Hot for Fall 2012: Leather

Right now it’s just hot. So I’m already dreaming of moving into cooler temperatures, pulling out my beloved leather leggings and skirts. Even paired with simple, low-key separates, leather provides just the right hint of bad girl in any outfit. It’s going to be everywhere this fall, and I can’t wait.

Do you wear leather, or faux? What pieces are you adding to your wardrobe for fall?


  1. Oh girl, I love the leather look! While I may not be bad enough for leather leggings, I am really on the hunt for a beautiful leather coat this winter. Hopefully in a style that can look sharp after a few more lost pounds (or in the worst case, if I gain a couple!).

    1. Thanks, Ashe! I’m hunting for the perfect leather jacket myself. Good luck on your search! And when you find the right coat, I can’t wait to see it on you!

    1. Thanks, Grace! Totally need leather shorts. Been looking at them for like two years now! Time to invest. Sounds like you got a great deal.

  2. Love your leather collection, and im loving all the leather looks this fall. I bought a leather skirt last year and wore it constantly, so I’d love another one. I’ve also been searching for the perfect, real, leather motorcycle jacket but haven’t been able to find o e that looks good on my figure. I’m hoping this is the season that piece finds its way into my wardrobe!

  3. Love leather…and only got to wear my leather Nicole Miller skinnies a couple times last season…so excited to bust them out! Hoping I can fit in them soon after baby…haha.
    Loving those leather shorts and planning to purchase a leather vest this season….still deciding between faux and real….we shall see..
    Happy Sunday.

    1. I’m sure you’re going to be back into those leggings in no time. You look beautiful…I know your big day is close, so wishing you a speedy delivery and a healthy little one!

  4. These luxe leather pieces (especially those Phillip Lim shorts) have me wishing for cooler temps and tights already! I’m hoping to get bolder when it comes to pairing different fabrics and textures with leather pieces this fall.

  5. I want to be one of those gals who can get away with a pair of leather pants, but I guess I can settle for the beautiful French Connection piece… Gotta love leather, so stylish and badass sexy!

    It is hot here love, you have to come back this way sometime…
    p.s The changes over here have spurred me on to make some changes to my blog too… Thanks koukla!

  6. Mmmm, that Mango jacket is gorgeous.

    I prefer faux leather just because I’m not a huge fan of the smell of the real stuff. I have also found some leather to be too stiff. I suppose it means it just needs to be worn in a bit.

  7. I seriously love the way leather looks. It’s just so perfect. I’m ok with real leather as long as it’s good quality, though I am perfectly fine with a superb faux leather. It just all depends, really!

  8. Oh yes, leather. I purchased a gorgeous Helmut Lang leather jacket this summer, from the pre fall collection that I simple fell in love with. It was a huge investment but I know it is going to be a good purchase in the long run. I’m also looking for a pair of great leather pants (after watching batman today I need to get my cat woman on). Love the idea of a dress too – Reiss have a fabulous black number for fall.

    Great ideas!

  9. Oh… love that jacket from Mango. Not sure if I’d be brave enough for those leather shorts though! I’ve got a leather skirt somewhere in my wardrobe, need to dig it out 🙂
