Leather isn’t just for rock stars. It’s something everyone will, at some point, embrace. It keeps you warm and it looks undeniably sexy. With chic shine, leather takes the cake when it comes to making a bold statement. Whether you wear it with a grungy twist, or with a classic clean finish, this look will adjust to your mood and personality.
Leather can have a tough image, so when buying leather pants it’s nice to show off some strappy or a fun pair of heels to balance out the look. This gorgeous slim leg leather pant is the ultimate winter essential. The Burgundy color goes well with cooler weather and with its on-trend deep hue counterparts.

Need a sexy skirt? This one is a sassy long number, but it is short enough to expose some calf and flaunt some subtle upper leg thanks to the side slit. Try this skirt with a high boot or booties. This skirt was executed perfectly to create a “wow” factor.

It’s hard for me to shop for boots right now, living in 85-degree San Diego weather. But, the fall season and cooler air calls for some easy to walk in boots that keep you warm and stylish. I love this boot, and it comes in both regular and wide widths to cater to more women. My favorite is the tan color -- it is phenomenal and really stands out.

This leather jacket has a nice longer silhouette, without requiring a belt. I just bought a different version of this jacket in order to add a longer-length leather jacket to my closet for variety. This stunning jacket’s length will allow you to wear it with thicker leggings.
