The Leather Trend: Bombshell to Biker
Leather is just the right look for this winter. It’s easy to add into almost any outfit, and it instantly gives you an updated, trendy appearance. Which are the pieces that will add the most value to your closet while providing just the right amount of leather to your style? Consider shoes, jackets, and purses.
Leather shoes are some of the highest in quality, so if you want to purchase a staple piece that will last, this is the way to go. You can choose from boots or flats, wedges or heels. Boots are always a great piece for the winter, and you can find some with stiletto heels or those on a wedge; you can get boots that are made in a Wellington style, or opt for flat-heeled boots with leather and fur. When you buy boots, look for three things: comfort, style, and value. Right now, leather is a huge trend, and if you can also get quilted elements, you’ll have a striking piece that suits the styles of today. Lace-up leather boots that go over the knee can look like military-style boots or give you a sexy edge, depending on the heel and design.
Leather-look and leather jackets are popular this season. They keep you warm while adding a punky look to any outfit. These jackets are most popular in black, and you can choose from a variety of styles. Quilted jackets are warmer, while some jackets zip with leather arms and comfortable fabric bodies. Completely leather jackets come in short fitted styles or in trench coat designs.
If you’d rather add only a tiny touch of leather to your outfit, opt for a leather bag. It will last nearly forever, and the quality can’t be beat. Bags that are popular at present have chains, studs, leather, and other elements that will make you look like a rock princess.
