One of the biggest trends that is dominating the fashion world is leather. Most people tend to think that fashions created out of leather, and its substitutes are tailored to folks belonging to the younger age demographic. If you happen to be one of those ladies that have long held on to this notion, it is time for you to let it go.
Leather pieces can be incorporated into any wardrobe, and each look can be tailored to fit any age demographic, and any style. The key to making leather pieces work is learning how to mix and match coordinating fabrics and accessories. If you are looking for a way to modernize your wardrobe, and give it a little bit of an edge here are some ways that you can add some leather pieces to your fashion staples.
Subtle Yet Professional
If you are not accustomed to wearing clothing that is made out of leather, you are probably a little sheepish about going all in and purchasing something made entirely out of the material. Choosing a blouse that is trimmed with leather piping around the sleeves and even the collar is a great first step. Pair your blouse with a nice black pencil skirt that hits just above the knee and a pair of classic black pumps, and you can carry your new look straight into the office.
Two for One
If you are looking for a look that is casual but still trend worthy, pair a sweater or a top that has leather pockets or elbow patches. Pull out your favorite pair of jeans and a cute pair of booties and you will be ready to enjoy a leisurely day on the town. This same look can be converted to a date night look as well, as you can pair it with a pair of strappy sandals and add a few accessories like some hoop earrings, and a statement necklace.
Show Some Leg
Put your calves on display in a mini skirt trimmed in leather. Look for pieces that have trim around the bottom edge of the skirt, and around the waistband. Skirts that have zippers that are made into the leather are very trendy, and give a good contrast to the fabric of the skirt. Pair your skirt with a cute top and a cute pair of stiletto open toe booties.
The Leather Fitted Jacket
You can never go wrong with a leather jacket. Purchase one in black, white, or red, and you will be surprised by how far you will be able to stretch your wardrobe. A colorful top, a sleek belt, and a pair of jeans will give you a fun, flirty and casual look. Take the same jacket and pair it with a little black dress and some basic black pumps, and you have a look that is professional enough for the office.
There is no reason to shy away from leather because there are so many ways that you can add it to your wardrobe and still look sleek and classy. Other leather looks that you can purchase to spruce up your wardrobe include dresses and pants that are trimmed in leather. Leather earrings, bracelets, and necklaces are also all the rage, so shop around the internet for inexpensive pieces, and ease your way into the leather trend.
