Yesterday I posted a few of my favorite leather skirts that recently hit stores to get me more excited for one of the hottest trends to show up this fall – leather! Today I’ll be showing you three ways to wear the trend: business casual, daytime, and evening.
This time around, designers have found a new way to wear leather by pairing the fabric with feminine tops instead of the common edgy-biker-chic twists. Combining leather with delicate pieces like sheer heather-gray button-ups and sweatshirt-like sweaters tones down the hardness but still gives you that spice leather instantly shows off. Of course, do feel free to still sport the look by looking for pieces with hard and edgy twists like pyramid studs, rhinestones, buckle straps, and other embellishments.
I can’t wait to wear leather this fall during the day, since designers have given us the fabric in shades other than black! If leather isn’t your thing to begin with, then these looks are pretty much perfect for you considering ultra toned down hues. Ponchos are also a huge trend to be seen this fall, and pairing a cozy one with taupe leather leggings is the absolute comfort ensemble. For a more feminine take, pair a delicate lace top with a rusty, red, crinkle leather skirt and thigh-high socks. Finish off the look with leather gloves with bow details and nude oxfords!
Most people tend to wear leather at night due its seductive and sexy vibe, and it’s pretty easy to just slip on a leather dress and go! There are definitely other methods aside from wearing the common leather dress: pair a fitted leather skirt with a lace top and a chic crop blazer with silk detailing or for a edged up glam look, wear your favorite bedazzled sequin dress underneath a crop leather drape vest. Keep your accessories minimal and your shoes clean-cut!
Remember, you can always find leather detailing if wearing a full leather piece isn’t your thing – look for basic cotton tees or skirts with leather trimming, or add a leather belt to your favorite fall/winter coat and voila! Definitely do also swap your colorful metal cuffs and bangles for tough leather straps to dawn your arm!
