STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Lovin' Leather

It is slowly but surely getting warmer over here on the East Coast. And as these temperatures start to creep up, those thick puffer jackets are being pushed to the back of Fashionistas’ closets. However, it is far from just T-shirt and jeans weather, as a jacket is still definitely a necessity when stepping out into the fresh air. So, what type of jacket is perfectly appropriate for the start of the spring season? Leather.

This Fashionista perfectly rocks an edgy, sleek look. From head to toe, she dons my favorite color, black, and does so in an interesting, detail-oriented way. She wears a simple black hoodie, ripped skinny jeans and some great accessories to make this a standout look. With some striped, round sunglasses, a structured black purse and studded pleather, pointed-toe shoes, this Fashionista exudes a cool rocker-chic look.

The essential piece, however, resides in this Fashionista’s leather jacket. This black leather jacket is detailed with zippers and buckles. The pebbled leather on the body of the jacket and the textured sleeves further make this an eye-catching element, allowing this jacket to stand out from the other leather pieces she wears. Leather usually exudes a sort of edgy rocker vibe, but the ripped jeans play this look down a bit, making it a little more casual and perfect for most occasions.

All in all, this look perfectly combines multiple leather elements. This Fashionista successfully sports this almost all-black outfit, exuding a sophisticated and clean look, while still staying trendy. Her outfit is simple, but her few accessories stand out on their own, as these stylish elements do not need to be hidden behind loads of jewelry and busy adornments.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Don’t overdo it. Leather is always a good way to go. It is both simple and edgy and always looks pulled together.”
