My weather report for the foreseeable future is leather. The sumptuous, buttery fabrication is one of the few fashion items known to withstand the test of time and trends. So, move over Harley riders, lead singers, and moody 90s teenagers, leather is anyone’s game.
I am here to guide you through the essential pieces that every wardrobe needs. Instantly elevate a simple look, add textural dimension, and insert a touch of cool with my picks below.
Welcome to the leather girl gang, your endless supply of compliments will be your initiation.
Shop on friends.
P.S. Word to the wise, don’t skimp on your leather purchases. They are investment pieces. Let your cost-per-wear calculation guide your decisions, as you will be rocking these classics for years to come.
THE BIKER JACKET
Shrug over the shoulders of a dress, pair with a button up and slacks for work, or kick it with a tee shirt and jeans on the weekend.SHOP
THE MINI A-LINE
A chunky sweater, starchy statement blouse, or paper-thin turtleneck is the perfect partner to the a-line.SHOP
Don’t let Ross Gellars’ New Year’s resolution scar you (Friends, anyone?). These bad boys will become one of the most versatile pants in your closet. Work appropriate with a crisp cotton or date night approved with a silk cami or crop.SHOP
THE GO-TO BAG
A rich leather bag with solid hardware can make even a tee shirt and jeans look luxe. It’s an all in one outfit and conversation piece.SHOP
THE SQUARE HEELED BOOT
The make or break of all outfits. A killer boot can land you on the best or worst dressed list. A no-fail recipe is a block heel, slightly pointed toe, in a rich black leather.SHOP
THE MIDI SKIRT
Leg baring is not for the faint of heart. For those that opt for a longer silhouette than the mini, the midi will always be your guiding light. Dress it down with a tee and slides, or follow the same styling tips as the a-line above.SHOP
