From Lusty Photoshoots to Chic Goth Runways

 - Aug 22, 2012
Layering is a must for keeping warm in the chill fall months, and these luxuriant leather looks will add a lustrous sheen to your street-styling ways.

With fashion bible Vogue proclaiming that leather is the "new noir," it’s feasible that the chic material will be a recurring theme in many fashionista’s wardrobes. The decidedly dark palettes seen on the fall runways of prominent houses like Gucci, Viktor & Rolf, Valentino and Lanvin are the perfect canvas to incorporate pieces into the mix.

Endless variations on leather, and its prominence in haute editorials, make it the most versatile statement. These include leather detailing, paneling, texturing and even faux versions for the fashion savvy who are opposed to hide textiles. In addition, the look has been re-imagined to create a spectrum that lets you go from fully domineering to subtle edgy. Whichever way you chose to incorporate the sleek layer into your wardrobe, the fall staple is bound to make a modish statement.
