There is nothing more in now than leather, sorry vegans (there’s always faux!). Leather purses, leather boots, leather jackets, etc etc.
Don’t pack up your warm weather wardrobe just yet. Adding leather allows you to wear your favorite spring looks right into autumn. Toughen up a sweet summer dress with a leather jacket like this Michael Kors snap-tab collar jacket. Or add some knee-high boots and a structured blazer to your favorite cotton dress for instant fall glamour.
Leather can even be office appropriate. Try pairing a leather skirt, like this DKNY Leather Pencil Skirt with a colorful sweater. Or grab an espresso colored skirt, like the Brunello Cucinelli Leather and Wool Pencil skirt with a great white sweater. Accessorize with a great statement bag and a pair of pumps and you’re ready to go.
A little more daring? Go full out and rock leather pants or a fun leather panel dress. We love the 10 Crosby Derek Lam Leather-Paneled Stretch Jersey Dress for this effortlessly trendy look. Or the 10 Crosby Derek Lam Leather and Stretch Jersey Straight Leg Pants for a sophisticated meets rock and roll outfit.
The trick is not to wear layer upon layer of leather all at once. Pick one great piece, whether it’s a coat, skirt, or boots and work the rest of your outfit around it.
