I have always been in love with leather, and my trips to the leather market in Florence have only increased my love of the beautifully soft material. I was first drawn to camel colored leather, and am still incredibly smitten by the camel leather jacket I got in Italy, and my camel leather work tote and matching wallet. Recently, I have started to grow fond of black leather as well. I used to think it was too harsh of a look for my style, but have found that it can actually be very feminine with the perfect hint of edge.
I am most intrigued by the different types of leather articles of clothing and accessories. Whether it be fabulous leather shorts, a layered leather skirt (this one is my favorite look), a classic leather jacket, or leather pants, leather is one of my new favorite looks for Fall.
I have personally found some of my favorite pieces from very affordable stores. Last year, I found the perfect leather jacket from Forever 21. This year, I have found a leather cap sleeved t-shirt and black leggings with pleated leather siding from Target. Although the leather is not real, it is affordable and looks just as chic as real leather!
