing your cropped cream jacket for nighttime events, dresses make an appropriate and stylish pairing. Light and airy dresses are favored for spring and summer time. You can swap out for a fitted black or navy dress to make the ensemble appropriate for fall and winter. Incredibly polished and sophisticated, this outfit will work just as well for dinner as it will for drinks and dancing. Single-strap, high-heeled sandals will prove a gorgeous addition to this outfit.

Accessories

Accessories are a wonderful way to take a cropped leather jacket to new style heights. Pair yours with a black V-neck T-shirt and a chunky gold necklace for a cool, edgy look. A colorful stone necklace will pair gorgeously as well. For daytime, rock a cropped leather jacket with gold aviator shades and a slicked-back pony tail for a look sure to impress.
