Trend For Fall 2012: It’s All In The (Leather) Details

July 31, 2012 • Fashion, Fashion Blog, Trends

I subscribe to the theory that less is more. Particularly when it comes to leather. So I think a little bit of leather can go a long way. Thankfully touches of leather and leather detailing are popping up in unexpected ways in both apparel and accessories for Fall 2012. Mind you, so is head-to-toe leather, but we will touch upon that trend in a future post. Today we are focusing on how a little leather mixed with your cashmere sweater or plaid jacket can take your from expected to edgy. Even adding a little leather to that boring dress you never wear in a Sunday DIY project just might be the answer for transforming some of your wardrobe. Now I am not suggesting you mangle everything in your closet, but by adding a leather collar or pocket you can go from drab to fab! For those of us who just don’t have the time or inclination, here are 10 items with leather details we are loving at this moment:
