As you already know, I am 100% obsessed with leather. #LeatherWeather might even trump #SweaterWeather in my list of fall fashion must-haves!!
Aside from leather pants, which are no longer exclusive to rock-inspired wardrobes, leather details can now be seen on everything from cardigans, sweaters, coats, and tops, to shorts and (of course) shoes. Here are my favorite ways to wear leather this season.
LEATHER PANTS + SNEAKERS
Make a bold choice with your leather pants by pairing them with a cool sneaker. Chanel set the tone for this trend, and fashionistas rushed to adopt it. My style tip: Add a bold, oversized coat to your look to make it even trendier. For something a bit more casual, get inspired by Harrison of Gilty As Charged and how she wears her leather pants!!
LEATHER + ANKLE BOOTS
Ankle boots are super hot right now, and you can't go wrong by pairing them with leather pants or skirts. For casual looks, go with a low heel. Throw on a suede pair for date night to go check out the holiday lights. Jenny's funky ankle boots bring a mod vibe to her outfit that I am loving!!

LEATHER PANTS + PONCHOS
Ponchos are super cool and chic. Every time I put mine on, it instantly brightens my day and makes my outfit so much more fun. They look great in fall colors, but also make for a staple piece in neutral colors. The best part is you can absolutely dress up a poncho with the right heels and jewelry to make it night-time appropriate. With a simple change of shoes, Molly's look goes from day to night!

LEATHER + ANIMAL PRINT
Animal print's rich texture makes it perfect for cold weather (think vests, shawls and shoes). Add some extra sass to your animal print by pairing it with leather in the form of a jacket or pants (or both!) My style tip: When wearing an animal print accent piece, try to stick to a monochromatic look everywhere else. That way the print really sticks out and your outfit doesn't look too busy. Jessie balances her cheetah vest perfectly!!

My main style tip when it comes to #LeatherWeather is to layer, layer, layer!! Leather is super chic, but make sure you play it up to keep from wearing an otherwise boring outfit.
