This fall, the recipe for being fabulous has to include leather. Leather has the ability to spice up any outfit and make you look chic effortlessly. Incredibly timeless, a leather staple is perhaps the best way to elevate any look. In today’s fashion trends leather not only consists of a jacket or some pants but branches out extensively to dresses, co-ord sets, shorts and tops even. It’s tough to envision a world without leather staples, for both style and function. While many pieces of clothing can feel limiting and suitable for only distinct occasions, leather can be quite versatile and transition seamlessly from a day-to-night look.
Read ahead to see this season’s top leather trends and some outfits to inspire your fall/winter wardrobe:
The Leather Blazer
No, you don’t need to get rid of your cotton blazer but you might want to add a leather version to your wardrobe. One can never go wrong with a blazer to immediately make you look and feel sophisticated. Whether you’re into a boxier fit or something more fitted, the selection on the market runs wide. You could go the casual way with some denim shorts and sneakers or pep it up with a skin-tight dress and some heels.
Y2K was all about the sexy, body-hugging leather pants. Even though they continue to persist in today’s trends leather pants have diversified into several other styles. Wide leg pants for instance are all the rage now, combine them with the leather trend and you have an uber-cool outfit all ready for you. Style it with a cropped top and a cute cardigan for a charming look.
The matching set trend is one of those outfits that are flexible and adapts to its time. At any given time in fashion, there was a kind of co-ord set that reflected and incorporated a particular season’s style. This year it just so happens to be leather. This look is easy and requires absolutely no thought. Just simply throw it on and enjoy your time!
Whether it’s a small baguette bag or a larger tote bag the leather look will make any outfit go from drab to fab. What’s more, is that these bags aren’t only constricted to brown or black, now they are a huge array of colours available for you to choose from. A statement leather bag with a pop of colour could work wonders for your look.
When you think of leather shoes your mind instantly goes to boots. This year leather cowboy boots surprisingly have made a huge comeback. If you’re unsure about that style because let’s face it, it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, there’s a wide variety of colours and prints for you to pick from. A simple all-black outfit with these boots are the way to go for a night on the town.
