Leather Faux or No?

In my opinion, real always wins when it comes to leather.  It’s a worthy investment, and it will be with you for years, it may even outlive some relationships.


Here are my top 5 favourite ways to wear leather and where to get it:


1.  Leather skirt – opt for an A-line leather skirt in a dark charcoal or black that falls just below the knee. Team it with a feminine lace blouse and finish with a pair of stilettos or a lace up detail heel or wedge for a bit of extra attitude.


Try the White Suede Ultra Leather Skirt RRP $339.00


2.  Leather pants – these can take you from the office to after work drinks in just a few steps, wear with a plain tee and a structured jacket in a bold colour for a great work-chic look.


Try the Camilla and Marc Wireless Legging RRP $799.00


3.  Leather dress – A leather dress is a great wardrobe investment that can easily be worn throughout the year.  A tunic silhouette is flattering and timeless.


Try the Saint Laurent Classic Plonge Leather Dress RRP $3738


4.  Leather jacket – A cropped, close-fitting leather jacket will create the perfect sophisticated look. Wear this with jeans and a long sleeve tee knit when the colder months begin to hit, and finish with a wool scarf. Otherwise, wear this over a chic cocktail dress for some extra style.


Try the Helmut Lang Wither Leather Jacket RRP$1510


5.  Leather short – Tailored leather mid-thigh shorts are sexy without being too saucy.  Wear them with a pair of strappy sandals or ankle boots.   In winter, team with a black opaque tight and this season’s must-have shoe, a metallic brogue.
