Summer is coming to a close. It’s time to pack up the flip-flops and the tank tops, and whip out the leather
and the handcuffs. No, don’t fret, no need to buy a literal whip.
Slick leather separates are a must for fall. This time we’re not just sticking to leather pants, but also leather
tops and skirts. You’re probably thinking dominatrix, but no one’s asking you to wear head to toe leather. I say
let the leather be your main piece and assemble the rest of your outfit around it.
For the office, wear a leather top with a bright pencil skirt or dark jeans. For going out, be bold and wear that
leather dress, as long as it is not more than 3 inches above your knees (please, no one wants to see your underwear).
In addition to leather, handcuffs have become a trend – bracelet handcuffs that is. Two things come to mind when I see handcuffs and they are jail and eroticism, but Louis Vuitton, for example, made them classy and elegant.
