This fall, it’s all about street style — edgy, sexy and rock-chic leather. From being just practical winter wear, the fabric is quickly becoming a fashion staple amongst fashionistas this season. Be it B-town belles or Hollywood hotties, fashion-conscious women are exploring this trend from all aspects.
If you have that old, rusty leather jacket hiding somewhere inside your closet, it’s time you dig it up and flaunt it with style just like Bollywood’s most bankable actor of this year, Sonakshi Sinha. Sonakshi looks casual chic in light denim and a Starbucks t-shirt paired with super-hot leather jacket and a pair of funky specs.
However, that is not the only way you can wear leather. While the desi B-town divas have stuck to leather jackets and leather skinnies, tinseltown beauties glam it up by incorporating it in sophisticated dresses, polished peplum tops and structured A-line skirts. Zero Dark Thirty actor Jessica Chastain looked stunning in an electric blue Jason Wu leather dress. Even Feeha Jamshed’s collection for PFDC features some leather accents in her black and white dresses.
While the cut was fun and flirty, the material and the unusual colour added real funk to her look. If wearing a head-to-toe leather outfit is not your thing, use leather as an accent in individual pieces — leather shoulder pads, leather panels or leather accessories. Watching celebs experiment with leather in vivid colours, we can’t help but fall in love with this versatile, snappy rich fabric!
