Erase whatever preconceived notion you have in your brain about leather. Unless that notion is it makes you look cool and gives your look a high fashion edge.
If that’s the case, don’t erase anything. Leave it be.
Because a “high fashion edge” is exactly what the look of leather is all about. And for the upcoming season it’s going to be everywhere – even the piping of a classic dress.
So here are four ways (all from West Town Mall a Simon Mall!) to incorporate it into your wardrobe this fall…
These are literally on the top of my “must-have” list. I’ve let the thought of buying them simmer for over a year, now it’s just a matter of time till I find the right ones (these pictured are from Dillard’s, by the way). Wear them as pants, or pair them with a tunic or over-sized sweater and some black stilettos. Mmm girl. I don’t care what age you are, you’re going to look good.
Ok, so maybe you’re not ready to drape your body entirely in the slick material. Go for something like this leather lined dress from Belk. It’s made by Ralph Lauren so you know you’re striking the right chord between classic and cool.
Express really hit the nail on the head with this “wet look cami” as they call it. I love love love the way it drapes. The texture of it would make an all black outfit look so chic. In true Chandler fashion, “Could this top BE any cooler?!”
I’m currently in the market for a new black sweater for the fall….wait, looks like I’ve found the one. This cardigan from The Limited with the front leather detailing is going to be the bad boy of your closet. Pair it with even your sweetest, most floral-y top and it’s going to make them look oh so dangerously good.
