Spring 2013 Trends: SPRING LEATHER

It’s almost Friday, my sweet readers and I finally got to see the sun after many, cold and cruel days of thunder. Couture week just wrapped up, NYC is getting ready for the Fashion Week kick-off and as February approaches, so does Spring (I can’t way to put away those heavy coats and get some decent color on my ghostly legs). We are halfway through with our Spring 2013 report, there are so many fabulous trends to cover and I plan on giving you an extensive and detailed coverage of each and every one of them. This is the sixth post from the series and one that I personally adore: LEATHER.  It’s been a while since leather took over the Spring runways (years ago, we only got to see this beauty on the Fall catwalks) and each season, we get positively surprised by the designers and their take on it.

For the coming season, possibilities are endless. There’s the trouser mania. Not your usual black, leathery leggings, but slouchy pants, tapered ones, joggers, neutral colors, bold shades. Dresses: a beige leather dress paired up with a floral jacket or an embroidered cardigan is a must! The barely there garments: whether you choose a pair of drawstring shorts, a sexy bodycon mini or some naked sandals, you’ll be rocking those legs all the way! Perforated leather garments are pure works of art so score one while they are out there! Last but not least, light leather outerwear can add a fabulous twist to your breezy, Spring ensembles.

WHO DID IT?

  • Ferragamo / Jason Wu / Versace
  • Mugler / Giles / Miu Miu

MUST-HAVE PIECES: The nude jacket, perfect companion for those Spring, windy nights. The trousers, worth investing in them. The barely there, leather sandals (sexy as hell). A leather top, a fun twist for your daily outfits.
