One of my favorite pieces to wear is leather. Genuine or faux – don’t care. Leather just makes any outfit instantly edgy and adds texture. It is most often associated and most worn in the winter, but I love wearing it throughout the whole year. Here are a few ways I “summerize” (summerfy? Let’s just go with it) my leather- summer leather, if you will.
For me, as an Arizonian, leather pants just aren’t an option (sweaty… uh… everything?). So, I shove those into my winter storage and grab these babies instead. These shorts are breathable and super flattering. They have an elastic waistband which makes them so comfortable to wear; I’m all about those cozy clothes, people. A HUGE plus is they are also so affordable. I feel like affordable faux leather can be tricky. Sometimes it can look cheap and be very uncomfortable, so these shorts pass the test!
A leather bag is a another must-have. I’m partial to backpacks, and this is one of my faves. The material dresses up a look while the backpack style simultaneously dresses it down, making it incredibly versatile. I think I’ve run around in my workout clothes with this bag, and also gone out at night with it and it completely looked in place on both occasions.
Leather shoes are also so easy to wear in the summer. Sometimes its easy to associate leather shoes with boots and booties so these white mules are a pleasant surprise. These heels just fit the bill when it comes to comfort and wearability. The low heel makes the perfect day-night grab and they literally look good with EVERYTHING.
