Baby soft leather, the most luxurious of fabrics. Yet it is completely ignored as soon as spring has sprung! Leather refuses to be pushed to the back of your closet this year, infiltrating the spring collections from skirts to dresses, accessories and shorts! Miranda Kerr rocks her leather pieces in summer, now you can too!
Spring time leather can mean an all-over leather look, or subtle hints of the luscious fabric. For a stylish sprinkle, try a leather peplum worn over a summery silk singlet or casual tee. Leather tops with strategic cut outs are an ultra modern spin on classic leather. Try a body suit in a pale hue for a girly spring leather look, and pair with high waisted shorts or a cute skirt. Darker leather tops lend themselves to more formal events, with beautiful silhouettes in peplum and shirt styles an elegant alternative to traditional cotton and silk.
An all-over leather look is stunning as a fresh take on spring style. Try a cute shift or high waisted dresses in baby soft, lightweight leathers to stay cool in the warming sun. Love your leather pants but abandoned them for fear of dreaded leg sweat? Try leather shorts! In hues from aubergine to charcoal, leather shorts are a fun way to leather up your legs without the heat. From high waisted to loose fitting options, leather shorts are a cute spring spin on the leggy style.
From the leather tee to retro body suits, leather is everywhere this spring! Choose lightweight versions to avoid boiling up in the barely breathable fabric, and pair with bright spring accessories.
What leather look will you try this spring?
