FEMININE LEATHER BY : LAILA KHAN - STYLESPECTOR
Most likely when somebody says leather the first thing that pops into your head is a studded black biker leather jacket with tons of zips and pockets. So when I say this don’t get me wrong I believe that a black biker leather jacket is a classic staple that EVERY woman or girl should should have in her wardrobe but ………..
This season designers , celebrities , and even people like us decided that we should up leathers versatility and that is exactly what happened. So now I know what your thinking ; ” If you think I am going to wear leather from head to toe you are crazy. ” But that’s the thing when a trend like this rolls around you DO NOT have to go overboard. Instead pick one or two key pieces that you think would go nicely in your wardrobe. Still not convinced ? I can promise you that this trend will stay around for awhile and since leather is so transitional you can still rock it during spring and summer. So what exactly is the trend ? Feminine Leather.
Here are some KEY PIECES to try out :
- Rich Burgundy Pleated Leather Dress :
This Fall and Winters key color that was in the spotlight everywhere was burgundy and other rich wine colors. So why not kill two trends with one stone and find yourself a dress like this. The shape of the dress is very forgiving and extremely flattering. Wear with a sophisticated pea coat ( yet another trend , that is also very timeless ) and the black and gold capped stilettos above ( black and gold is also very popular ) . Who knows this could be your to-go cocktail dress ? .
- Pleated Red Leather Shorts & Half Sleeved Red Leather Shirt :
A huge trend seen everywhere was RED. I personally find this the most wearable trend for fall and winter just because it is so versatile. Because winter has already come so soon pair the shorts with sheers or thick leggings for this is a look that Parisian girls adore and it adds extra warmth. I suggest wearing the top with contrasting colored denim in a shade like cobalt blue. The only rule of thumb ? Do not wear two red leather pieces together.
- Tulip Studded Black Leather Mini Skirt :
The black leather mini is ideal for those of you who want something feminine , edgy , trendy , and subtle all in ONE . And a plus point ? It has gold studs ! This skirt is the perfect transitional piece and can be worn during all the seasons and can be easily took from day to night. For a chic wintertime day look pair with some sheers or cotton corduroy leggings , some booties , the black tank , above and the red leather jacket above. So you see wearing leather from head to toe is not that difficult ! For work you can try the long maxi skirt alternative with stilettos and a airy chiffon blouse , make sure to add a trenchcoat.
- Black Leather Skinny Jeans :
I know , I know not everybody’s thing. But if your willing to give it a shot :) then pair with the short-sleeved red shirt above some wedges like the black desert TOMS , and the blue messenger above. This look is perfect for the citytroting , on the go chica whom is extremely fashionable.
- The Colorful Leather Jacket :
I love the blue leather jacket above ! This jacket under a loose tunic or tee and a pair of booties is perfect for the boho girl on the go .
So now that you have seen all that leather can do , what do you say ? The rule of thumb when shopping for leather is to make sure that it is never tight. You always want to shop a half-size up to prevent any skin tight creases.
