Leather was one of the biggest trends on the fall 2012 runway. A leather jacket never goes out of style and is easily worn with dresses or jeans, fancy or casual, but fall took the minimalist look to new heights. Proenza Schouler played up the Lisbeth Salander look with gothic make up and head-to-toe baggy leather. Yves Saint Laurent was all about sophisticated and form-fitting leather blazers, skirts, and boots, while Helmut Lang created beautiful leather jackets for winter paired with leather leggings. No matter how you want to wear the skin, it is appropriate for top or bottom, jacket or shoes, and everything in between! Skintight leather skirts are great for night, but a pleated brown leather skirt with heels and an Oxford is a work-appropriate and fashionable look. Have fun and feel good in your skin!
