Leather has quickly become a spring fashion staple and if squeezing into a pair of leather pants just isn’t your thing there are many other ways to rock the look. With leather embellishments on sleeves, collars, bows, handbags and hair accessories, the options are infinite. We especially love leather detailing because it combines soft, flirty elements with the most unexpected treatment, giving off a striking spring look that works for day or night. There’s a warm-weather leather style for everyone at every budget and we’ve rounded up some of our favorite leather pieces.
Faux Leather mini
We love how this tough faux Leather black mini dress (on sale!) is sweetened up thanks to the sliver of lady-like lace down the middle. Pair it with low-rise booties or black and white pumps for an edgy, night on the town look.
Faux Leather Trim Tank
Leather Sleeve T
If you’re a jeans and T-shirt girl, this is for you. We love how this soft, pink scoop-neck tee (on sale!) is unexpectedly sexy with the boxy leather sleeves, putting a wild twist on a casual classic. This would look great paired with a curve hugging pencil skirt or these Vince destroyed skinny black jeans.
Black Leather Shorts
They’re tough, they’re chic, and if paired with the right ensemble, leather shorts can be quite sophisticated. We love this pair from Rag & Bone with the girly cotton lace trim on the bottom. They would look perfect with a white blouse and these Nude Ballet flats from Asos.com.
What do you think of the leather trend? How would you wear it?
