key piece for fall. Designers got real crazy this year featuring leather with everything from evening gowns to leggings. Most will continue to put it over a tank top or t-shirt, and pair it with jeans or a mini skirt for the ideal outfit.
These top two looks on the right are both "splurges" and the price will be the clear reason why, and both are available at Bloomingdale's. First is the washed leather double breasted jacket by Joie. The jacket features bronze buttons with dramatic seven button cuffs; the style ties back to the "military look". Dry clean only, $638, www.bloomingdales.com keyword leather jacket.
The next "splurge" is "Desiree", the strapless leather panel dress by Theory. Elastic band in bust and side zipper, dry clean only, $395. www.bloomingdales.com keyword leather clothing.
These next two looks are faux leather looks by Express, both are very tailored and very affordable. On the right is the faux leather blazer, it's the animal friendly alternative to real leather, and has the same look and feel, $98
The faux leather pencil skirt is lined, side zip, and is spot clean, and for only $69.50 it's perfect for just about any social gathering.
