Fashion Tip: Leather – now more versatile than ever

Leather

The leather fabric trend, is the coolest thing at the moment. Forget the old boring leather stone age jackets.

The new leather is the easiest and funkiest way to pull off a casual look. You can wear your leather as patches on your shirt’s elbows, lapels or even sleeves. You can also wear leather on jackets, shorts, trousers and even vests.

The leather trend usually comes in darker hues like black, green, red and brown, so you will need to pair it with a smashing colour like white, depending on your style sense.

Keep in mind though that wearing leather on leather is tricky. It is usually wise to keep the leather on only one of the items in your look. If it’s the top, then stick to that. If you chose the bottom, then so be it. Don’t step out wearing leather from top, to bottom.

Leather can also be very uncomfortable, especially when it is hot, so it is advisable to have on as less leather as possible, in your outfit.

If you, for instance wear black loose fitting leather pants, then you can pair them with a simple tee, in another fabric. You can finish this look off with a pair of high top sneakers, and add a nice jacket. You can also choose to wear a leather detailed shirt, and complete this with a pair of chino pants.

If you wear an all-black outfit, with let’s say a leather shirt, then you should add an accessory like a chain. This will help to add sparkle to your look.

You can get leather items of your choice from various shops around town, like Designer’s World at Majestic Plaza. Prices vary depending on point of purchase.

This suit makes a bold stament itself, so you don’t need to clutter the look with a hand bag. If you are wearing it to a red carpet event, then you can do with a little clutch bag.
