How Do You Wear It? Fall 2012’s Leather Trend

Today we have even more reader submissions, showcasing how Bombshells from across the globe wear Fall 2012 trends! This week’s HDYWI focus is leather. Though Fall 2012 runways showcased more head-to-toe leather looks, you can incorporate the slick skin on sleeves, skirts, or autumn ready jackets.
Take a look on how these ladies rocked it:

Ava from says, “For this look, I wore a leather jacket under a sleeveless dress–both of which I already had in my closet. Saved myself the money and hassle of going out to buy new items.”

Ellie from says, “I decided to go with the Leather trend for Fall. Not only is Kimye all over it, but it’s super chic! Fall is my favorite time of the year for Fashion. I’m really enjoying the leather trend at the moment. I have been spicing up my work wardrobe with leather, like in this outfit. I switched my basic black pencil skirt with my leather pencil skirt for work, that way I can enjoy the leather trend no matter where I am!”

Jenni did a bit of DIY, affixing leather sleeves to one of her canvas jackets.

Naisy Tiny from Afro Vaidosas also got it popping with a leather skirt and heelless wedges.

South Korea resident and Houston native Arnecia wrote, ” I recently went shopping at an outdoor Japanese Vintage Market and found a vintage red peplum top with shoulder pads and a wool khaki coat and paired it with faux leather pants from H&M Korea. In the pictures I show the contrast of a day look to night look, along with the mixing of different textures. The black leather buckle riding Aldo boots are great for daytime play and the Dolce Vita booties are best for a night out on the town. I also added a thin gold chain belt to define my waistline more. Also, I folded the pants and did some scrunching to add flair to the night time look.”

Dionne went a more traditional route, simply slipping on a leather jacket.

Leota made the look her own with a pleated faux leather mini from Forever 21.

And lastly Alnesa from New Jersey also went the faux leather route with H&M pants and Forever 21 separates.
