Accessories Report

Serious question, who doesn’t love leather? Leather has always been a key component of any autumn/winter wardrobe. It SCREAMS tough, sleek and rebellious. Not only has it made its mark on the streets but it also has been all over the catwalks in every imaginable form possible. From the little leather jacket to leather pants and dresses, there are so many ways to incorporate leather into your ensemble this fall.

More importantly, don’t forget about your accessories. A leather dress can sound a little overwhelming for some but that does not mean you should stray away from leather all together. You can always find leather in belts, bags, boots and, with cold weather approaching, even gloves!

I don’t know about you, but with the chilly weather finally approaching, I feel as though I am constantly drowning in coats trying to keep warm. This Fashionista is a perfect example of how to avoid that problem. Her beige leather jacket not only keeps her warm but keeps her warm in a fashionable way. Even in the midst of midterms, she proves that you can still be comfortable without looking like a total bum (remember, you perform the best when you feel the best!). She makes the most of leather’s versatility and rocks a very casual look. She also made sure to not leave the house without her leather boots. I especially love how her pretty nude leather accessories added edge without losing that feminine feel!

Leather is truly a timeless investment! If you are just itching for more leather, ASOS has a great selection with amazing prices for us college students. If you are looking for a more bold and edgy look, you have your choice from skirts to dresses, leggings to pants. Say you are a more conservative and subtle Fashionista, you are in luck as well! Choose from leather clutches and purses to boots and pumps. Whether it is day or night, leather can always be a staple item to your outfit!

When it comes to fall, three things are necessary for every Fashionista: layers, leather and lattes. Leather is everywhere so incorporate it into your wardrobe — it’s that easy. Remember, when it comes to leather, don’t overdo yourself. As I always say, less is always so much more!
