Lightweight leather jackets are a simple versatile piece of clothing that adds an edgy and sexy quality to any outfit. A trend this fall that has captured my eye is that leather’s not only being used on jackets and pants but skirts and shorts. A leather skirt has been paired with a simple T-shirt, giving off a chic but casual look. This Fashionista did exactly that. She spiced up her simple look of a black tank top, black leggings and converse with a light leather jacket to create a look that is not only sporty but also sexy.

College Fashionista: What is your favorite upcoming trend this fall?
Cassie Altenberger: Is it too early to say fur coats? Obviously faux of course, NASTY GAL has already added some to their fall collection and I can’t help but get excited for the cold weather. Obviously leather anything is in right now. I want a pair of leather shorts paired with heels for the perfect nighttime outfit.
