4 Fun Ways to Wear Leather

Leather is a strong trend this fall, and it’s been given a new life by being able to wear it in different ways. Although there is also a lot to be said for the classics as well. Leather toughens up an outfit, but also makes it look incredibly polished with a hint of mystery. Leather and metallics have always been the best of friends, but there are a variety of ways to wear the trend if that combination is too much for you.

Sleeves. Instead of wearing a leather jacket, cotton or tweed blazers have been appearing with leather sleeves. This is an unexpected look that really makes a fashion-forward statement. Because a blazer is a staple for any fall wardrobe, this might be the perfect item for someone wanting to slowly introduce leather into their wardrobe.

Pencil Skirt. Mixing the professionalism of a pencil skirt with the downtown vibe of leather makes for a good contrast. Keeping the length longer makes it more versatile to wear more places. Pair with a button-down shirt and ankle-strap pumps for an update on a classic look.

Boots. Boots are the easiest way to work the look. And leather boots look fantastic with pretty much everything. The only problem is picking a favorite pair. There are so many additional options for boots that choosing just one pair might prove to be challenging.

Belts. Wide and skinny, colored or neutral, leather belts are a fun accessory. The next belt on my list is the wrap around kind in black. They make an outfit look chic with a tucked in shirt and slim fit jeans or to create a waistline for a shift dress. Depending on what shape you’re trying to create or colorful additions you want to complete your outfit, a belt is a good way to go.

These are four great ways to wear the leather trend and don't feel like you have to be stuck on black leather alone. Brown, tan, maroon and other fall shades will be sure to be a hit when the cooler temps start to roll in. How do you think you might wear the trend?
