A month into my stay, I have found my signature places in London. It is always a blessing when you find your favorite spot to people-watch, while enjoying a cup of tea. My sanctuary for style hunting in Exmouth Market is ideal because when noon rolls around, it’s lunch break and Fashionistas are everywhere!
Of the many trends evolving throughout London, I would say leather has come the farthest in street style. Leather is sweeping through fashion and adorning all different types of clothing. It is gracing the collars of trench coats, sleeves of shirts and lining edges of trim, in addition to its regular appearances on shoes and purses. Typically, leather can have a traditional biker feel, only making appearances when you’re feeling extra sassy on a night out. Yet, London’s Fashionistas have been wearing leather in their everyday style. This Fashionista incorporated leather (colored leather, actually) into her outfit. This leather fashion statement shows no sign of stopping, as it is prevalent this spring 2013, as well as leading into fall.
These glossy red leather leggings were an eye-catching addition to brighten up a gloomy Friday morning ensemble. In this creative outfit, leather blends perfectly with normal everyday wear on top. When you’re stuck in the cold for the next couple months in oversized puffy jackets, its fun to add a little flavor when you can. Keep it fun with striking leather so you’re not tied to your habitual winter wear. Whether you choose black or a wild color, leather leggings will add a little glamour that distressed flannel or even a crisp white button-down. Finally, keep in-tune with this Fashionista’s style and pair it with your favorite leather items, gorgeous totes and heeled booties.
