How To Style A Leather Blazer

Leather blazers combine the classic, refined look of a traditional blazer with the smooth texture and edgy vibe of leather. If you’re new to this style or looking for outfit inspiration, you’re in luck!

I’ve been experimenting with different leather blazer outfits and have gathered some of my favorite looks from my own wardrobe, as well as my wishlist, to give you the inside scoop on how to style a leather blazer.

Are leather blazers still in for 2024?

Yes! Leather blazers have been trending for a couple of years, and their popularity will continue to grow in 2024.

According to fashion insiders and trend reports, leather blazers are expected to be a huge trend going into 2024. Leather blazers – as well as other garments featuring this versatile material – were spotted all over Spring and Summer 2024 collections during Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks. In addition to runways, we’ve also seen celebs, like Jennifer Lawrence, sport this chic outerwear trend.

Leather Blazer Outfit Ideas

Get some fresh outfit inspo! Scroll on to see 14 examples of how to style a leather blazer for 2024 and beyond.

Off-white jeans + black boots.

In my experience, a leather (or faux leather) blazer can be styled in a chic and sophisticated way—just as you would style your go-to wool or plaid blazer. This is a lovely example of a leather blazer outfit perfect for crisp fall and winter days or as a transitional look come spring.  

The off-white barrel jeans and black bodysuit are a simple but polished combination that goes great with my leather blazer. I finished styling this look with a belt to cinch the waist and my Poppy Barley black booties for a fashionable touch.  

Camel blazer, black tee + sling-back heels.

There is something so elegant about a cream or camel-colored leather blazer. For this outfit, I’d let the camel blazer shine by styling it with the perfect black tee shirt and high-waisted jeans. 

If I were wearing this outfit to an event, dinner, or the office, I’d go for sleek mules or sling-back kitten heels that lean into the blazer’s elevated vibe. However, a pair of pointed-toe boots or sneakers would look equally as fab. Finish the look with gold jewelry and a chic shoulder bag.

White tee, jeans + heels.

get the look:

On warm fall and spring days, I love to style my faux leather blazer with jeans and a white tank. This combination is so simple that anyone can recreate it.

For this look, tuck your favorite white tee into the top of your jeans to define your waist and lengthen your legs. Any style of jeans will work here, but I prefer a straight-leg fit! When the weather is nice, I’ll reach for a pair of strappy heels that add a feminine contrast to the more masculine blazer.

Tonal chocolate browns.

get the look:

Who says your leather blazer needs to be black? I’m obsessed with this espresso-colored leather blazer from Frame. It has a more tailored shape compared to other relaxed styles, which is oh-so-elegant and perfect for subtly defining your waist. 

This leather blazer truly elevates the simplest of looks, like this white bodysuit and denim ensemble. Leaning into the tonal hues, I’d add a chocolate brown pouch bag, these affordable brown ballet flats, and tortoiseshell sunnies to bring it all together.

Denim midi skirt + slouchy boots.

get the look:

Denim is the perfect pairing for leather. Here, I’ve styled my fave leather blazer with a light-wash denim midi skirt and my tall leather boots. This look has a classic ‘90s vibe, so keep your top simple with a black knit, white tee, striped shirt, or graphic tee. 

This sleek ensemble can be styled for day, evening, or even a date night. Just add leather accessories and minimal gold jewelry before heading out the door. 

Graphic tee + denim.

get the look:

I can’t wait to replicate this black leather blazer outfit. It’s so simple, too. 

All you need for this off-duty ensemble is a chic pair of jeans (dark-wash denim works best for this look) and a logo or graphic tee (this Jil Sander tee is my fave) with the perfect oversized fit. For styling, black Samba sneakers, sleek sunglasses, and a crossbody bag are great options. 

I love the black and white tones in this outfit, but if color is your thing, go bold with vibrant sneakers or a playful printed tee.

Leather on leather.

get the look:

If you were hesitant about adding other leather garments to your leather blazer outfit, don’t be! 

Here, I’m wearing my leather blazer with coordinating leather trousers that have a relaxed fit. An embellished top brings dimension to this full-on leather look, while black booties and my Quince Leather Pouch tie it all together.  

Wear this on a night out or to a fancy dinner date in winter. No matter the occasion, this sexy and chic look is bound to turn heads!

Tank top, white jeans + strappy heels.

get the look:

A leather or faux leather blazer fits seamlessly within a minimalist’s wardrobe. Lean into the piece’s versatility by styling it with a simple top and jeans. For a casually chic look, I’d go for a black tank and off-white jeans in a tailored fit that balances the blazer’s oversized cut.

Next, slip on a strappy sandal with a subtle heel and finish with coordinating accessories. This look is perfect for dinner, girl’s night, or even the office!

Slip dress + knee-high boots.

get the look:

Adding a leather blazer is an easy way to bring your warm-weather dresses into fall and winter. Here, I’ve styled my black leather blazer with a mini slip dress, but you could recreate this look with satin skirts and longer slip dresses, too. I’ve also added tights and knee-high boots to keep my legs stylishly protected as temperatures dip.

For a spring and summer leather blazer outfit, swap the mini silhouette for a midi-length slip dress in a pastel hue. Add heeled sandals, loafers, or leather flip-flops to tie the look together.

Leggings, hoodie + sneakers.

get the look:

This sporty meets preppy look is equal parts comfortable and chic. On those days when you want to lounge in your leggings and hoodie (I totally get it), throw on a leather blazer and your outfit instantly feels more put-together. I love this as a model-off-duty inspired look when you’re heading to a coffee shop after pilates or want to look effortlessly cool while running errands.  

Finish the look with trendy yet comfy New Balances, and you’re ready for wherever the day takes you. A luxe hoodie, like my fave Anine Bing one, also helps give that athletic but elevated vibe. 

Plisse top + dark denim.

get the look:

Don’t be afraid to mix and match feminine and masculine pieces in your leather blazer outfits! I love the way this silk top and dark-wash denim automatically make this look feel dressier while the blazer adds that extra polish. On chillier days, swap the plisse blouse for a knit top or lightweight sweater.

I also love the idea of leaning into leather’s masculine and rebellious side through accessories. A studded bag brings interest and a touch of grunge to pull in the leather blazer and Western-style booties. 

Sweater dress, tights + tall boots.

get the look:

Not sure how to style a leather blazer for fall and winter? Try this ultra-chic look. 

All you need is a mini sweater dress in a flattering ribbed material. Next, add some tights and tall boots to keep your legs warm—if you’re in a milder climate, you can recreate this look without the tights! Throw on a brown (or black) leather blazer to bring the whole look together. For final touches, style with a crossbody bag and your everyday jewelry. 

I can totally see this outfit worn while you explore a fashionable city, as a chic museum date look, or for dinner and drinks with friends. 

Button-up, vintage jeans + sneakers.

get the look:

This is another of my favorite casual yet chic black leather blazer outfits. 

You can’t go wrong with an oversized shirt and vintage jeans combination, in my opinion. A leather blazer is a chicer alternative to a moto jacket, giving this outfit a more refined feel while keeping the edgy, cool-girl quality. Go for trend-forward sneakers and voila—you have the perfect everyday look.

Button-down shirt, mini skirt + knee-high boots.

get the look:

For styling your leather blazer, consider pairing it with a classic button-down shirt and a low-rise mini skirt. Sleek knee-high boots and a woven shoulder bag complete the look. If needed, add tights for an extra warm layer! 

This look is giving ‘90s vibes, and I’m so here for it. Wear this on date night or a night out with friends when you want to feel fun yet polished.
