We grown-up, real-life women don’t need the runway (although it is fun to watch): we’ve got our own fashionistas, of all ages, every week at Visible Monday. For example, leather and suede are Fall classics and it looks like this week the Visibles brought it. From blazers to skirts and dresses, these awesome women rocked their leather and suede pieces.
Personal note: as a vegetarian, I have a conflict about wearing leather. I will buy and wear second-hand leather and suede, but I try to keep my new purchases to faux, except for shoes. My feet really need leather to function properly, as it breathes and expands. But no judging, you wear whatever you love and suits you.
As always, the first tip is: wear your leather and faux-leather when you want to, styled the way you like it, and own it.
And there’s always room in my closet for a Fall classic:
Andrea from Living On Cloud Nine wears a fabulous crimson leather blazer with a houndstooth scarf for accent. I think this color jacket is almost a neutral. See another great-looking suede jacket on Jess at Elegantly Dressed and Stylish.
Jill of Doused In Pink is lovely in a suede sleeveless dress. Jill shows it with a classic ivory blouse underneath, and it can be worn any number of ways – over leggings, under a big sweater or tweed blazer, e.g. Her necklaces are wonderful too:
Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style looks amazing in a red leather pencil skirt, made dressy with a sheer blouse and open-toe booties. She says the blouse isn’t comfortable to wear often, but I hope we’ll be seeing this skirt again. See BiTi of Pret-A-Vivre for another cool leather skirt look.
Suzanne of Suzanne Carillo is brilliant in rich leather accessories – black knee boots and gloves. That velvet coat is swoon-y too.
Anna of Anna’s Island Style is wearing a fitted and cropped tan leather jacket, and vintage suede flare trousers, and looking terrific. She says the trousers were purchased years ago for a princely sum, and well worth it. Agreed.
How do you like to style your leather pieces for Fall?
Here’s more fab looks for any age, inspired by the Visible women:
