Hooded Leather Jacket
How leather jackets changed trends this Summer
It seems slightly counterintuitive. Summer months are the hottest time of the year, so who would want to wear a hooded leather jacket during these exponentially warm months? As it turns out, there are quite a few who deem hooded leather jackets as the trend for this summer, for a variety of reasons.
True, the summer months are warm and more prone to men and women alike sporting t-shirts, shorts, and flip flops, but adding a little flair never hurt. That is why hooded leather jackets have made a popular appearance in the leather jackets trends this summer. In fact, wearing hooded leather jackets may not be as counterintuitive as some may believe. This trend in leather jackets not only protects your body, and scalp, from the harsh rays of the summer sun, but it also allows you to make a fashionable statement.
Since leather jackets come in a variety of shapes and sizes, it is actually relatively simple to find a hooded leather jacket that will be bold and chic, without overheating you in the middle of a warm summer day. Now that we know just how harmful the sun’s rays can be on our skin, wearing a hooded leather jacket allows the wearer to walk boldly along the sidewalks, without worrying about whether or not they remembered sunscreen that morning.
Aside from the extra layer of protection, hooded leather jackets are the perfect trend to take one from the summer months directly into the fall. As it starts to cool off slightly, those with the lightweight hooded leather jacket will be able to continue wearing this fashionable and trendy garment without having to worry about what new coat they will wear until the winter weather arrives. As you can see, this trend is not just for the summer months, but can be used during any time of the year, both indoor and outdoors.
When looking for this hot new trend that has appeared during the summer months, you will want to consider a few things before purchasing a hooded leather jacket. First and foremost is just how heavy you want this jacket to be - a lightweight jacket will fit perfectly for an area which maintains an almost constant temperature, but will not last long in regions where the cold weather settles in quickly. On the flip side, purchasing a heavier hooded leather jacket will prevent its use during the summer months, and maybe even the fall and spring months depending on the region in which you live.
In addition to the weight of the hooded leather jacket fashion trend, you will also want to consider the design and color of the jacket. Wearing bright colors are perfect for some bold personalities, but out of place for others. Furthermore, consider the look of the hood on the leather jacket itself. Do you want the hood to be made of the same leather as the rest of the jacket? Or would you rather the hood be soft, more like a sweatshirt?
Lastly, and as always when purchasing a new product for your wardrobe, be sure to consider your price point and the fashion trend you wish to follow. Walking into a store to buy a hooded leather jacket without a plan in mind could lead to disaster.
