Trend Alert: Leather
Not sure if you’ve noticed but leather is everywhere lately. I even talked about it in our “Upcoming Fall Fashion Trends” post. But now things have gone crazy! Everyone is wearing leather in some form, whether it’s a statement piece, or a leather accent, it’s everywhere and we’re not mad about it. Well… actually we live in Florida so it’s not as easy to wear leather in 80 degree weather, but we make can it work. Especially because there is many leather alternatives out there that have the look of leather, minus the price tag and animal product and there are many ways to wear it.
I searched our favorite fashion blogs and found some examples on how you can pull off this new leather trend in any weather.
The next two looks are a great way to incorporate leather into your wardrobe, a knit dress with leather on the top adds the perfect accent to Arrow star Katie Cassidy’s outfit (below). It’s a great example for how us Florida girls can pull off leather without over-heating ourselves.
Kendi from Kendi Everyday shows us below how to wear the same-style leather dress during the daytime:
Some other example of ways to wear this trend are leather sleeves on a jacket or coat. This look is sleek and perfect for those of us that want to add a little edginess to our Winter coats.
And if all else fails go and find yourself a pair of fab leather pants and call it a day. The best thing about leather pants is that they can be dressed-up or dressed-down depending on your mood at the time.
How do you feel about this trend? What’s your favorite way to wear leather?
