I have always been a HUGE fan of leather. My trusty Helmut Lang leather trousers (of which I have 3 pairs on rotation) are now somewhat of a second skin. I invested in my first pair of jeans the other day… although I can’t see to stay away from leather too long.
My favourite thing about these trousers is that you can wear them all year round.
(disclaimer “all year round – in most climates”- my dad did gasp in horror one year when I exited the plane, on arrival to a hot 105F Australian Summer’s day, in my leather trousers and had to peel them off of myself- literally.)
I love how recently girls are embracing leather in a more casual way. From Rumi Neely’s cool complete leather ensemble, Jane Keltner de Valle’s luxe full skirt, to Model Montana Cox’s ity bity Scanlon and Theodore shorts… everywhere I look, I am seeing leather all year round.
This Fashion Week, with SO many amazing pieces to choose from, who can say no to the leather?
