Leather's New Look for Fall
by Fashion Stylist Lakeysha-Marie

Leather underwent a makeover of sophistication for Fall ‘09 with blazers, sleek skirt suits, and modern dresses for a look that’s edgy-chic.

Thankfully, this must-have-look for fall is a versatile addition that can be easily worked into almost any wardrobe. The key to successfully wearing this trend is to create balance between texture and color for maximum wear-ability.

The Basics: Creating a Sophisticated Edge

Skirts: A leather skirt that hits just above the knee is a stylish, yet functional way to incorporate this trend into your day look. Pair it with a knit top or soft blouse for a modern look that’s appropriate for both work and play.

Jackets: Leather blazers are perfect for infusing boldness into almost any look. A fitted leather blazer worn over a tailored top and flat front trouser epitomizes the urban chic seen on the Fall ’09 runways. And for the fashionably laid back, a leather blazer/jacket always looks great worn over a cozy knit and your favorite jean.

Dresses: A leather dress is a great statement piece whether worn night or day. A soft leather dress paired with a knit jacket and boots is an easy fall day look. For a glamorous night look, pair your leather dress with metallic accessories to create a stylish edge.

Lastly, don’t forget to incorporate an element of color to your leather selection this Fall ’09 season. The muted shades as seen at Bottega Veneta add a sophisticated air and work well for a polished look, while the bold red leather as seen at Prada is perfect for those who just want to have fun.
