If you read my STYLE GURU BIO last week, then you know that I love leather right now. Real or faux, I don’t discriminate. I like to add leather to any outfit I’m wearing to add some edge to an otherwise plain or girlie look, but wearing black leather piece after black leather piece can be a bit redundant. Investing in some colored leather pieces is a great way to mix up your look without having to sacrifice your leather obsession.
I love this Fashionista’s green leather bag! The classic shape in a fun color like this makes this bag ideal for pairing with a ton of different looks. Let’s face it; we’re not all fashion bloggers who can wear cobalt blue leather bombers on an everyday basis. A darker green is definitely very wearable, no matter how much of a fashion risk taker you are.
This Fashionista added her leather tote to a casual outfit for class, pairing it with other great fall pieces. Her gray Henley T-shirt and skinny jeans paired with an army jacket and white espadrilles make a perfectly effortless look.
How To: Colored leather comes in many forms, so there are tons of options to try out there. If you’re an adventurous Fashionista/o and want to channel your inner fashion blogger, try a blue leather bomber jacket! This one by Club Monaco is originally designed for men, but would look super chic on either gender. You could also try a pair of red leather pants. Heidi Klum wore a pair on Project Runway the other week, so this look is supermodel approved. For those of you who want to dip your toes in the colored leather trend before committing to any big pieces, try a colored leather tote like our featured Fashionista or a white leather baseball cap!
