Sure, the leather jacket is a fall staple, but new shapes have recently popped up to help us reimagine what leather pieces could look like. From culottes to fitted dresses, incorporating leather into a look has never been easier, and we’re here to show you the endless styling possibilities.
While black and brown have been the go-to colors, a variety of eye-catching shades have also found their place on the runway and on the streets — making for a host of creative and exciting ensembles. We did the research and uncovered your most searched queries — you want to know how to wear leather pants, leather blazers, and skirts — and yes, these are all very different articles of clothing. (Because we love options!)
Based on some effortlessly styled outfits we spotted on the streets, we’re breaking down the basics and offering up advice for working leather into your outfit any way you choose. In fact, there are enough ideas here to experiment with, so you’ll find yourself playing around with all the different leather-effect pieces in your wardrobe. Of course, we do recommend shopping for vegan or faux styles in an effort to feel good about your purchases and also go easy on your wallet.
Even if you’re not excited to wear leather from head to toe and you prefer just a touch, there are plenty of ways to do that. Scroll on for some of our go-to styling solutions, and shop some essentials to help you pull them off.
