The bright colors and the excess studs, glitter and fringes you can also include them in this mix.
At 30: Divine half
I already feel closer to this step so, for me, it is the best (modesty aside). But it is that perfect medium in which perhaps you no longer dare for some very extravagant and more youthful designs, and you are already signing up for more classic styles, but with a twist that make them more interesting and just as striking, at 30. A lifelong biker jacket, in different colors, such as red, brown or camel; too playing with textures, where suede can be the protagonist. Or a design like this of the perfect medium (see the relationship?) Of Versace, which is based on that more timeless silhouette, but with some details that make it different and very attractive.

At 50+: minimalist

As well as not so large flaps and full closure. Another recommendation for women 50 years or older, would change the classic black color in your jacket, for a dark green, navy blue, burgundy, brown or camel. Black can be harsh on a mature woman, exaggerating facial shadows and dreaded wrinkles, so come this age better stay away from black in your leather jacket. Always combine your jacket with more elegant looks, to elevate them, and better not look to appear a more youthful style that may not result in the best outfit for you.
