STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather in Any Weather

As winter comes to an end each year, we put away our sweaters and jackets in preparation for summer. Summer is the season for tank tops, shorts and sandals. But do you really have to put away all of your winter clothes?

No! One of the most versatile pieces to wear is a leather jacket. Regardless of the color, leather jackets look good in any season. Some Fashionista/os may be hesitant in wearing them this time of year, simply because it is very hot out, but leather jackets keep you surprisingly cool. Also there are many chilly summer nights where a leather jacket would be appropriate.

This Fashionisto is wearing an Eleven Paris brand graphic T-shirt paired with an AllSaints leather jacket. The graphic T-shirt really makes this look stand out with its unique design and colorful accents. In addition to the shirt, the jacket really ties the whole outfit together. To add more leather into this look, a Michael Kors watch is also worn. This Fashionisto is also rockin’ two designer bracelets: David Yurman and Giles & Brother. Accessorizing is always important in any look! Lastly, the shoes featured are rag & bone suede sneakers.

Overall, leather can be worn any time of the year. Whether it is a jacket, vest, or even pants, leather is a major trend this year. This look is a must-have this summer.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Even though a leather piece is more of a fall or winter item, don’t be afraid to wear it in the summer. Having that extra edge that the leather offers can really highlight the outfit.”
