Leather has been around for quite a while now, but never before have we seen it used in such interesting & novel way. From panels on denim jeans, to shoulder inserts on shirts, leather is having quite a moment right now. You can say that leather is kind of growing up from its traditional leather jacket days. From Saint Laurent to Helmut Lang, the way leather is being used right now is quite remarkable.
I kind of think of this new way of wearing leather as an easy way to add some edge to your look. Not everyone is born to wear a tough biker jacket, so incorporating leather in a unique way is the best way to sport it while still maintaining a polished look. The juxtaposition of classic pieces like sweat pants, denim & casual shirts with leather is truly one of my favorite trends of the moment. For myself I've been enjoying adding that touch of edge to my look lately without going overboard and looking like the Fonz.
Check out some of the style picks below I personally picked out for you guys to rock this chic trend. So tell me, is this a trend you're fond of or does it belong in the realm of UGGS & other cringeworthy ideas?
