Style Advice of the Week

Winter is not over yet and that means leather is still in style. My style advice for you this week is to get full use out of the leather in your wardrobe before spring comes in full swing, when leather accents will be more appropriate.

The best thing you can wear with a leather jacket is a pair of black leggings. Leather has been very trendy in draped sweaters and jackets recently. Fashionistas everywhere are picking up lightweight cotton jackets that have leather and faux leather accents to add some edge to their style.

This Fashionista wore her leather jacket perfectly with a pair of black leggings and black boots. Lord & Taylor has an adorable faux leather drape jacket, similar to the one this Fashionista is modeling. It is easy to find faux leather jackets on sale if you keep your eyes peeled.

Although, if you are looking for additions to your pant wardrobe instead, another way you can incorporate the leather trend is to adopt a pair of leather leggings or leather jeans. You can find a pair of black imitation leggings that will go well with anything white, black or colored at H&M. This Fashionista wanted to go simpler and ditch the leather leggings, for fear that she would look too fierce.

When wearing all black, it is always fun to accessorize with big jewelry like this Fashionista did. She perfectly combined silver and black arm candy with a big monogram necklace to add a pop to her outfit. You can never go wrong spicing up your outfit with some big jewels and statements. However, make sure not to go too crazy with accessories because leather makes a bold statement as is.

With leather these days, you are not even confined to wearing all black, as many designers have created faux or real leather clothing in various colors. J Brand creatively came up with a pair of vibrant red coated leggings. This would be an excellent addition to your spring wardrobe because of the fun and bright color.

Have fun with leather as winter comes to an end and spring gets started. Whether it be a main part of your outfit or a small accessory or accent, leather is always a trendy and sassy addition to your look.
