ALL IN THE DETAILS: Leather In Hot Weather

Leather is a classic texture that never goes out of style. Every season, leather looks are reinvented, but the contemporary feel remains the same. Although the summer weather keeps you from wearing your go-to leather jacket or pants, leather can still be incorporated into your daily look. This cloudy day does not stop this Fashionista from showing off an edgy bohemian look in Sicily. Her leather fringe bag and black gladiator sandals are a great way to add a punch to her outfit.

This daring Fashionista wears a black, paisley print shift dress. The contrast between the black and colorful paisley print takes an edgy spin on a hippie inspired look. She wears a beige woven belt to shape the boxy dress and the tassel necktie adds flare. Mirror tinted Ray-Bans bring a new color to the outfit and her halfway up wavy hairdo ties in with the laid-back look.

Her leather gladiators are eye-catching as the gold buckles give off a punk rock feel. Her shoes are great for walking in the Italian streets with many hills and steps. The leather fringe Steve Madden bag is on-trend and it is a great size and shape for touring around Italy. Both leather pieces are staples in her closet and can be worn for many seasons to come. The advantage of leather accessories is how versatile it can make an outfit. For this Fashionista, leather turns her bohemian look from feminine flirty to punk hippie.
