Two Ways to Wear a Durango Leather Jacket in the Winter

Durango Leather Jacket

The best thing about cold weather in the winter? Sledding, hot cocoa, and the adorable jackets that come out of the woodwork! I was impossibly excited to team up with Durango Leather Company this winter, and just in time for the snow to hit Boston. I chose to brave the snowflakes in this absolutely gorgeous Demi Monde Jacket!

Below I've outlined two ways I wear this versatile leather piece. The first outfit is a more formal, dressy look that I would wear out on a date or a special occasion.

What initially drew me to this jacket were it's details. This is the first leather jacket I've come across that really translates to winter trends - its white color and studs are reminiscent of twinkling snowflakes and glistening icicles! 

I paired it with a sleek, festive, red winter dress and some fabulous camel boots from Target. The leather itself is incredibly soft & supple. As soon as I put it on, I instantly felt so trendy, fancy and ready to hit the town! To me, that's the test of a good piece of clothing: It should inspire and energize you, and this jacket definitely does that!

My second look is more of an edgy, casual-chic outfit. I would wear this one out to brunch with friends, a trivia night, a concert, or even running some errands on the weekend.

For this look, I paired the jacket with my new favorite Game of Thrones tshirt (you may remember I'm currently reading the series, whooo!), my plaid Gap scarf, dark skinny jeans, and the same camel heels from Target.

I also appreciate the edgy, unique design of Durango leather jackets. The off-center zipper and side buckles on this one are details that make all the difference and really make it stand out from other jackets.

I seriously love how versatile this jacket is- isn't it crazy how easily it transitions from a dressy look to a casual one? I felt equally comfortable in both looks, which says a lot considering how different they are!

  5. Lovely jacket! Looks great against the red dress. Love the scarf too. Nice and bright for gloomy January! I think I would pair it with black jeans and stripy b&w top.

  8. I love looks and I personally would have gone with the second look myself. I could try wearing the first look but with a 9 months old, that probably wouldn't be practical. LOL! And how do you managed to stay so darn slim while eating all the delicious food?! Super envious here. Haha!

  32. Leather jackets are my absolute favorite-- they're seriously perfect for almost any occasion. I love the unexpected look of the jacket paired with an evening dress in your photo above. Will have to do that!

  33. I love your formal look, you are rocking that jacket and you look absolutely gorgeous! (: I love leather jackets but I've never thought about getting one in this color. I might try it out though as it is a neutral. (: I prefer to pair my leather jackets with a hoodie underneath w/jeans and converse for a everyday college look, but they're not super fancy like this one, haha. I like the ones with the fabric sleeves and the leather body. Idk if that makes any sense....I'm gonna stop babbling now and just say once again how awesome you look! :D

    Lots of Love,
