Toughen Up Spring Looks with Leather

Leather looks set to be one of spring 2013`s hottest trends so why not give it a go and add a couple pieces to your wardrobe. Designers featured a fair amount of leather on the runways from colourful structured tops and skirts to sleek colour blocked trousers. You can even take a fresh approach to cocktail dressing with certain essentials or keep things cool with a peplum top, skirt or shift dress. Plus who could forget the trusty leather jacket which doesn`t seem to tire in the fashion world, proving to be a wardrobe staple for many women.

Even if you think wearing leather throughout spring and into summer is taking things a bit too far, you can`t help but be intrigued. Wearing this type of fabric when there is a chill in the air seems natural but do women really want to bare the brunt of this trend when temperatures start to rise? It`s hard to say really, but I`m sure there will be a fair number of us who won`t be able to resist the allure of sporting leather infused pieces next season.

Warehouse is a great place to start the hunt for gorgeous leather separates proving you don`t have to sweat it out in a full head-to-toe getup to be in style. The Strappy Dress is the perfect fusion of sexiness and sophistication. It is a real statement piece and will be sure to make an impact when worn. Accessorise wisely with a simple clutch and heels. Another great choice is the Full Skirt which is made from realistic faux leather and gives off a full skater style shape. It`s perfect for city girls and to toughen up t-shirts and knitwear during the day and an embellished top for the evening. High heeled ankle boots will look best with this wardrobe staple.
