Happy Monday, guys!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are excited and geared up for the week ahead. I had quite the weekend with attending Fleastyle Summit and speaking as a mentor, entertaining my sweet family, and then celebrating a baby girl on the way for my husband’s cousin. It was busy, but it was all so good. I am ready to start this work week though, and I’m kicking it off by talking about leather!
Leather is such a fun material to start incorporating into your wardrobe during the Fall and Winter. It can feel a little daunting however if you’ve never done it. So, over the next few weeks I’ll be styling it in several different ways to give you guys some inspiration. To me, there are 3 super simple ways to add leather to your wardrobe. The first is…
1 – A SKIRT
This way of styling leather is a bit new to me. In the past when I heard leather skirt I pictured a tight little mini skirt and maybe a motorcycle. That is such a selective way to think of skirts though. The great thing about skirts is that they can be super playful and fun. For example, this pencil skirt would be a great option for work; this fit and flare skirt has such a feminine vibe; and, today’s skirt has such a playful vibe.
2 – PANTS
This is my favorite way to incorporate this trend. Y’all, every girl needs to own a pair of leather leggings. They are life changing. Seriously though, owning leather leggings make it so easy to make an effortless statement. They look great paired under a blouse, a sweatshirt, a sweater, or a blazer. Leather leggings pretty much look great with anything and everything. I just got these detailed leggings from LOFT, but you really can’t go wrong with what you pick.
3 – A JACKET
Okay, and the easiest way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe is via a jacket. We can probably all agree on that one. A leather jacket is a classic item. It will serve you well season after season and it makes such a great statement every time you wear it. Leather jackets are also super versatile – wear them with a skirt, jeans, over a dress, you name it.
