Ladies rejoice!! Leather is back this fall in every way! From accessories, to accents, to full leather pieces, leather is one of the hottest trends for 2012. No longer is leather just for handbags and shoes. The runways displayed the fashionable detail at NY fashion week and now the department stores are stocked with everything leather! I particularly like the trend towards colored leathers like this red leather sleeveless mini dress by Alice + Olivia. The shear ribbed back on this dress is seriously to die for!
Not a fan of wearing real leather but love the leather look? Try this amazing Free People Vegan Leather dress. I just bought this last week and can’t wait to wear it!
An ultimate must-have: leather accents! AIKO pairs the comfort of a jersey dress with leather accent sleeves and the fall 2012 burgundy trend with this fashionable mini that would be perfect for fall. Try styling it with some black sheer tights and black over-the-knee boots for the ultimate city chic look.
Want to rock the trend in an edgier fashion? Go snag yourself a great pair of leather leggings like these rag & bone zipper accent leggings or these faux-leather blocked leggings by BCBGmaxazria which will look great with any sky-high pump.
I am really loving this leather trend and finding key pieces to pair with classics in my closet has been practically effortless. If you buy one trend piece this year, this is my absolute favorite!
