We like fashion but would never use the word “edgy” to describe my sense of style. And let’s face it–leather pants, skirts, and tops can seem a little edgy. We are not definitely not musical enough to join the cast of Grease, but decided that this is the year we’d prove that even we could pull off wearing leather. And if we can wear leather anyone can, because we’re basically the least edgy person to exist since the dawn of time. Anyone can rock a fantastic leather skirt or top. Or pants. Or even a jacket. It all comes down to finding the right piece and pairing it with the right accessories.The Hunt
We ventured to Nordstrom Rack in search of some budget-friendly (and stylish) leather pieces. The goal was to find two items of clothing as opposed to accessories, because styling a leather handbag isn’t really a challenge. We tried on lots of great pieces–lots of leather and beautiful leather details–a trend we hope to embrace this fall. There’s nothing more chic than a jacket with leather details!Leather for Everyone
We thought we’d have to dress leather up and never would have imagined wearing it during the day, but the top paired with skinny jeans and flats didn’t feel edgy at all. We dressed the skirt down with a pair of booties and simple black sweater but could easily dress it up with a pair of heels a great top. That’s 3 leather pieces, my friends. We love that by changing a piece or two, both the top and skirt can easily transition from day to night. In the end, we learned that leather is actually very versatile since it can be dressed up or down. So if you find yourself wanting to try leather this fall, go for it. Like we said–if we can pull it off, you can, too.
