Leather on the Legs

Whether your style is biker, boho, or business, you can't go wrong this season with a little leather on your legs!

"Every body type and every age can wear leather. It's about incorporating it into your wardrobe in a way that's right for you," says stylist Wendy Norwood Patterson.

Here are a few of her tips:

  • If you like Boho& try a tobacco-colored leather jean with a floral print silk tunic. Then, added a faux fur vest to anchor the whole look.
  • For a more business look& try a leather pencil skirt with a black, sheer silk top, then added a tweed blazer.
  • If you're a beginner& try a tunic with leather leggings.
  • In the winter& try leather leggings with a sheer tunic, topped with a big, cozy sweater.
  • If you're bold& swap your leather leggings and tunic for leather pants. Pair them with a sheer shirt, fitted blazer, and faux fur vest. Layer, layer, layer!
  • If you like to a trouser pant or a leg that's a little looser, wear your wider leather pants with a structured top or something fitted on top.
  • For day time, try suede shorts with flats and a sweater.
  • For night, wear your same suede shorts with a shimmery top and heels.
  • Always mix textures!
  • Don't mix leathers unless the colors are very different.
