Black is the most trusted color in any girl’s wardrobe—your little black dress, your black pumps and your perfect pair of black skinny jeans. Black is there for every occasion and every season. It’s classic, chic, sexy and is the perfect companion for bright lipstick. This fall, update your basic black pieces with leather (faux of course) for some edgy appeal.
It’s not just leather jackets making a statement this season; we’re talking leather pants, skirts, shorts and dresses. Leather is usually synonymous with either has-been rock stars or Halle Berry rocking her cat woman costume. Don’t fret though, Fashionistas, leather has taken on a sophisticated appeal and with a little help you’ll have no problem with this fall trend. This week’s Fashionista styled her faux leather shorts with a black graphic blouse and a beautiful black, fringed shawl. She finished the look with her neutral Litas and brown oversized bag. Her leather shorts break up the all-black ensemble just enough to make her look chic and vivacious.
Incorporating leather into your fall wardrobe is all about simplicity: one leather piece at a time. For a look like this week’s Fashionista, pair these Topshop faux leather shorts with a black oversized T-shirt and this black drape jacket. For an every day look, style these black leather skinnies with a black and white striped shirt. Finish the look with some black flats, and swap ‘em out for some pumps in the evening! A little hesitant to go all-out with the leather trend? Start out with some leather accented pieces, like these leggings with faux leather side panels.
