As the seasons begin to change, leather is certain to be a staple on the fashion forecast. A fabric that was once to only associated with tough bikers and edgy rockers is making it's way to into the closets of even the most conservative women. Leather is no longer reserved for Harley rides and outdoor concerts but is popping up in a variety of cuts and hues. I've compiled some of my favorite leather looks for fall! From jackets and leggings to handbags and boots, there's a look for everyone.
Jackets - The leather jacket is sure to be the outerwear of choice for many fashionistas this season. Look for it in hues of red, green, or gray for a pop of color and added texture to any outfit. Softer hues such as tan or cognac can spice up your look while still keeping it appropriate for the office. Go for cuts that are slim and be sure the sleeves aren't too long to avoid a baggy or messy look.
Magan's Pick: Hinge Fitted Leather Jacket - Nordstrom $328
Leggings - This edgy take on last fall's jeggings is sure to be a big hit this year. Pair leather leggings with sweaters and heels for a fun take on the traditional leggings and tunic look. Throw on a pair of studded heels and a sequined take for a night on the town and you're sure to turn heads!
Boots - The most popular leather accessory is making a return this season. Leather riding boots are the perfect leather accessory because they are comfortable yet versatile. Wear them from the office to dinner and with everything from dresses to jeans. Look for boots in cognac or black with a slim fit around the calf. A good quality pair of leather boots are definitely worth the investment because you'll be wearing them for years to come!
