A/W OBSESSIONS: Leather Essentials

Happy Halloween my sweet, sweet readers! I hope you had a blast this weekend with your fabulous costumes, here at Sweet’n’Raw we had also a great time preparing those holiday theme posts we published before. Now it’s time to get a bit more serious, Fall serious that is. Going around the city today, I noticed the beautiful trees in shades of orange and yellow and as leaves begin to fall and Autumn is calling our name, our wardrobes have to be not only ready but perfect for the current season. Yes, I am a self-proclaimed leather lover, I would wear leather pajamas and knickers but that would be rather prejudicial to my pores. I consider leather to be very resourceful, it also has the power of twisting and pumping up any outfit! There was a time when leather was for jackets and boots, nowadays we can even find it on bikins and in different shades (I’m a sucker for pastel leather garments). So for fall, you have to have at least one of the following inside your closets, trust me, you’ll thank me later.

Pencil, mid-length, skin-tight mini, pleated or a personal favorite, the A-line are some of the styles you’ll be able to find in your favorite shops this season. The color? With black you can never go wrong, Cognac is the color of the season and Navy blue just because it’s lovely! From left to right:

Shorts have become a must in every girl’s wardrobe, floral, lace, denim, you name it, they make them that way. Leather shorts are wearable in both seasons. You can pair them up with a breezy top and sandals for Summer or throw a heavy knit sweater with biker boots for Fall. A pair of highwaisted shorts in your closet? Always! From right:

Now this is one garment that wasn’t that popular in leather until this season and it’s a personal favorite. It all started with the leather bustier and it evolved so much that now you can find it in many styles:  the button-down, the one with panels (this season and the next is all about panels), cropped, sleeveless, long sleeved and more! From left to right:

Fancy pants? Sexy pants? Leather pants! Ask any guy out there what is the sexiest garment a woman can wear (lingerie does not count as streetwear, ok?), he is gonna answer leather pants for sure. Not only do they accentuate every bit of our gorgeous and womanly figures but they are show-stoppers and head-turners. From right to left:

The leather dress can be a big hit when the fit is perfect, the material is flattering and the shape does not make you look like you just cut some holes into a trash bag. It is not harsh, you can pull off a romantic look with a leather dress when you pair it up with the right accessories. From left to right:

A biker jacket is always one of the best investments a girl should make. It doesn’t matter if you pay a bit more, you are not getting just a jacket. You are getting a classic, you are getting the chic factor, you are getting the one item that you can wear over and over and  without wearing out the look. It’s so versatile, it has become a need. From right to left:

There you have it! All the leather you are gonna want and you are gonna need for this fall! Check back this week for the outfits I have put together with each and everyone of this garments!
Hoping you have a great week, sweet kisses…
