Spring 2013 Fashion Trend: The Leather Gilet

May 29, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Trends


I am by no means what you would consider a ‘grunge girl’ In fact, I didn’t like the look in the 90’s when I was actually young enough to wear it, so I certainly don’t care for it now. However, one item I do find myself desiring is the leather vest. I prefer to call it the leather gilet since it sounds a little more refined and a lot less grungy. You will notice leather gilets moving from spring into summer as a way to incorporate some ‘must-have’ leather into your lighter wardrobe. Wear your leather vest over a sleeveless dress or with dressier shorts and a tee. You just might find it to be more versatile than you imagined. Here are 10 leather gilet options, but move fast! They are selling out!
