Fall 2013 Trends: Leather
The fashion world is in a frenzy with this week’s kick off NY Fashion Week — which means one thing for those of us not sitting front row in the Big Apple: trend watch. Celebrities and industry folk sit side-by-side, breath baited, watching as the haute couture reveal of the style savvy makes its way down the runway. From office to evening, Fall has always been a dramatic fashion affair, and this years top trends are no different.
Last Thursday we prowled our way through the leopard trend that’s topping nearly everyone’s to-do list, so today we’ll let you in on another ‘L’ words that you’ll L-O-V-E to L-O-V-E for Fall 2013: Leather.
Always a must-have topper in the Fall/Winter jacket department, this season’s leather is making it’s way on to shorts, skirts and particularly ladylike dresses by the likes of Dior, Michael Kors, and Altuzarra. Think the unlikeliest of strapless waist cinchers and fitted pencil style frocks all done up in motorcycle black leather and you’ll get the surprisingly feminine idea. Zip tops, leggings, and the typical boots, handbags, pumps, and belts and are also getting the leather treatment. So prepare to rev your engines for that most rock-n-roll of textiles this season — it’s going to be an ultra-chic ride.
