VV Style Guide: How to Wear Leather
Whether you're stepping out to run errands or you're hitting a red carpet event, you can always rely on leather to glam up your look. Leather is a hot trend right now with celebs rocking the lustrous material in a myriad of ways. If you're at a loss about how to style leather for casual days or chic occasions check out our style guide below.
1. Dress it up
If you like the contrast of the sexy leather and flowy-fabric cut out dresses similar to the one Beyoncé is rocking above, try out this hi-low dress from Forever 21 or this little black dress from Bebe.
The key to Nicole Scherzinger look is the tweed/leather jacket. Tweed is typically thought of as a conservative fabric but when paired with leather the look is glam. Score a similar jacket like Nicole's from Vince Camuto.
Jennifer Lopez is fearless in this head-to-toe leather outfit. The style icon does a great job of rocking the leather pieces without letting them overpower her. If you want to fake the look of leather-all-over, slip on a pair of thigh-high leather boots.
2. Go casual!
Whether you're running to the bank or out to lunch with a friend, opt for leather pieces to look laid-back and trendy.
Rita Ora forewent a boring denim jean for chic leather pants. Style yours with a slouchy sweater or your favorite tee for a relaxed look. Grab a pair like Rita's from Urban Outfitters.
Rihanna also ditched the denim for red hot leather. If you find black too yawn-worthy, pair colored leather pants with a loose top and funky flats. Snag red leather jeans similar to Rih Rih's from Adriana Goldschmied.
For laid-back leather on top, slip into a trendy peplum top like Kim Kardashian's. The social-lite paired the chic top with light washed black jeans and metallic heels for a quick shopping trip. Swap out the metallic heels for flats for a more day-time friendly look. Snatch a peplum top like Kim K's from Urban Outfitters.
