Go from Summer to Fall with Chic Leather
Who says switching from your summer wardrobe to fall pieces has to be tricky? For the upcoming cool months, stylists say it’s all about rocking the hottest look in fashion.
Sleek leather dresses, curve-hugging skirts and tough bomber jackets have been popping up among celebrities and upcoming couture collections. While this classic skin is perfect for staying warm during sudden chilly weather, it’s actually a timeless look that has no plans of losing steam.
“Leather is not a trend, it’s a staple,” explains Jen Rade, celebrity stylist and designer of Edge by Jen Rade for QVC. “Leather is so versatile, especially now with designers using all weights and colors, as well as adding details, like zippers, buckles, and every shade imaginable. Depending how it’s styled, leather can easily go from tough and edgy to feminine and soft.”
“Leather has been on the runways for a few seasons prior, including spring 2013, which showcased warm weather leathers,” adds celebrity stylist Marcus Stewart. “Now that the climate is shifting, people are finding this seemingly old idea of leather much more approachable.”
