The city girl in me has always loved a little bit of leather, but I had never ventured too far into the medium besides some leather on boots or a bag. Recent trends have shown leather popping up everywhere from full on leather shift dresses (gorgeous by the way) to sweaters or tops with leather embellished sleeves or patches. A few years ago I thrifted a deep red below the knee leather skirt that I love breaking out come fall, but I had been craving something more color appropriate. Enter: B-Sides and this short black number. Five minutes in the dressing room and I was sold. I even came home and wore it around the house until time for bed. With a little chambray and jewels I made it work for work later that week – no small feat with something made of leather.
How have you been satisfying your leather cravings lately? Have you braved the full on leather pant trend or do you stick with accessories? Do share!
