Leather for Spring? Here’s How to Pull it Off

7 May

Leather might seem difficult to pull off in the warmer months. It’s tough and brings up images of biker gangs and rock stars, and can seem heavy for sunny days. But with these tips straight from the runway, you can rock it in the warmer months.

1. Make it girly.

Take a tip from Burberry Prorsum and pair leather pieces, like a jacket, with daintier fabrics, like florals or lace. This will loosen some of the edge while still keeping it cool.

2. Try a new hue.

Throw on a colored leather skirt or short, and lose the dark black. Colorblocked brights are in right now, and this is a fun way to play with the trend. This Jil Sander green skirt looks right at home with pink and purple. And Christopher Kane’s lace printed leather looks very springy.

3. Keep the leather in the details.

Throw on a pair of leather ankle boots, or a glossy handbag. Below, the bright yet tough heels at Versus. Accessories are great for the leather-shy.

4. Embrace your inner rebel. 

Like to look like a rockstar? Make an outfit Balmain-style with shorts or capris and lots of ripped detail.
