So many requests on Twitter lately for affordable leather pieces! Of course, I’m happy to oblige From bags to boots, leggings to leather jackets, I’ve found fall’s hottest trend for $100 and under. Super sexy, leather adds a tough touch to your look. I especially love leather paired with an uber-feminine blouse or stiletto – the contrast is gorgeous! Below, my leather picks for less:
1. Topshop leather front tee $100 2. DSW leather riding boot $100 3. Buckle cropped jacket $60 4. H&M leggings 5. Tilly’s faux fur lined jacket $40 6. Mango leather panel dress $80 7. Zara patent leather shopper $50 8. Juicy Couture leather gloves $98

Following London Fashion Week Part I, here’s my second recap including the much-anticipated Burberry Prorsum show and Sienna and Savannah Miller’s collection for Twenty8Twelve. Both lines feature wearable pieces that will slip seamlessly into your current wardrobe! I love the neutral/neon and animal print/leather combos on the Burberry catwalk:
And the flirtatious and effortlessly-cool dresses and rompers I saw on the Twenty8Twelve runway:

Leather is one of spring’s biggest trends, and it is here to stay. Designers like Alexander Wang, Derek Lam and many others showed leather in their recent Fall 09 shows.
Today, I shared with you an edgy way to beautify your eyes. Here’s a way to take that look and make a bold statement by incorporating a leather dress like the one Kate Beckinsale was recently photographed in.
What’s also great about this look is that if you simply add a belt to your leather dress, you can accentuate your waist. If you want a more toned down look, I’d go for leather pants or a leather skirt. Choose soft loose fabrics to help complement your look, like sweaters, t-shirts or jersey tops. So infuse your wardrobe with some new leather pieces but choose styles that flatter your figure and add a bit of edginess to create a look that’s trendy and yet still practical!
