Fash Love: Leather

I've been meaning to try wearing leather for a long time but unfortunately the weather here isn't ideal for this kind of fabric. However, I haven't given up on leather just yet, especially when I see adorable leather pieces that look effortlessly chic and edgy. If I can find the perfect piece, you might even see me sporting this on my blog soon.

In the meantime, I love getting inspiration from other fashion bloggers on how to rock leather pieces. But if I ever decide to make this investment, I need to find staple leather pieces that I can mix and match with a variety of other fashion pieces, too. Below are some of my leather must-haves:


 1) BB Dakota Branson Black Dress ($91) - I am a big, big fan of LBD! In fact, if I had to pick a dress that I could wear over and over again, I'd go for an LBD in a heartbeat! Thus, I gushed when I saw this leather piece on Lulu's website because it is simply stunning. The vegan leather provides an edgy vibe to the outfit while the texture of the fabric also gives it more character. Definitely a perfect dress for a nightout or cocktail parties!

2) Steve Madden Pointed Toe High Heel Booties ($ 149) - Oh yes, which girl does not dream of having booties? I specifically wanted to get ankle booties and when I saw these pointed high heeled ones, I was beyond excited! I wish it would magically appear in my shoe closet then I'd be much happier right now!

3) Black Vegan Leather Shorts ($ 40) - The banded waist and flattering high-waisted fit of these shorts are too hot to resist. Indeed, there is nothing like leather shorts to make a style statement if you're confident enough to bare your gams!

4) Black Leather Skinny Pants ($ 47) - Black and skinny are my two favorite things when it comes to pants. Certainly, you can't go wrong with this pick. Plus, it goes with anything!

Which of these leather pieces are your favorite/s?

  1. I really like those shorts- don't know how they would wear with grubby kiddy hands though! I do have some faux leather pants that I picked up a while ago but the fit isn't great as they are too long and baggy- I don't know what I was thinking when I bought them.

  7. I've been hoping to add some more fall/winter shoes to my collection. Those booties look great because I could wear them to work and they would keep my feet warm! I'm not normally into leather beyond accessories, but I recently discovered wax-coated denim, which looks sort of like leather (it has a shine, so it feels like it has the "edge" of leather), which I think is going to be my "leather replacement" for my own wardrobe!

  9. Great pick with the booties; they're so chic and sexy! I always buy something chunkier but am thinking I should take a look at a sleeker pair!

  11. Nice picks! Loving the black and white and of course the leather. I'm guessing it's too hot for leather where you're at? Why don't you try some leather trims or detailing? I just did a post on those last week. Good luck finding the perfect piece!
