Essential Tips for Buying Plus Size Leather Jackets
- REAL VS. FAUX: This is really a personal judgment
call, so it depends on your ethics and how you feel about real leather. There
are plenty of fantastic synthetic options out there, so feel free to explore
all your options. It doesn't matter what kind you buy, but always buy the best
you can afford.
- KNOW YOUR STYLE: Have a style in mind before you
shop. If you're not into the whole biker-babe look, don't purchase a motorcycle
jacket covered in studs. Conversely, if you're not too conservative, a long
suede duster will just gather dust in your closet.
KNOW YOUR BODY TYPE: Look for the best jacket for
your silhouette. Busty girls should look for jackets with simple silhouettes
that zip without pulling. If you're very curvy, avoid bomber shapes or cropped
silhouettes to avoid looking bigger — go for a slightly longer jacket that will
show off your shape instead. Women with broad shoulders should make sure the
waistline nips in slightly so the jacket doesn't swallow your waist.
INSPECT FOR QUALITY: Just because the leather jacket is
expensive doesn't mean it's well made. Put the jacket through some stress
testing before swiping that credit card. Tug the seams, make sure any linings
are sewn in properly, look for the security of the stitching on zippers, and ensure
embellishments or buttons are securely fastened. One of my main criteria for leather is softness. Look
for softer leathers. Harder leather won't necessarily get much softer over time.
CONSIDER YOUR CLOSET: Leathers can work into
your wardrobe in a multitude of ways. Shorter, cropped styles can work with
pretty much any type of dress, from an evening gown to a sundress. Bomber types
are best for casual wear but can look rather runway-ready over a ball skirt for
the right occasion. Leather car coats are spectacular outerwear additions that
can upgrade any look. Take photos of some of your existing wardrobe favorites
with you and pair them with your intended purchase. The versatility might
If you can splurge on a second, TRY A COOL COLOR. I love the metallic leathers and rich burgundy tones!
- Use the best premium leather conditioner to soften and PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT. You can buy a top rated conditioner at Leatherhoney.com.
Always check the return policy to make sure that if
you're not loving your leather jacket that it can be safely returned to its original
home. After all, this is all about you and how your jacket will make make you feel and look.
