STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Lavish Leather

We’ve all been terrified of rocking leather pants since the episode in which Ross Geller has a dating fiasco in Friends. The truth of the matter is that leather’s making a major comeback. It can be incorporated into a variety of different styles to add a dark and modern component to any outfit.

You can bring leather into your outfit in a plethora of different ways. For example, you can wear it in the form of a leather choker for a grungy vibe. To make a more powerful statement, you can wear leather leggings or a leather vest with long fringes to add a bohemian accent to your look. Regardless of how you choose to wear it, the material will look sleek and tasteful. The versatility of leather allows you to choose the type of style you want to achieve. It can be played down for a more casual look with graphic T-shirts or some leather sneakers. Plus, it can also be dressed up for a night out with a blazer or some strappy heels.

As simple as some leather pieces may seem, they add a lot of spunk to any look. They pull a look together, and add more style than any other plain black article of clothing. For instance, your look can be taken to the next level with some leather pants instead of simply wearing your favorite pair of black leggings.

This Fashionista decided to pair her leather leggings with a T-shirt, a blue blazer and some open-toed heels by Jessica Simpson. These items bring the outfit together with their flashy colors. A look like this can be worn from anywhere to a concert or a night out with friends.
