Leather will be seen everywhere this upcoming fall, from shift dresses and a-line skirts to leather-trim coats and tees. It’s no secret that the classic leather jacket has become a popular essential addition to most wardrobes over the last few years. This year however, designers have inspired us to take our lust for leather to a whole new level by wearing the trend in a variety of ways. The trend is definitely one that can be worn by everyone - yes, even you! Follow our hot tips to ensure you are wearing the trend right:

  • The freshest new way to wear leather is in a dress - try an all-over look with a simple and sleek shift dress (sleeveless is fine!) or one that has leather panel detailing. 
  • If dresses aren’t your thing, but you still like that girly-yet-edgy look, you may favor a leather pencil skirt. Paired with a classic button down shirt or cozy sweater, it screams sexy-chic.
  • When worn the right way, leather pants and shorts can look super sophisticated - classic leather trousers will be seen all over the streets this fall, as well as pants and leggings. Keep the rest of your pieces clean, and you’re good to go.
  • To stick to the traditional ways of leather, pair a leather jacket atop your fall denim, dresses, skirts... just about everything! From classic black to soft neutrals, this piece will definitely give any feminine look a tough edge.
  • Whichever route you decide to take with wearing leather, just remember to stick to one piece at a time (don’t wear a leather dress with leather ankle booties and carry a leather handbag - too much of a good thing can be too mcuh!)
