I’m having so many mixed feelings about Fall. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the slight chill in the air and the sudden appearance of all things pumpkin-flavored as much as the next person, but Fall always catches me off-guard at a time when I’m not quite ready to put away my summer favorites just yet. But there is one thing that I am looking forward to in the coming weeks: pulling out a few leather pieces. Incorporating leather into my look instantly upgrades my ensemble with an edgy flair and gives me so much life. I especially love adding on the layers and finding new and unique ways to make them part of my outfit. You can never go wrong with leather add-ons, am I right?
Feeling leather for Fall? Get into three looks that will take your wardrobe to the next level:
1. A Leather Moto Jacket
A closet staple, the leather jacket gets reworked every season and I am so here for it! Pair a graphic dress with a leather moto jacket and ballet flats for a relaxed, downtown vibe. A matching clutch and shades tie the look together.

2. A Leather Skirt
I’ll always have a warm and fuzzy spot in my heart for a leather skirt because it is the ultimate transition item. If you don’t have one in your closet, you’re committing the ultimate fashion sin. Mix in feminine elements with a heart print tee and statement clutch.
