How to Wear the New Leather: Moving Beyond the Moto Jacket
For cooler months well, there’s always a fabulous a go-to that is both stylish and warm. We’re going to show you three great ways to incorporate leather dresses and skirt into a winter wardrobe.
This season give your everyday leather jacket a rest and opt for a less traditional accent to a edge up your look whether we show them in innovative silhouette at Celine, Derek Lam and Alexander Wang.
Adriana is wearing a black leather Penal dress which and alternative pure basic shift dress silhouette. The Panel will get the leather statement across or also adding a chic element. The front slit is very low so put on a great turtleneck like this one from Gap to make a look more appropriate for Winter. If you want to show a little more skin at night, wear the dress in a sweater as seen on the Derek Lam runway.
A tan showing jacket lines up the outfit and gives it an all-weather feel and this one was leather piping and sued really place up the team. This pop in booties add some toughness so to offset it, we clipped Adriana’s hair in a feminine high button.
The ladylike look is going strong for fall, so choose a pleated leather skirt to incorporate both key trends. We love this leather skirt on Adriana with pretty pleats by Rebecca Minkoff. The ‘70’s are back in a big way this season. So we channeled this decade with a purplatory birch blouse. The soft top contrast nicely with the leather skirt on bottom and makes the look more sophisticated.
For the shoes, a paired leopard ballet flats like this Lanvin is an easy way to add a popup print to the outfit. You knew that leather can be so subtle and sweet.
Leather doesn’t have to be worn in a neutral color. So try for fall fiery red hue. This dress by Catherine Malandrino has a great mix of tough and girly qualities. The scalloped bust and pleated skirt blends on feminine details that you don’t often see in leather. Taking a cue from the Spring 2011 runways play with pinks and reds together.
Here we have a pink slouchy Rebecca Taylor sweater over the dress to give up the appearance of a skirt. Well, we show a touch of the red shoulder strap taken so tell of the dress, the loose sweater gives often effortlessly cool field.
The pink and red color combo is quite girly so we made it more earthy with the tan Steven Madinox in Oxford. A block cross party bag is great for on-the-go and completes the ensemble. Whether you prefer dresses or skirts, we hope these looks have inspired you to put away your motor jacket and try out some of this fresh leather alternative.
