The leather look (or let's face it, for some of our budgets - faux leather look) is one of my favorites this fall. I know you've already seen my leatha skinnies a coupla times, and I'm warning you that you should just prepare yourselves to see them A LOT, because I love them. Found a great post on My Daily Style (who has sick and amazing style herself) here on the influence of leathers this season. Check it for more eye candy, but I swiped - I mean BORROWED - most of the photos below from it.
What is more iconic that Kate Moss in red leather, pirate whites, and a frigging LEOPARD PRINT CHANEL JACKET? So effing Mick Jagger cool. I personally don't think I would do red leather, but the rest of this ensemble? Count on it.
What I love about all of the above outfits is that if you replace the leathers with say, cropped black wool cigarette pants, they all become very ladylike, classic looks. I love that the leather roughs them up, gives em a bit of the sexy time, yet without the skank factor.
While the above look from Aureta's Blog isn't leatha pants, her Gucci OTKs (poor girl) give the same look. I LOVE this photo, and how it looks almost like she's in a coffin, the way she's framed and positioned in that archway. If you want a hit of insane jealousy over her wardrobe (pristine vintage and designer EVERYTHING - I assure you, there is no Target here - shot in amazing locales) be sure to check her blog, and then wonder where you went wrong with your choices in life...
