100 WAYS TO STYLE YOUR KAY MICHAELS.
The legendary Kay Michaels. The iconic leather jacket for men and women that has become our world famous BODA SKINS style. Worn by bikers, athletes, teachers, accountants and astronauts alike, we’re often asked how and why this one leather has become the one everybody wants. Depending on which member of the team you ask here at BODA HQ, you’ll most likely get a different answer.
The quality of leather and metal, the effortless detailing and personal touches, the unique linings and colours available, the price, well...you get the point. But there is one thing that stands out to us all when we talk about the Kay Michaels. It’s versatility.
It’s almost impossible to get it wrong when you’ve got a Kay Michaels in your wardrobe, but just to be on the safe side we've put together some of our favourite Kay Michaels looks for you to try.
LAYERS FOR DAYS
We’re going to start with one of the classics, the one we see so many of you adopt on a weekly basis all over the world. Layering. Over the years we’ve seen a lot of variations on this. A simple hoodie/sweater + leather collaboration is a match made in heaven.
The hoodie has become as much a staple as a leather jacket these days, and no matter the colour or fit, if you’re ever at a loose end when it comes to styling your Kay Michaels this is your go to.
WHEN SMART MEETS CASUAL
Who said a leather jacket was just for throwing on when you're taking the Harley out for a Sunday spin? Pairing your Kay Michaels with a shirt and pullover is a great way to give your day-to-day working attire some much needed attitude.
Alternatively, why not try it with a classic oversized flannel shirt and t-shirt combo for an effortless rock and roll look.
KEEPING IT SIMPLE
Okay, we get it. You’ve classic taste. Less is more, right?
For all your minimalists, let’s keep this real simple shall we. Throw on your favorite white or black t-shirt (oversized or fitted we don’t mind), grab your leather and we’ll see you at the bar in 10. Done.
Our new BODA SKINS 220 tees work perfectly for achieving this look
BLACK ON BLACK
Looking for an excuse to wear all black everything? Let us save you some time here. You don’t need one. Can you look any cooler in your Kay Michaels than when you’re in a pair of black boots, black jeans and a black t-shirt? We think not.
It’s classy, timeless, slimming, effortless, simple, sophisticated…we’re running out of supervities here. If you’re EVER in doubt, wear black.
One of the most recent trends we’re starting to see more and more of is what we like to call the ‘Work From Home’ look. Let’s face it, sometimes all you want to do is stay away from as many people as possible, order a pizza and lounge around in your, well… loungewear. What, just us?
There's something liberating about wearing your comfiest clothes under your leather. It’s the perfect hybrid of making an effort/showing you’ve made little to none at the same time. Our tip to making this look work is make sure your footwear game is strong. We suggest a pair of fresh white trainers or black military boots.
BLOCKING OUT THOSE HATERS
This one always makes us smile at BODA HQ - because we’ve all done it at some point in our lives. Because...well, we can. Wear a pair of sunglasses.
We don’t know what it is, but there is just something special about wearing a pair of sunglasses and a leather jacket together. If you’ve done it before you know the feeling. It doesn’t matter if you’re in Australia or Alaska wearing a pair of shades with your Kay Michaels is always a good idea.
A leather isn’t just for ¾ of the year you know. Our Kay Michaels is just as effective in cooler climates too...with a little help from a few staple accessories. Some of our favourite looks we see at BODA HQ is in the Winter month when we see people wearing their leather with a baseball cap, beanie, scarf or gloves. It’s a great way to keep looking stylish whilst you’re out on those Winter adventures.
