Leather Fix

Whether it's real or it's fake, leather, faux leather, pleather (whatever you want to call it) is in this season. Although, when I think about it...it has never really gone out of style to begin with. There are more versatile ways to add leather into your Fall lineup so pay attention, this post will give you your leather fix! You can choose leather leggings, pants, jackets, blazers, bags or even small leather accents. The best thing is you can find (faux) leather at all different price ranges. So whether you're a college student trying to survive or an established woman on Wall Street, you can adopt leather into your wardrobe. I for one am a Faux Leather Cropped Jacket FANATIC. Like seriously, I have at least 8 cropped Faux Leather Jackets (but who's counting right lol)? I just purchased a faux leather spiked shoulder biker jacket not too long ago from GoJane.com that I can't wait to rock (it even comes with a little sheer detachable detail at the bottom of the jacket to add a surprise element). But enough about me. Here are a few leather pieces I found that you could easily rock with sneakers, boots, ruffled shirts, sweatshirts etc. Your options are endless.

LBD (Little Black Dress) with frontal leather detail

Pleated black skirt, you can complete this look with a crisp white button up, bow tie or bib necklace, pointed capstone pumps, and bold red lip

Sleek, black leather pencil skirt

Belted leather cognac colored skirt

Cognac leather shorts (I have a very similar pair I bought from Lauren Conrad's line at Kohl's)

Oxblood leather mini shorts

Leather leggings

Another pair of leggings (she make it more rocker chick by adding the gold buckle black boots)

Faux leather leggings

Faux leather white vest from...Kmart (can you believe it)

Leather biker jacket, I love the diagonal zipper detail and the intricate collar

Leather sleeve boyfriend blazer in black

Leather sleeved blazer with camel colored bodice

Military inspired jacket with leather sleeves (I LOVE THIS JACKET)

Quilted Leather Bag from Forever 21 (this is definitely going on my Fall Wish list)

Spiked leather head band
All in all, if I had to describe leather in 3 words I would say: Chic, polished, and edgy!!!! Leather can accomplish all of these looks effortlessly without you even trying hard.
