Trendspotting - Leather Trend Fall / Winter 2013

It's still very hot in my backyard but store stock is telling me otherwise. As I wandered my local Westfield yesterday, gone were the pastel and neon wedges, gone were the bright floral skater dresses and denim shorts that were signatures of Summer. In their place was a myriad of leather and suede boots, dark denim and leather! So today let's look at one of the biggest trends for Fall / Winter 2013.

Leather is key for the upcoming cooler seasons and I don't mean just the leather biker jacket we are all so used to throwing over an outfit to keep us warm. 2013 has reinvented leather into lighter, more feminine pieces that come in the form of dresses, tops, trousers and shorts. Easy to wear these pieces are designed to be staples in your wardrobe that can be mixed and matched.
All these pieces are available at

Jessica Alba recently hit the red carpet in an LBD with leather bust detail. Not everyone is confident enough to pull off a head to toe leather look so keep an eye out for leather insert details.
Olivia Wilde took my breathe away in this knee length leather LBD with laser cut lace details across the bust and sleeves. It's those little details that soften the overall look and make this so wearable and feminine.

Get your very own leather LBD with this super cute Tracy Reese leather peplum dress. A perfect trans-seasonal look you can start wearing this in the evening as summer winds down and layer it up with opaque tights and a blazer or swing coat in Winter.
Alternatively you can pair this Tinley Road faux leather peplum top with a pencil skirt for the office or a pair skinny jeans for a day out.
So ladies, don't be afraid of the leather trend. There is most definitely something for everyone!
