Wize Style Wednesday | How to a Wear Patent Leather Jacket


Do you think P. Diddy when you see a shiny patent leather jacket? It’s ok, (even though I was fond of the shiny suits) patent leather isn’t as intimidating as you think. Patent leather is going to be everywhere for the fall/winter season. I’m sure a shiny jacket was not on you fall wardrobe wish list but I have few styling tips that will take you from nay to yay!

I know hanging on the rack patent can look like a fabric that is screaming for the wrong attention but it’s actually a great way to work texture into your wardrobe.


Here are my tips for shining in patent leather without going overboard:

  • a patent leather jacket is a classicly cool piece for your wardrobe. Look for a jacket with a classic silhouette like a moto jacket or a trench.
  • Allow the patent leather to be the accent to your casual look. I styled my patent leather mac (find it here) with skinny jeans (found here) and a striped sweater. The shine adds texture to the stripes of my ribbed sweater.
  • Keep this look ultra chic by going monochromatic with a pop of metallic or animal print. All black everything!


Patent leather is classicly cool. I mean, come on, hello, Cat Woman!


How would you style my jacket? Would you take the risk of shiny patent leather?
