The spring runways showed a surprising amount of dark colors, especially black. But, if you think about it, no one can go wrong wearing black. It can, however, be tricky to find the appropriate black leather garments and accessories to match your personality and style.
While black leather is sometimes a reference to biker chic, there are ways that every fashionista can embrace the edginess of this trend. For those with a more delicate sense of style, incorporating a black leather pencil skirt with the usual printed cardigan or blouse and colorful pumps adds interest. And biker-inspired jackets are the perfect way to spice up a floral dress. Bold fashionistas might feel more comfortable wearing several leather pieces at a time. Leather dresses, biker jackets, sandal boots, and fingerless gloves with loud details (including silver studs, exposed zippers, and open backs) provide definite ways to make a statement.
No matter your style, leather is a definite must for your wardrobe!
