Since circa 2008, leather has been prominent in my closet. Over the years I’ve collected so many leather-based articles of clothing that it would probably be easier for me to tell you what in my closet is NOT leather. Depending on how you assemble your outfit, leather can be incorporated into so many different types of style.
But the one thing about leather that keeps me reaching for more is how it makes me feel. You’d think I was having a love affair with a fabric…I might be. It always makes me feel effortlessly chic and totally badass. There’s a sexy edge to it that I just love. And just because it’s edgy doesn’t mean it’s trendy. I am very much NOT into trendy. Blegh. Leather is classic, mark my words.
One of the leather pieces that I consistently replenish in my wardrobe every season is the leather mini. I wear it so often that I have to buy a new one almost every 6 months. You can literally pair it with anything and don it in every season. It’s ~*mAgiCaL*~ people.
To keep a leather mini from turning into slut city during the day-time, I like to pair it with other classic basics. You know, keep it simple. I threw on this J. Crew t-shirt that I LIVE in, my high-top Vans, some basic gold jewelry (especially loving this Gorjana necklace) and voila! Easy peasy. The leather speaks for itself so you don’t want to overdo it in the rest of the outfit.
