One thing I love about fashion is how old trends are constantly reinvented in new and exciting ways, and leather is no exception. Leather is a timeless material that will always be in style no matter the season, but this is especially true during colder weather. And while I love my classic leather jacket – I basically live in it - here are a few new ways to wear this fun fabric.
THE LEATHER SKIRT
A basic leather skirt is not technically new, but the way Jessie wears hers is so modern! A baggy shirt hanging out of the bottom of your skirt is not for the faint of heart, but it's not as unattainable as it may first seem. The trick is to purchase a white dress instead of a shirt so that you have the length without the added bulkiness. If you aren't sure about this look, try a tight leather mini skirt with an oversized white blouse tucked in to give a similar effect.
Pleats are a current obsession of mine. If you're more on the retro side of style, this look will be right your alley.
The classic gym shoe instantly ups the cool factor of skirts and dresses.
Midi skirts lose their prim factor when paired with sneaks and cocktail dresses drop the fancy factor when worn with gym shoes.
Black pants have always been a closet staple that go with everything. But in leather, they give instant cool-girl cred to any outfit, adding the perf amount of edge and style to everything from basic tees and slouchy sweatshirts to preppy oxfords and sweaters.
THE LEATHER DRESS
The leather dress is very minimalist and feminine this season with loose silhouettes and basic features.
The key to making sure this look doesn’t step on the verge of boring is to accessorize it appropriately.
