Trend To Try: Leather

Trend To Try: Leather


I mentioned before here, that leather is a huge trend right now and you are probably seeing it everywhere - shorts, pants, skirts, jewelry - anything that can be made out of leather, will be made out of leather.  It took me a little time to finally come around to the idea of leather clothing since it looked so restricting and just not comfortable; plus I was afraid that I would look more like an awkward fool than too cool for school.  But after searching around and finding such sophisticated shapes in buttery, soft leather, I was ready to take the plunge.
If you are apprehensive about wearing leather as I was, start with a skirt, blouse or blazer with leather trim to test the waters and bring out your inner rocker chick.  Leather pencil skirts are the new classic piece to own and when paired with a cropped tweed jacket or tucked in silk blouse, you look like the perfectly polished lady in charge.  Add a collared or bow neck blouse under a leather dress to soften the look and keep it feminine.  And when you are ready to bring out the big guns, try your leather pants with a tuxedo blazer, fur vest or oversize cashmere sweater.

Here are some of my favorite leather picks:
- Dorothy Perkins Cream/black Leather Trim Top, $38

- Lauren Conrad Pleated Faux Leather Shorts, $32

- H&M Faux Leather Jacket, $47 (not for sale online)
- Gorjana Graham Leather Studded Triple Wrap Bracelet, $55
- Oasis Faux Leather Trim Pleat Skirt, $27
- Topshop Military Belted Coat, $178

  6. I have been somewhat reluctant to try the leather trend... but your selection has inspired me! The right skirt or trousers can really be quite versatile...
