Celebs are frequently spotted in leather jackets and leather pants, but we particularly love how these six celebs freshened the trend by working leather tops into their wardrobe. Nicole Richie recently doubled up on leather by pairing a laser-cut Winter Kate top with matching Helmut Lang pants, while Minka Kelly roughed up her floral Dolce & Gabbana denim via a cropped leather J Brand top. Leather tops — real or faux — are quickly becoming a staple in every A-lister's closet, and they should be in yours too, so shop our picks to find the style that best suits you.
Leather tops have become a hot ticket item this season thanks to Phoebe Philo at Celine, Jenni Kayne, Derek Lam, and Jason Wu. Try the look out with neutral hues and bold accessories for a minimal vibe, or take it up a notch with leather leggings and moto boots. Either way, our slick picks — ranging from a faux leather wrap vest to a simple caramel-hued tee — from Maje, MM Couture, and Urban Outfitters — will help you get there.
