For the Love of Leather

Monday, August 24, 2015

Leather is not just having a moment. It has found a way to cross over style lines and transcend seasons proving its hear to stay. When I think of 70's, 80's, and 90's leather, I think of rock & roll and biker gangs (actually I really think of Can't Buy Me Love and Cindy Mancini's to die for white suede fringe jacket…). In this decade however, there has been an incredible transition to a preppier, sportier, classic genre. And.It.Works.

As with any trend it's great to focus on one piece so as not to over do it (please, no full-on leather outfits). Also, don't forget that there are different types of leather you can work with (yes, suede is a type of leather). A few of my favorite pieces are below. Some of the top contenders are the leather driving gloves, the high waisted leather shorts, the leather brimmed baseball cap, and a great shearling jacket is at the top of my Fall wish list for the upcoming season. I also own those Paige leather leggings and they are amazing (leather on the front knit leggings on the back). 

How do you wear your leather?
