Quick Shop: Sleek and Buttery Soft Leather Pieces For Spring


Leather — faux or for real — is our Winter wardrobe's slick best friend. Come Spring, it becomes much trickier to wear these tanned pieces for an ultralight feel. Not to worry, just look to the Spring '12 runways for instant gratification. Phillip Lim sent models out in pastel-hued leather moto-inspired vests, while Thakoon opted for bolder solid tones set against structured pleated skirts and cool-girl dresses, and Rag & Bone detailed its sportier pieces with leather trim. For an extra dose of styling motivation, celebs like Nicole Richie, Alexa Chung, and Miranda Kerr have all donned Spring-appropriate leather separates. The key is to juxtapose your edgier staple with lighter fare — a statement dress with an embellished belt, a pair of shorts with a sheer jersey tee, or a biker jacket with a floral pencil skirt. That way, you strike a harmonious balance between the season's softer trends and its more masculine ones. Click the slideshow below to shop your favorite pieces — and let us know how you'll be wearing your Spring leather.
