The Many Sides of Leather

Leather is one fashion element that never seems to fade away, coming back season after season, reworked in its presentation so that every girl can get a taste of its versatile wonderment.

It can be studded all over in jacket form, so it looks tough. It can be brown, faded, and crinkled to perfection for a morning hike through the woods.

It can be colored dyed and saturated in the most exotic of hues, as if it were straight out of an 80’s music video. It can be beige or camel in tone for all those minimalists who define their wardrobes by soft, sandy colors.

Leather makes the perfect cover up for fall, before it's  freezing, but when a shield from the chill is still needed. So, whichever way you decide to wear leather (sleek, rugged, or pristine), make it your own.

There are no limitations.

Be inspired by a few of these leather-based looks right in time for the new season.
