3 tips to rock leather for spring
Think you can't wear leather for spring? Think again! The classic tough girl fabric can be worn during this season of renewal, but you have to know how to rock it the right way. Here are some must-read fashion tips for wearing leather in the spring:
Opt for cropped versions
Leather can be thick and hot if you wear a boatload of the fabric, so stick to cropped garments. For example, a cropped sleeveless leather top is a great addition to a lightweight tank top. Then put on a high-waisted skirt and your look is complete.
If all-over leather isn't your thing, you can find garments with accents of the texture. For example, head to a used clothing store to find tops with leather sleeves or pockets. Bonus tip: Your ankle boots can count as a leather accent!
To tone down the look of a leather jacket, opt for a version in a hit springtime pastel hue. A soft pink leather jacket over a floral dress achieves the perfect girl-next-door look, but with a bit of an edge.
