What is a Leather Blazer?
A blazer is a type of jacket that looks a lot like a suit jacket, but just more casual. So leather blazers are kind of like leather suit jackets but just a lot more casual and informal. The lapels are less structured and there usually isn’t padding in the leather blazers that are trendy right now. A lot of blazers have buttons down the front, though nowadays it’s very common for them not to have any buttons and be flowy and open.
If you want to wear a leather blazer in the most popular way for 2020, don’t button your blazer, but have it open instead. It looks really cool and very model off-duty.
Why are Leather Blazers So Popular in 2020?
Leather blazers are majorly trending in 2020 but why? What makes leather blazers so much more special than all other jackets and coats and blazers this year?
For one, leather is on the rise this Fall so anything leather is already going to be trending. But the main reason that leather blazers are the ‘IT’ item this year this is because Y2K (early 2000’s) style is back and these blazers fit the Y2K aesthetic PERFECTLY.
Plus, leather jackets are starting to get old and boring and this take on your usual leather jacket is different, fun, and trendy while still being a classic.
All the big Instagram fashion influencers and celebrities have been rocking these leather blazers and they are now one of the hottest pieces you need in your Fall wardrobe. Celebrities like the Kardashians and Jenners love leather blazers. Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin have also been seen rocking them.
So, if you’re looking for the hottest, coolest jacket to get this Fall, you NEED a leather blazer.
What Color Leather Blazer Should You Buy?
The standard color for a leather blazer is black – it’s versatile, stylish, and will never go out of style. Black leather blazers are also the easiest to find so you can usually find a lot of affordable options for them.
Black leather blazers are also so chic. I have never seen a black leather blazer styled badly because they always, ALWAYS look great. Plus, they’re so versatile.
You can wear a black leather blazer with a skirt and knee high boots, or with jeans, or even with sweatpants. My favorite way to style a black leather blazer is with a skirt and boots or school-girl chunky loafers.
BROWN BROWN BROWN. Brown is the hottest color of the season, and so are brown leather blazers! These caramel, delicious blazers are so rich and stunning, my mouths watering as I type this!
Caramel and brown leather blazers are the perfect Fall accessory because they’re warm, cozy, and oh so stylish.
Plus, a brown blazer is the color wave to go with if you want to be extra trendy and stylish in 2020.
Brown vs. Black
If you’re trying to decide between a brown and black leather blazer, here’s what you need to consider.
Do you want something classic and timeless or something trendy? Is this your first leather blazer?
If you want something classic, then black is the color for you! But if you want something trendy and really popular in 2020, then you should opt for brown! Brown is this years ‘IT’ color and a brown leather blazer will definitely step up your Instagram fashion game lol!
BUT, if you’re looking to buy your first leather blazer, then I would recommend a black one because they’re so much more versatile and go with absolutely everything. With black being such a timeless color, if you like your black leather blazer and see yourself wearing it all the time, then you can get a brown one. Because even though brown leather blazers are super trendy right now, they will continue to be super popular for the next few years, too.
