We usually associate leather with cooler seasons like fall and winter but this summer, it’s proving to be a huge trend with camel toned pieces, and gold attributes. Spotted on all the runways from A.L.C., to Alexander Wang, everyone can feel the leather love for summer 2012. But how to incorporate the look of leather in your wardrobe for the warm weather can be tough so we have a few tips and tricks of the trade to keep you trendy for the season, and still able to transition to the fall again!
The Leather Vest
Leather vests are always a great way to go during sizzling summer heat because they can be worn over just about anything from dresses, to tanks and cutoffs. We love this vest, as it’s simple enough to make a great summer statement as well as a fantastic fall essential.
Accessories are always a great way to go with leather if you’re not into wearing it in your summer wardrobe. This bracelet is a fabulous summery look with the gold chain; throw it on with any outfit for a little extra edge.
Leather tanks and dresses are also a great way to go for warm weather. This piece is perfect for a summer night out on the town, and can easily be transitioned into cold weather with long sleeves underneath! Work this in with a breezy skirt for the day, or a pair of dark wash jeans and nude pumps for a chic downtown look.
Leather shorts were showing up everywhere last summer and our love for this look still hasn’t changed! These high-waist shorts are fantastic for summer with the wide leg to keep you cool and they make for a great casual daytime outfit. Bring the look back into fall with a pair of tights and boots underneath!
Always a must in any fashionista's closet! These leather wedges are perfect for summer with the peep-toe and the cork platform wedge!
