Leather Vests for Men
3 great looks for leather vests for men
There was once a time when vests were only worn as part of a suit. Today, these stylish all-rounders no longer need dress pants or a nice jacket to make an appearance! Leather vests have become a special favorite in men’s fashion. From rough n’ tough biker styles to traditional suede designs and cool vintage looks, we’ll show you three killer combinations with leather vests for men:
1. Rock n’ Roll Combo
Studded black leather vests are the rock n’ roll star of men’s fashion. All you need to complete the look is a white t-shirt or sweatshirt, jeans, and black boots. Skinny jeans make for an especially modern combination option and can be worn in many different styles and colors. Why not try out a gray or black pair with holes or a unique wash, for example? That is, assuming you’re not planning on spending the day at the office. Black leather bracelets and hats are perfect accessories for this bad-boy look. Men looking to make a statement can even opt for a bowler or top hat!
2. Traditional Combo
Traditional leather vests for men aren’t only for Oktoberfest! Lederhosen, checkered shirts, and Bavaria’s traditional costume shoes are the usual suspects you’ll see combined with a leather vest at the world’s biggest beer festival in Munich. If you’re not at Oktoberfest, it’s best to steer clear of checkered shirts when sporting your vest to avoid an unwanted cowboy or Alpine look. It such a case, it’s best to stick to simple shirts with modern cuts and dress pants or dark-wash jeans. Loafers or lace-up leather shoes and a thin leather belt complete this classic look.
3. Vintage Combo
Vintage leather vests with lambskin or a fringe are perfect for house parties or walking around campus. While ladies are free to transform themselves into laid-back hippies with bright and bold flower power accessories, men should keep their combination choices a bit more reserved. A simple shirt in summer or sweater in winter combined with drainpipe pants and lace-up leather shoes is the way to go. Slender guys can also opt for a pair of skinny jeans, which they’ll want to wear rolled up and tucked into a pair of black boots.
Men can use leather vests to make a statement. Printed T’s and studded bracelets underscore the rocker look, while checkered shirts and knee socks lend the traditional style even more Alpine flair. Linen shirts and colorful friendship bracelets give the vintage look a chic bohemian edge.
