Leather is an essential of any good wardrobe, it has proven its functionality (and coolness) over the years, and if I had to choose one piece that is worth investing in, it will most definitely be a leather one. I do recommend if, like me you are trying to build a functional and timeless wardrobe (free of too many trends) leather is a must. I have no reservations when it comes to purchasing such a piece, I will save up for a year, if thats what it takes (quality over quantity).
Leather can be classic, cool, edgy or rebellious. It creates a beautiful contrast of textures against other materials and it looks sharp when paired together. I treat myself to one leather piece a year, let that be a pair of shoes, a bag or a jacket - it ages well and it is always in. I wear my leather pieces all year round, sometimes layered when it is winter or showing some skin when in the summer. Also, as you can see here I am certainly not afraid to wear leather on leather. This post is dedicated to my friend Mae who started the conversation that led to this week's style topic: to leather or not to leather.
