Accessories Report

For a long time, leather was only considered appropriate on purses, shoes and wallets. If anyone thought of leather garments, Catwoman and hot pants came to mind vividly. But that was then, and this is now. Nowadays leather is the hottest trend of the winter season, popping up on every type of clothing item available. Leather offers a refined yet edgy feel to any outfit, and this Fashionista showcases the trend perfectly.

This Fashionista’s outfit is perfect for shopping on a chilly day. She's the queen of leather with her black leather patch leggings, a cobalt blue sweater dress and a gray pea coat topped off with a black circle scarf, combat boots and a camel tote with leather accents. This is an overall casual way to incorporate leather into an outfit. If you want to dress up your leather a little more, the possibilities are endless.

If you're head over heels in love with leather, go for an all-over look with a dress like this. For a more understated look, bring the leather in through a fierce pair of booties like these. If you're a leather newbie, try an accessory with just a hint of edge like this forest green bag with patent leather trim. Day or night, casual or professional, leather is the perfect trend for any occasion.

When you feel like your wardrobe needs a dose of fierce attitude, consider adding some leather into the mix. It’ll take your look from girl-next-door to girl-on-the-runway.
