Touch of Edge

Want to add a trendy touch to your go-to evening look? Look to add some leather for a trendy and edgy feel. Leather has been seen on celebrities all over Hollywood lately evolving from leather jackets to more modern pieces such as fitted leather dresses and leather skirts. Sometimes leather pieces can be tricky. If worn with the wrong pieces your look can turn from classy to trashy! To prevent a fashion disaster, keep these tips in mind! Make sure if the hem of the skirt or dress is shorter, look to cover-up a little more on top, either with longer sleeves or a higher neckline. Because a leather dress is such a statement piece by itself, keep accessories minimal. Going overboard can can damper an otherwise great look. Not ready to completely plunge into the leather trend? Start small with leather accessories such as leather booties, leather cuff bracelets or wide banded leather belts. Or instead of going for a classic black, try an updated shade such as a neutral beige or even a bright orange! Want to add a feminine flair to your edgy look? Combine a lace top in a feminine shade with a fitted leather skirt or add a girly animal print bag!
