FASHION | FALL TREND: LEATHER UP GIRLS !



Hi my Inside-Out Beauties!

Today I bring you a NEW FALL TREND ALERT!
This season, black leather is everywhere, toughening up all our outfits.
The good thing about leather is that it's a classic and it's never truly outdated.
(Which means you will be able to reuse any new items you get).

That said, it's always good advice to be careful when wearing leather.  It's easy to overdo it and look a little too "I'm a Heavy Metal Rockstar!".  ( Which is great, by the way, if that's what you intended! ).

Let me show you some gorgeous examples of HOW designers are using leather this fall and how you can leather up with style!



When it comes to leather, the golden rule in fashion this season is to use it almost as an accessory or match it up with much softer fabrics.

If you've been out window shopping lately, you probably noticed you can find a lot of new items combining leather with cotton and wool knits.

You'll see that on jackets, sweaters, t-shirts and leggings.  Leather is present in small details such as sleeves, elbow patches, v-necks, cuffs, etc, to just toughen up the look ( ...but only a little bit, I'd say just enough! ).

As a first example, take a look at this essential black tee on the left, with a V neckline and vegan leather sleeves.  Don't you just love how those sleeves spice it up a little?





Another item I found a lot are leather leggingsOnce again, you can see that mix between fabric and vegan leather on this pair of leggings by Sanctuary. The front leather panels and stretch ponte back panels combined make them very feminine, flattering and in my opinion more comfortable to wear than 100% leather leggings.  This pair of black vegan leggings could be easily paired up with just about anything!  But stilettos are a must!





We all know every girl's closet should have a little black dress.  But guess what?  This season, they come with leather details!  This Helmut Lang Half Leather Dress is a great example of what's IN this fall.  A 100% lambskin body top followed by a Mid-weight jersey (95% polyester/5% spandex) straight skirt.



















Talking about little black dresses, here's an eye catching cocktail dress by Awear.  Again, it's a classic must have, but with a twist! A leather-look trim. I love how the designer managed to throw in the trendy side, but still kept it very classy.  One of my favorite findings so far!




We couldn't talk about a leather trend without mentioning some amazing leather jackets!  Look at this Ark & Co. Black Vegan Leather Moto Jacket.  Short and fit and paired with knits and jeans.

 


I have to admit though, that my favorite look is this Vero Moda Distressed Leather Look Biker Jacket by ASOS paired up with a basic white t-shirt with a black Eiffel tower stamped in it and black skinny jeans.  It kind of embodies everything that's IN this season.   Specially the black & white fashion, that some say will continue to be IN next season as well.




But my favorite jacket this fall is this Structured Sleeve Leather Jacket by ASOS.  I love how modern the wraparound funnel neckline looks and how flattering the Structured shoulders are.  I have a very similar leather jacket in my collection and I get many compliments on my posture when I wear it !  < LOL >





So moving on to skirts... This season you'll find leather skirts are a hit.  Take a look at this gorgeous ASOS Pencil leather skirt and notice how, again, it's paired up with a simple cotton white T-shirt, again with a black stamp.  I find thi outfit it very feminine, very elegant and very unforgettable.  Don't you agree?




For the brave ones that like to show off their legs, or the petite ones ( like me ) trying to look a little bit taller, here's a mini skirt version of a very similar look.  This high rise ASOS Wrap Mini Skirt in Leather with Zip sure makes a statement!



Now over to you girls... what do you think of this Fall's Leather Trend?  Are you joining?
