Editor's note: The following is a guest post written by Rachel Zoe, stylist, fashion designer, and creator of The Zoe Report. This week Rachel shows us her favorite leather picks.
As we transition deeper into Fall, the demand for leather is on the rise! One of the most stylish and versatile textiles, this season designers have gone above and beyond the leather jacket to give us leather dresses, shirts, handbags, and everything. Intrigued? Let's talk about how to work the tough fabric into your wardrobe . . .
The easiest and most accessible leather goodies come in the form of footwear and arm candy, so my first instinct is to reach for a pair of sky-high leather wedges or a leather envelope clutch to add depth to any look. Ba-na-nas. Next, I love a leather shirt or shorts — paired with opaque tights — for an unexpected day-to-night ensemble. Wear leather shorts with a sheer blouse, blazer and open-toe booties . . . or a leather shirt with skinny jeans and platform pumps — both wardrobe choices are flawless. Finally, I could never forget a classic leather jacket. Whether you rock an older worn-in piece that is already in your closet or one of this season's coveted shearling leather jackets, the outerwear option is the perfect substitute to a blazer — an irreplaceable in your closet from Fall to Winter and beyond. Loves it. No matter how you choose to wear leather this season, just dive headfirst into the trend and don't look back. xoRZ
