How to wear: Leather

Hello, hello, everyone! Hoping you had a great weekend. I'm still enjoying my vacation, as I only start college in a week. I'm super excited about that, but I also enjoy just doing basically everything I like all day..Haha! :)
One trend that's gonna be in this fall/winter and that I've seen people wear a lot is: the leather trend. Whether it's pants, jackets, shorts or any other item, there are a few ways you could style it and here I want to show you how I personally would style three different outfits with leather items.

How to wear leather: no.1

Outfit no.1: I like to pair leather pants with cozy knitwear basically. So an over sized knit is one of the best choices you could go for. I think going for items of clothing that are too tight with these leather pants would make the outfit look a bit tacky - but that's just my opinion. As for colors, I've been loving the mint color and plums and I think this is a nice combo, pretty subtle - nothing too crazy.


How to wear leather: no.2

Outfit no.2: Transitioning your dresses into fall be easily done with some cardigans or a leather jacket (like here). I love the plum color for the jacket and then everything else is brown based, so that it gives kind of a honey-warm feeling to the outfit. I would probably also add some tights, depending on the weather outside - just to keep me extra warm.


How to wear leather: no.3


Outfit no.3: And lastly we have a very casual outfit. I love knits and chunky scarves for this season and I really liked that owl-print on the sweater. As you can see, plum is also present in this outfit and then the leather jacket to top it off. As for boots, I love wedge ones and the color is just perfect for me.


So I hope this gave you some styling ideas! And do let me know: Which one is your favorite? And how would you style a leather item? :)

  3. I'm not too sure about wearing leather pants, but that third look is simply stunning!
    PS - I'm super jealous that you have a week before you start school. I'm procrastinating my homework right now, lol.
