Hey Fashion Darling! Fall is here and fall is an exciting time for fashion because it allows all of us to get creative. When the weather turns cool it is time to layer, love by a fireplace, and look amazing in ankle booties, boots, color trends and flattering sweaters.
While styles change constantly, one fabric that makes its way back to the runway year by year and onto popular Pinterest boards is leather. Leather is one of those select items in your closet that is often purchased but also overlooked when it comes to working it into your everyday style. Normally, when we think of leather we think of bikers, rockers, and weekend warrior women dawning leather minis in the club or rocking bomber jackets in the streets of New York. I want you to reconsider those popularly held beliefs by adding some leather to your workplace wardrobe. Here are some practical tips to let your leather WERK at Work for you!
Choose your leather wisely for work!
Be aware of fit and function. Leather is the type of fabric that doesn't have much give as far as function so if you are in a confined space or have to move around a lot a leather pencil skirt might not be an option for you. However, no worries a free-flowing pleated skirt that allows you the freedom to move will give you an instant corporate chic look.
Add a professional dress shirt.
When rocking leather at work you want to still have a polished perfect professional look. Nothing says" take me serious" like a button down dress shirt. Make a statement by incorporating a contrasting color that keeps your look crisp and chic all at the same time.
Add attention grabbing accessories.
Wow your clients/customers with attention grabbing accessories that not only make you stand out but lets others know you are a woman about business. You can soften your leather item by adding girly, fun, fashion-forward accessories that adds instant JUSHHH to your look.
Add shoes with an attitude.
By adding a closed toe shoe with a little personality you are sure to walk into work with the right attitude to get the job done for the day. A classic pump with color instantly will have you standing 2-4 inches taller than the competition with confidence.
