I was flipping through a colossal issue of Vogue and could not help but notice one trend continuously popping up, leather. Leather can be a little daunting at first because it brings to mind motorcycles and biker gangs but in reality it is one of the most versatile fabrics and looks great with almost every outfit. Leather also wears really well so it lasts a lifetime! This is the season to ween leather into your wardrobe!

How To: Combining multiple leather pieces is a great way to put together a killer outfit. It is important to invest in classic leather pieces like a leather jacket, leather boots and a leather bag. This season leather detailing on collars and hems is very popular and is a great way to incorporate a touch of leather into any outfit. Since leather goes with basically any other fabric, this freedom is up to you. It is fun to mix and match different colors of leather to make your outfit not too monochromatic.
