Choosing The Right Color for a Leather Jacket Based on Your Skin Tone

If you read our last blog you know we have some sort of fascination with leather jackets this week, and maybe is because spring is finally here (or autumn if you are on the north side of the world) but, it's perfect for this awesome seasons. That's why we are going to tell you how to choose the right color for a leather jacket based on your skin tone. The essential aspect of the choice for a perfect leather jacket is picking the right shade, since it’s also quite important for accentuating the clothing combinations and matching your skin tone maximum perfectly. Going by the seasons, for summer we may suggest the cool tones. Spring looks for the bright and light options, as well as gray and brown leather jackets. As for winter, saturated darker tones may be suggested including blue, green, or red, black and dark brown tones. Coming to fall, all the shades that may characterize the fall leaves are recommended here encompassing brown, yellow, dark green, and cherry tones. Ok, so now you need to know if your skin tone falls into the category of warm, cool tones or neutral.

You are warm if:

  • Your hair color: Ranges from dark brown to dark blonde hair.
  • Your skin tone: Has a greenish or a yellowish (golden) undertone. Olive complexions also fall in the warm category.
  • Leather jackets to go colors in the warm color family: Oranges, reds, golden yellow, amber, honey gold.
  • Leather jackets to go colors in the cool color family: Warmer greens and blues, like olive, deeper turquoise, green moss, fern, pesto, red-purples (think: magenta and orchid shades).
  • Leather jackets to go colors in your neutrals: Taupe, hot chocolate, creamy whites, winter wheat, latte.
  • Colors that are tough for you: Icy shades, jeweled tones (amethyst, sapphire, ruby).

You are cool if:

  • Your hair color: It can range from very dark (blue black or very dark brown) to light blonde.
  • Your skin tone: Has a bluish undertone. It can also range from very fair to very dark.
  • Leather jackets to go colors in the cool color family: Bright blue, royal blue, sapphire, emerald, amethyst, deep purples, lavender, lilac snow.
  • Leather jackets to go colors in the warm color family: Shocking pick (versus hot pink, which is warm), cerise, ruby, bright rose.
  • Leather jackets to go colors in your neutrals: Gray, navy, pristine white.
  • Colors that are tough for you: Oranges and yellows.

You are neutral if:

  • Your hair color: Is a combination of colors—blonde with ashy streaks or brown with warmer tones.
  • Your eye color: Is hazel (most neutrals have hazel eyes, because it changes depending on what color they wear).
  • Your skin tone: Hard to determine—you can't tell if you're warm or cool.
  • Leather jackets to go colors: Neutral colors that fall in the middle of the color spectrum. Look for light peach, dusty pinks, soft rose, peony pink (blush-toned pinks look best for neutrals), placid blue, jade green, cameo green.
  • Colors that are tough for you: Anything too bright or vibrant that can overwhelm, reds and yellows (if you do a yellow, try a soft version, like cornsilk or buff).
  • Leather jackets to go in your neutrals: Taupes, grays, off-whites (like vanilla).
One more thing that you need to remember is that you shouldn’t pick a jacket that limits your movements even with a thick sweater. It should be free and comfortable with any garment. The sleeves should not go up when you lift your arms. If they do, then the jacket is small for you. Looking for the good quality is also important, so be careful when picking a jacket looking attentively on the seams, lining and all the rest details, also trying to find out the quality of the leather. In order to make a quick test you may drop a little bit of water on the surface watching what will happen. Pure leather should absorb the moisture and change the coloring while the faux leather options will not react to the drop anyway. In addition, you can also simply touch the surface and slightly rub it over. Pure leather will not get peeled off but should have scratches remaining on the surface. Finally authentic leather keeps you warmer and comfier and you may just keep your hand inside it for a few seconds. If you feel the warmth then it’s real leather.
