Warm Weather Leather?

Yes, it is true! Leather is not made for just one season. Get ready to rock leather in the warmer weather. I was surprised myself when I saw it featured in Alexander Wang's spring 2009 collection. But it now goes beyond leather leggings and jackets, designers have given leather a whole new life. Hermes featured a leather jumpsuit, Balmain dressed models in leather dresses. And ruffled leather skirts were shown at Valentino. Vests, Jackets, Shorts, Skirts, whatever you desire. This trend gives you a look that is feminine, yet strong. You can tone down the tough image with denim, plain/ruffled tops or a soft sweater. Some of my favorite looks were from Celine's Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection, which featured leather skirts and a leather top. I love how caramel tones were used instead of black in Celine as well as a leather jumpsuit shown at Chloe. So give your outfit edge year-round & instead of putting your leather away, rock it into the warmer seasons too!

  1. Me too, Alicia. When I was younger my mom had a great black leather skirt that I envied. I was too small to fit into it but of course I walked around the house thinking I was chic. hahaa
