Leather for Spring and How to Wear it

Not leaving the  fashion scene any time soon is leather.  If you didn’t invest in a piece last season, now is a good time to do it.  These new pieces are minimalistic in nature; a simple a-line skirt, a tank top or a sheath dress.  What’s great about all these spring pieces are that they are soft and supple, some are perforated or laser-cut making it easy to wear when it starts to get a little warmer.  DKNY made a great color blocked leather tank dress with a swing bottom that’s flirty and fun. Easy to wear with a bootie , wedge or single sole pointed toe heel. If you invested in leather for fall in a dark, rich color, pair it with a neutral or this season’s pastel hues to lighten the mood. But if you like the rocker look , a leather tank with skinny jeans in all black is the way to go like Ferragamo’s Spring 2013 collection.
