There’s no rule stating that you can’t wear patterned designs with a solid-black leather jacket. On the contrary, patterns a great way to liven up your outfit by adding more flair to it. The key thing to remember is that you need to choose the right type of pattern. Plaid is usually a safe and effective choice to wear with a black leather jacket. It’s clean, simple and doesn’t clash with black leather. Certain floral patterns can also be worn with a black leather jacket.  When choosing a pattern, consider its colors and whether they flow cohesively with black.

This is because brown and black clash, and wearing them together in the same outfit will create an unflattering appearance.
