Fall Fashion Series: Ladies 'n' Leather

by Lauren

For round two of our Fall Fashion Series, we decided to take it to the streets (and alleys) to showcase one of our very favorite trends for fall: leather! We absolutely love rocking leather in every shade and style imaginable. We find that it takes ordinary outfits up a notch, adds just the right touch of sophistication, and also brings a "bad-ass" flair. Here's a couple of ways we are styling leather this season. 


Though I have always been a huge fan of leather, there is something in the air this fall that just begs me to pile it on! Let's be honest, we all love the "cool" feeling we get when we throw on our leather jackets to walk out the door. They are bold, edgy, and sexy at the same time, what's not to love? Red is also a color I've been mixing into my wardrobe lately. This high-necked red romper I chose is simple, yet ever classy. When paired with a leather jacket and leather shoes, it becomes a bit less tame. 


 One of my favorite things about fall is the darkening of my color palette when it comes to my wardrobe choices. This fall, I have found that my new go-to look is an all black ensemble that most likely includes leather. I can't even express in words how much I adore leather! For this look, I paired some leather pants, with another current fall favorite: floppy felt hats (something about a big hat really just brings out the diva in me. Spice would definitely agree! ha). These two items, complemented by a classic tweed jacket, create a sophisticated yet current look that can easily take me from day to night. I let my makeup be the source of color in this look by adding a classic bright red lip.


Where to get Spice's look: Black Leather Jacket (similar), Miz Mooz Black Wedges, Statement Necklace, Red Romper (bought in Sydney)

 Where to get Sugar's look:   Faux Leather Pants (similar), Sam Edelman Danielle Pumps, Tweed Jacket (similar), Lipstick 

Also want to give a special shout out to Grace Willis of True Grace Photography. We have absolutely loved working with this talented girl! We guarantee she's a lot more fun (and cute) than your photographer ;)
