8 Reasons Why Leather Isn't Over

Jul 14 2014 - 4:30am

In the Summer, we tend to refrain from wearing leather. Maybe it's because we anticipate the heaviness of the luxe material, or maybe it's because we feel as though we'd be breaking a fashion rule [1]. But our favorite fashion bloggers disregard all preconceptions when it comes to street style. And that's exactly why we look to them when we're planning our outfits. After all, taking a sartorial risk and having a little fun [2] is the name of the game.

So this week, we're pulling out our leather and taking cues from the looks below. As these leading ladies prove, when it comes to sporting your sleek separates in the heat, it's all about the rest of your ensemble. Trust your loose graphic tee, your cutoffs, or your open sandals to keep you cool, and you can be sure that they will.
