There’s just something about leather that just gives you that instant confidence boost. Whether it’s a leather jacket, pair of pants or skirt, the fabric gives off a sexy, but mysterious touch to your ensemble. Over the years, the appearance of texture on fashion trends has been a popular fad. It makes leather look edgy and gives it that right amount of grunge. Even though spring is well underway, who said you can’t bring leather to the party?

To make the edgy leather look acceptable in the spring, all you need is a balance of lighter components that completes your outfit. This Fashionista aced this look by pairing her quilted pattern leather skirt with an olive green button-down top. The look is not too busy and flows perfectly. The details of the two side zippers and the quilt on her skirt is what adds personality to her outfit. It makes the look fun and grungy. Also, the fit of the skirt and top shows that if you wear it right, it can display all of the right curves. The addition of texture in your outfit can really add that dash of sophistication. Since it puts your outfit in the perfect range of more than casual, but not too dressy for everyday activities. You can still work hard and look good doing it!

The key to a RAD outfit is to accessorize. To transition into that spring feel, dainty jewelry is the best way to make your outfit feel free-spirited. This Fashionista wore a layered geometric necklace and paired it with some silver studs to match. She finishes off her look by wearing chunky heeled sandals, which adds another component of leather.

How To: Perfect this look by balancing your textures. Too much texture can look busy. If your bottoms has pattern, then pair it with a complementary top that is plain or that has a more subtle texture. Wear dainty accessories like layered necklaces and midi rings to accessorize your outfit. You can either pair it with sandals or flats for a comfy yet cute style!
