Fashion Do: ANYTHING Leather
As I posted previously, one of the biggest trends this fall is leather (faux and real) moto jackets and vests. This trend seems to be expanding as more and more celebrities have been seen stepping out in leather leggings (AnnaLynne McCord above), shorts (Whitney Port above), dresses (Angelina Jolie above), and pants (Victoria Beckham above). While I don't really see myself in leather shorts this winter and, for those who know me, you know that I am not a huge fan of leggings, I do plan on breaking out my faux-leather skirt that I purchased from Nine West a few years ago. I think the key to this trend is to not overdo it with leather from head to toe or else you will look like you belong on the back of a Harley. When wearing leather on the bottom, leave the moto jacket at home!
