This Fall, A Little Leather Goes A Long Way: Shop The Leather Accent Trend Now
July 30, 2012
For fall, designers decided to adorn their pieces with leather, a popular accent of choice applied onto anything from outerwear to dresses. The material adds a sense of edginess and rebellion to any garment. It’s an interesting touch to certain parts of dress that we wouldn’t expect, including leather sleeves, leather piping or trim, or even leather pockets. Alberta Ferretti and Ruffian placed leather on dresses and tops, while DKNY accented the collar of a military-inspired coat. Just Cavalli applied leather on multiple styles, such as blazer-like jackets and thigh-skimming frocks.
