STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather, Leather and More Leather!

Style Advice of the Week

A big trend this year is leather! Leather has now expanded to shirts, pants and even dresses. You see them all over the runway, in addition to celebrities wearing it on the streets. If you wear this trend the right way you can look edgy and classy at the same time. If you want to take the first step into this trend, I would advise to start with the leather jacket. The classic leather jacket is a must have in everyone’s closet. It comes in many different colors and styles. It does not matter if you are girly, trendy, tomboy or punk; a leather jacket can go with any mode. This Fashionista combines her black, edgy leather jacket with her preppy style. She wore her forest green, crop sweater with a gray collared top underneath. She then paired it with high-waisted jeans and brown leather boots. She mentioned how she likes the combination of leather and wool. They look great together and it keeps her warm. I loved how she put two different colored leather pieces together. Who says you can’t wear black and brown together?

The leather jacket is very versatile. You can wear it from fall to winter to spring. It is a great layering piece. For those who live in colder climates there are leather jackets that are thin enough to put under a winter jacket. I believe that the leather jacket can look good with almost everything. You can wear it with an adorable dress and tights, or even a flowy skirt with a cute blouse. A classic black one is good to have because it can go with a lot of pieces. Having some studs and zippers are a plus! Feeling adventurous? You can buy a color-block, leather jacket. It can be a statement piece. Once you love your leather jacket,you can expand and add leather to other parts of your wardrobe. I recently bought leather leggings and a strapless, black, leather top. I cannot get enough of leather!
