Fall Fashion: Leather

Leather has got to be my favorite trend for fall. Lately I've found myself fawning over leather skirts, dresses, jackets, and tops, along with tons of other leather embellished pieces. (See my fall wishlist here.) I'm sure you'll be seeing me in a lot of other leather looks this fall, but I wanted to start off with something very wearable. 

I'm not sure you'd catch me in a full on leather skirt for work, but the leather trim on this skirt allows it to be both fashion forward and totally work-appropriate. To keep the skirt as the focus, I paired it with a simple v-neck tee and black d'orsay pumps. This style of shoe is all over the place for fall, as it was during summer. Mine are from Zara last winter, but I found lots of identical options here ($29), here ($65), here ($90), and here (in trendy blood orange $30).

I have 4 faux-leather jackets, but this one in a dark maroon shade is my favorite. I tend to like the bomber style on me as opposed to moto, but I've reached a point where I'd like to try a leather jacket with a motorcycle edge after buying this denim moto jacket from Gap.

What leather piece are you craving for your fall wardrobe? A jacket? Pants? A skirt? Let me know!

  6. I like this entire look; from the jacket to the shoes. The bold color of the jacket is just gorgeous, against the gray and black.

  17. Ooo, definitely loving this look! The perfect mix of edge and sophistication, I SO need a leather jacket!! I'd have to say that would be first on my wishlist for leather, but I'm really loving the leather peplum tops I've seen floating around on Pinterest! :)

  25. Stopping by via the Three-fer Thursday link up! I have a similar skirt from The Limited but there's a leather panel down the front and back and the sides are ponte knit which makes it nice and stretchy and super comfortable... I've pushed the envelope at work with it and thankfully no discussions w/ HR ;)

  30. I remember that Limited skirt! When I bought mine I was still a little leather-shy so I went with the more subtle leather trim on the sides.

  31. Love those heels and the leather strips on the sides of your skirt! I totally have a leather jacket just like this one too! Haha.
