There is no question that warm-weather leather is a summer statement, which makes it the perfect transitional focus for fall. We all like to indulge in a trend here and there, and it can be fun to play with something fresh to see how just a few choice items can completely transform your wardrobe.
Skinny Leather Pants: So you took the plunge and finally bought a pair of fabulous skinny leather pants. Now what? For a sharp weekend look, pair it with a boyfriend-style oxford, an eclectic cuff, and a leopard-print flat for a little bit of flash.
