STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Living For Leather

Let’s be honest, leather is simply fabulous. Though some would argue that this edgy material is an acquired taste, leather is always sure to create an amazing look when done right. Leather is used for accessories, pants, shirts, shoes and, my personal favorite, jackets. A great leather garment will last you years on end. Leather accents are always amazing for the fall and winter seasons and are sure to spice up an outfit that would otherwise be considered simple.

I spotted this Fashionista leaving her apartment early one chilly morning on the way to class. This is a great outfit for class in the beginnings of winter—a simple, yet very stylish jeans-outfit. This Fashionista is sporting a great leather jacket, a T-shirt, a pair of dark-wash jeans and a pair of combats. The central elements of this outfit are definitely the jacket and the boots. The jacket is keeping her warms while still keeping her fashionable and edgy. The combat boots are also leather and create an edgy, military-like essence to the outfit. As a girl that loves all things black, all things edgy and goes ga-ga for a great leather jacket, I was quite excited.

A leather jacket is a must-have for every girl. Whether it’s black or brown, cropped or tailored, a leather jacket is a piece that, like a good pair of boots, will last you countless years. However there are girls who simply are not fans of leather. If you’re one of these girls, try going for a jacket that makes a similar statement; a military-like jacket would be perfect. Also, when it comes to combat boots, I know for a fact that not every Fashionista loves these. As an alternative, you can always stick with a pair of fabulous knee-high boots or ankle booties to have a similar winter effect. When it comes to accessorizing this outfit, the key is to stick within the theme. With this Fashionista, I would suggest a studded handbag to really illuminate that edgy factor. However, if a Fashionista wore a pair of simple knee-high boots, I would advise for a major statement necklace and some simple earrings. I adore this Fashionista because of how fantastically simple and accessible her outfit is. It’s a great example of an outfit for class that can be easily followed by any struggling Fashionista.
