When August rolls around, many of us start longing for boots, sweaters, scarves, and everything else that comes with fall (pumpkin lattes, anyone?). Even though we have a month or more of hot weather left, it’s not too early to start picking up the next season’s trends. For fall, we’re looking at two things: leather and lace. Check out some examples of how to wear them - we have ideas whether you want a bold look or a subtle hint of each.
Leather jackets are nothing new, but for this season we expect to see them paired with extra-feminine materials (think floaty neutrals or lace).
Like a little less leather? Go for a piece with leather paneling or trim, like this jacket. It keeps you trendy without overwhelming the rest of your look.
Neutrals and lace are both in for fall, and this dress combines the two. We love the flower pattern of the lace.
Not ready to go full-on lace? Not to worry, because lace paneling (like leather paneling) will be big this season too. We love the femininity the lace adds to this gorgeous dress.
