Leather is one of those trends that I’m in love with but too much of a wuss to wear. I certainly would wear a leather jacket all the time if I could convince myself to invest in a nice one, but for some reason I haven’t gotten up the guts to go for it. It’s not like I’m talking about a full on leather catsuit, I’m talking about classy leather pieces. Guess I gotta man up.
What’s great about leather pieces is that they’re usually timeless. It’s a trend that is bound to come back, time and time again. This is why saving up for a nice leather jacket is worth it, you’ll be wearing it for years. Spend less on pieces you love right now but can’t see yourself wearing down the line (like metallic leather) and really go for timeless shapes. A leather pencil skirt might get more wear than a leather ruffled skirt but if you love them both then why not?
