Style Advice of the Week

LEATHER. It’s fierce, it’s hot, it’s trendy and it can be worn in so many ways that I most likely wouldn’t be able to count them on both hands. Leather is all the rage this season and it is looking blazing hot. Celebrities, rock stars, runway models like those who came down Zac Posen’s catwalk and even your peers are wearing loads of leather. When I spotted this Fashionista strutting her stuff on campus I immediately fell in love with her caramel brown leather jacket. The way the darker toned, shiny leather was juxtaposed against soft minty greens was more than chic. Not only was she rocking this trend in a way that rivals that of the gorgeous Ann Vyalitsyna, but also she effortlessly paired her coat with some fitted skinny jeans and edgy boots. If looking at this oh-so-stylish shot doesn’t make you want to jump out of your seat to buy this look then think again! This top of the line trend can vamp up your wardrobe in a flash and luckily this article right here on CollegeFashionista will tell you how to wear it and where to find it!

Although leather jackets are definitely the hottest hide item for men and women, leather can also be added to your ensemble in accessories, like shoes and bags, and in simplistic detailing. Urban Outfitters always has an amazing amount of leather items stocked in its stores that one can twist it into their look without even thinking twice. Tiny finishes, such as an elegant leather pocket on an oversized top, are an ideal way to add leather without jumping head first into this trend. Make sure that you don’t overdo the leather look by combining too much at one time. An idea that is easy to accomplish is slipping on some leather Madewell boots with a girly ensemble. Also, wearing flirty florals with leather jackets, boots or bags like this Fashionista accomplished is a fun way to throw in some rocker chic flare while maintaining your feminine facade. Don’t be scared to try leather in bright and vibrant colors. Ann Taylor has some amazing leather wristlets that come in bright blues and crisp corals that will help you transition from winter neutrals into sweet spring colors. Stay persistent this season with your love of leather. Whether it’s the real thing, or a less expensive version (don’t worry, it’s nearly impossible to know the difference… and I definitely won’t give away your secret) leather will be sure to impress even the best of us.
