Must-Buy Trend | Leather Sleeves

Leather arms are one of the most fashion forward trends this Winter.We have been seeing a great deal of street style stars working leather into their outfits in new and unexpected ways. Leather sleeves toughen up even the most lady-like coats and jackets. I have been personally seeing the leather sleeves with the army jackets almost everywhere I Look, and I must say, I like what I see!

The key to this look is to contrast textiles to give your closet an edgy, designer feel. 3.1 Philip Lim for example, showcased contrasting tan leather sleeves with electric blue cotton torso; this enhanced the clashing fabrics, but kept it casual and appropriate for daytime.

  

 

Stella McCartney also showcased the look on her coats. The designer draped heavy square fabric on her models and enhanced the sleeves with shiny, black leather.

Maison Martin Margiela took the trend to extremes by clashing heavy knit sweaters with full-length leather gloves.

  

For a less runway more street style look, go for soft cotton tops and T-shirts in the daytime with black or gray. Keep colours fresh, bright and contrasting to enhance the style.

By no means do I ever try to pretend I know all there is about fashion, but isn’t that the beauty of it? Inspirations come to me daily, from people, colors, moods, photography, even children!

We don’t need to be millionaires, we don’t need to always have the latest and most luxurious brands, but we will always need to feel beautiful. I believe in simplicity even with my most extravagant dress on. Less is sometimes more in my fashion eye. I love funky, I love colors, I love elegance, and I love class. Fashion is not something I do, it has become a part of who I am. This is me, and my life in the fashion lane…
