Love all things leather but are too afraid to try it out in fear of looking like you busted out from backstage at an 80's rock band concert? You certainly are not alone. Recently though, leather has become a major fashion statement all the way from celebs in Hollywood to the streets across the US. Leather, when paired with some basic pieces (and no metal spikes) can actually have a charming, feminine touch. Leather is great all year round, but especially in January it can be a refreshing way to vamp up any wardrobe at the start of the new year for a funky yet feminine look. Need a little inspiration? Check out the pictures below for some perfect examples of how to rock an "oh so edgy" but now "incredibly chic" leather ensemble.
Go ahead and try it. I promise you don't have to come out looking like an 80's hairband member, a vampire slayer, or a mobster (unless of course that's the look you are going for... which by all means can be pulled off with leather too). Have fun, experiment, and create a look that is uniquely you.
