Outfit Details: Earrings (Butterfly Beads), Headband (Ardene), Booties (Aldo), Everything Else (c/o Dynamite)
I remember seeing the initial comeback for leather about three years ago when I worked as a merchandiser, and it's amazing to see how it is now incorporated in entire outfits and through mixed media with other fabrics. People are still scared or not sure how to embrace this trend, and I think the best way to explore something is in small doses first.
Here I've paired this loose and flattering striped shirt with front faux leather leggings. I can't tell you soft they are! I have actually been on the hunt to find these type of panel leggings for a while and Dynamite has an excellent selection right now. You can get a pair like mine with the front leather, or you can try the side panel or even some funky triangle panel ones! I finished the look with a sparkly headband, diamond earrings and a quilted laptop bag (SO cute).
Dynamite has been one of my favourite shops for a very long time. It's the perfect spot to find trendy office-wear, but I really like their selection of dresses and casual tops as well. Whenever I go to the store, it's well-merchandised with the right colours spread throughout. I was thrilled to hear that Dynamite just launched their official online store! Goodbye, money. ;) This makes my life so much easier since I'm already an avid online-shopper.
I'd love to see how you would style leather for fall/winter! Tweet me a look or leave me a comment.
