Ahhh, leather. There’s nothing like the scent of expensive dead animal skin encasing your body or your money and nothing says “I want to dress like a dominatrix everyday!” this Fall than one of the season’s hottest trends. Whether you’re rocking killer boots, a biker hat reminiscent of Mr. Slave, or just that new handbag you’ve been slobbering over all month, now’s the time to invest in key pieces to leather-itize your wardrobe.
I seriously just died. If you’ve got the dirhams to spend, THIS is the piece to get! Not only are these fucking fabulous boots from Stefano Pilati’s last line for YSL, its the last of Yves Saint Laurent until that heretic takes over and changes the name to Saint Laurent Paris. Fuck you, Hedi, fuck you.
I’m totally calm now…
Anyway, like I was saying. Buy these boots, mkai. They’re sexy, slouchy leather with mirrored heels and rose gold accents and as a lifetime investment- they’re not such a horrible price.
This little number is something I, myself, have in black. Although, it comes in lots of fun hooker shades, too, if that’s your thing. At $125, this is a steal and definitely a staple item that basically goes with almost anything.
Throw some tights on under it and a collared shirt for a work look or go bare-legged hussy at da club and look damn fine.
This final piece is for lamos who lack the cojones to wear more leather. A billowy top in emerald green (another big thing this season) silk and chiffon, this Elizabeth And James piece is detailed with a soft leather collar for just a touch of badassness.
Here’s a little video and song to get you into the mood for wearing you’re newly purchased animal hide. Also, maybe avoid vegans, just in case.
UPDATE: Here’s another awesome video to tell you how great you look in leather! Thanks, Matias!
