Style Advice of the Week

If there’s one thing we’ve fallen head over heels for this season at CollegeFashionista, it’s leather. Leather pants, leather skirts, leather jackets, leather everything. There’s just something so luxe about the fabric that gives an instant upgrade to anything worn with it.

Leather accents have been huge throughout the winter season; leather boots, leather paneling and as this Fashionista demonstrates, the leather sleeve. The trend has been spotted everywhere. From knits and denim jackets to khaki or green army jackets, leather sleeves can amp up any look!

This Fashionista pairs the light wash denim and black leather with a chunky knit scarf in a soft berry color. The scarf adds a cozy element to the getup while the color keeps it fresh and light. She keeps the rest of her look simple, layering a black tank over a pair of liquid leggings, which you can find here from American Apparel. Combat boots are also a staple on the Bloomington campus for day to day class-wear, as this Fashionista exhibits.

Comfortable and casual, a jacket like this one would even look good over a white slip dress, paired with sheer tights and some black booties. Accessorize with simple pieces that pull the look together, as not to detract from the jacket. The Fashionista’s watch stood out against the dark palette, and added a little sparkle to the look.

Don’t be afraid to try different versions of the jacket either. This one screams military chic in forest green with fur on the inside. Play with leather this season and mix in some softer pieces to take the edge off!
