There is something very cool about wearing leather because it’s not only stylish but also keeps you warm. Leather is such a great transitional item to invest in during this time of the year and has been one of my go-tos during Fall and Winter. In Fact, I have many leather pieces from tops, to leggings, pants, skirts, dresses and jackets. On today’s post, I’m showing you two ways to style your leather pieces this Fall.
I have a few leather jackets but this old BCBG black one is absolutely my favorite. This jacket can be worn with practically everything because of its color and the way it’s cut. Although this jacket is sold out, I’ve found a similar version that’s currently on sale, here. eWith leather jacket you don’t have to stick with the typical black or brown, there are many cool color options such as blue, burgundy and cream. The temperature has been up and down because duh it’s Fall and that’s what typically happens during this time of the year. I’ve been wearing shorts during the day and throwing on a leather jacket in the evening when the temperature drops. Also, how cool are these dad sandals? I’ve been living in them for over a month now, they’re very comfortable and goes with most of my casual looks.
Is leather was appropriate for work?
With the world back to being reopened, I have friends and family members who have resumed back to physically being at work. Have you ever wondered if leather was appropriate for work? My answer for you is Yes, Yes, Yes!!! I’ve spent most of my adulthood working in retail and have styled women in different walks of life. This included women working in traditional work settings and I want you to know that many have bought leather pieces to wear to work. Wearing leather to work can be a little tricky but it’s doable. Below are three styling tips you need when considering wearing leather to work.

Three Ways To Incorporate Leather Into Your Work Life:
Leather Skirts: opt for a midi skirt such as the one featured on today’s post or a longer length. You can never go wrong with a classic button up shirt or a turtleneck now that the temperature is dropping. If you get hot easily, consider wearing a mock turtleneck instead of the traditional version. I also love pairing blousy tops or even t-shirts styled with a cardigan or blazer with my leather skirts. The Shop Silhouette top I’m wearing today is perfect for a high waisted leather skirt, but if your workplace is very traditional, wear a nude cami under so your midriff isn’t out. I can get away with wearing this pearl skirt in a professional setting because it’s black on black. If this skirt is too busy for you, wear a plain leather skirt. I would recommend sticking to neutrals but if you want to step away from black and brown, try burgundy, tan or hunter green.
Leather Leggings/Pants: I wear a lot of these during Fall and Winter and they’re very versatile. They are also perfect for the workplace depending on how you style them. Leather pants can be worn either dressed up or down. When going for a dressy look, wear a hi-lo top, sweater, button up or t-shirt and you’re good too go. I would also suggest adding a chunky cardigan or blazer to complete the look. The top doesn’t have to be a neutral color, you can wear red, blue, leopard print- pretty much anything. For dress down Friday, if that still exists (lol), switch out the blazer with a denim jacket or wear an oversized sweater with your pants.
Leather Jackets: This can be paired with many things such as your dresses, pants and skirts. I would recommend a biker jacket like the one I’m wearing today or one that isn’t necessarily baggy or oversized. This makes the outfit look well put together in a traditional office setting
