I had a feeling that this was slowly ramping up, considering the past couple of seasons...

Just checked out a few emails from shopbop and neimans and both were showcasing leather pants (and some skirts), not to mention the ubiquitous leather jacket and those glamours over the knee leather boots.

I personally love how the designers have changed up the leather look from a decade ago. It's much more sexy and rock and roll. I know that leather jackets have always been popular, with the numerous Mike & Chris, Rick Ownes, etc. threads. So who's in on this trend and who's not really feeling it? How do you wear your leather (fill in the blank) to bring it up to date? Or do you plan on getting that special something that caught your eye?

IMO leather has always been really timeless. Think of the 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, etc... they all wore leather jackets esp with floral :heart: , that is my all-time favorate thing to do with leather, is pairing it with a nice floral top :smile:.

I agree that leather is timeless...I'm also seeing, along with the leather trend, the return (or has it ever left?) of fur. The fur vest (faux or real), seems to be the more popular incarnation of this trend. Not to mention paired with leather leggings and some chain necklaces or body chains. The whole look is very rock and roll. I may not be able to carry this look off, but it certainly looks scrumptious.

I like leather patches for fall :P

Not sure how I would feel about wearing leather all out, with the exception of leather leggings, and gloves.

I love a soft buttery leather skirt but I've had no luck cleaning leather cloting if they get spilled on...thrown out *quite* a few expensive leather skirts in my time, so I'm gonna pass...leather coats or jackets only for me....no skirts or pants!

Hmmm. I think the really far-out city people have wore fur vests all along. If I was to be all far-out (I would if I could, town reasons) I would deff wear fur vests. I have this ambition to move to the city and wear whatever I want and not be judged.

The only leather I will be wearings is boots and bags. Personally, leather jackets are a bit too biker for me. (even the most eligant). And pants I just wouldn't wear.

I'm not feeling it yet over the leather pants. Put it on once during a night out and stopped wearing after that because it's so uncomfortable. Now, I'd love to have a leather skirt.:tender: Hope it'll be comfortable.
