LEATHER WEATHER

So wearing leather has lost the bawdy stigma of the past.  It is no longer just for the outlaws or the goth club kid.  Wearing leather can even be pretty, just try mixing a tulle skirt with a motorcycle jacket!  My style philosophy as a woman is to wear something that makes me feel feminine but I try to make sure it has a little edge to it.  I want it to be known that I can kick your ass if needed, but I will be wearing heels.  These are easy ways to style leather, they also make great faux leather these days so don't fret my vegan friends!

I love this leather dress. It's prim with the high neckline and universally flattering with an A-line  skirt. Pair with a colorful floral scarf and some flats for a daytime look.

This is how you wear leather to work.  The idea is to keep it fitted but not skin tight.  That drapey cardigan and simple tee soften the whole ensemble.

So be brave and give leather a try.  I think you'll be surprised at the confidence that it gives you.
