Even though the weather has warmed up, it doesn’t mean you have to pack away all of your most loved leather pieces! I am a huge fan of styling leather and I try to incorporate it into my wardrobe, regardless of the season. Style your favorite pair of leather leggings with a muscle tee or a soft plaid top (like the Rails shirt I am wearing in these photos, so worth the investment!) and a pair of flat or heeled sandals and you have an edgy springtime look. When wearing a leather bottom, I usually carry my denim jacket so that I have something to throw on when it cools down at night.
These J.Mendel leather pants have been a favorite of mine since I found them on sale at Ella Rue last fall and I haven’t been able to take them off since! I also have a super thin buttery-leather jacket from Vince that I wear religiously in the spring as well. So don’t cross leather off your list, just because it’s spring. It really is a material that you can wear year round, well that is until we hit 100+ here in the district and well at that point, nothing is comfortable..
