The Leather Jacket
Okay girls… If you were going to invest in one leather item to add to your wardrobe, the leather jacket would definitely be it. It’s simply a must for all my fashion gals out there. There are just so many ways to incorporate this vital item into your daily outfits and is definitely something that can be worn season after season without going in and out of the trending stratosphere. Throw it over just about any outfit to catapult it to the next level!
A neat but edgy shape in a versatile color like black, nude or beige can take you places year after year, however, a bold color is a real statement if you’re up to it. Good quality leather is paramount, it should be as soft as butter and mold to your body when it warms.
A leather jacket adds a real edge to your outfit. Wear it with killer jeans and sharp heels for a classic go to or a soft dress and boots for a romantic look.
The Leather Pant
These are definitely a luxury item, but if you can get your hands on a pair and look after them they will last a lifetime! Your leather slacks are your go-to item when you need to step it up a notch in the LUXE department. They ooze opulence and literally demand attention.
A little cleaning note for you – the best way to launder them is by storing them in a plastic bag in the freezer for a few days after wearing to kill any bacteria. Kinda gross right? You have to think of them like a well worn in pair of shoes! Just treat them with the utmost care though, no spillage.
The Leather Skirt
Totally lustworthy and on trend, a leather skirt is a super versatile piece that can be worn so many ways. Whether you choose an A-line shape, mini or longer version, this great staple can be worn really elegantly with heels and a blazer or dressed down with trainers and a tee.
Just a note in regards to leather on leather. Question for you… Can you ever have too much of a good thing? I think not! Double it all the way.
I just adore leather and its uber-luxe finish. What is your favorite leather item out of the three? If I had to choose just one, it would have to be the jacket. Let me know your fave in the comment box below!
