Lovin' Leather

Lovin' Leather

This fall season, women’s fashion is all about leather! Forget those faux leather leggings, those are so last season! And that leather jacket? It’s definitely a basic so let’s spice up your closet! Depending on what you pair with leather, this look can be classic or sexy. Here are a few pieces and how to change the look for classic to sexy!

The classic leather jacket. Biker style leather jackets will always be hot.

Classic: wear this leather jacket over a nice blouse and trousers for a nice work look. It is not your basic blazer and adds a little attitude to an everyday outfit.
           Sexy: throw this leather jacket on over a sexy cocktail dress. The mix between feminine and tough is super sexy!

The leather pencil skirt. It’s a modern way to wear the classic black skirt.

Classic: wear this sexy skirt with a solid silk blouse (bright colors will always add interest to an outfit) and wear cool patterned tights. The pattern adds visual interest but keeps the sex appeal down so that this look is definitely work-appropriate. Wear a pair of pumps and you have a modern twist to classic work wear.

Leather shorts. Yes, these sexy shorts can be tamed, just watch!

Classic: wear these shorts with a fitted long sleeved top, a pair of solid, dark hued tights and a pair of pumps. Why isn’t this too sexy for work? Because you are not showing off too much skin. Granted, if you are working at a more conservative establishment this outfit would definitely not fly. But if you are allowed more freedom, this is definitely a trendy look that is going to look professional and trendy!

Sexy: wear a long tunic style tank with these shorts. The top should have patterns to add more visual interest to the outfit. I always suggest mixing textures: add a girly ruffled top or a silky tank so you are mixing the hard with the soft. Add a pair of peep toed pumps and you have a perfect recipe for sexiness!

Fringe boots. These babies are so hot on the runways, they are practically scorching!

Classic: Pair cowl neck sweater with a pencil skirt. The look is totally in as the weather cools. With a pair of solid tights and those sexy fringe boots over, this look is conservative yet totally trendy!

Sexy: Wear a sexy tunic dress with this boots. The fact that you have a structured dress with these swaying boots is a perfect mix of ultra stylish pieces.

Leather is a staple for any woman’s wardrobe. Whether you are ultra daring or a little on the conservative side, there are so many ways to wear these fall pieces. Experiment and try out these new looks to see which work for you! And remember: only mix one piece of leather--you don't want to look like Catwoman!
