Hi Guys, I have another summer outfit idea for you. As you know I love denim and leather. But these materials often get associated with dark and heavy outfits. In this post I want to show you a way to change up that game and wear those materials in a much lighter and fresher version.
The dress I’m wearing here is a pretty old one from Zara. But I love the color and the leather valances give it a more interesting texture. And it’s one of the few leather pieces in my closet that are actually not black, so that’s a big plus. As said there are ways to make leather looks appear fresher and lighter. Most important to achieve such a look is playing with soft colors like pastel tones or white. What also favors such a look is to make sure the material on your leather piece isn’t too thick. I have leather jackets that are very heavy and weight a lot. That’s not something you necessarily want to wear on a 30 degree summer day. But this dress is made out of very thin leather layers which is perfect for this look and the warmer weather. So try to find a piece that is less bulky and combine it with soft colors is my tip here. It gives your leather piece a whole new appearance.
Generally I’ve been totally into wearing dresses with sneakers this season. I think it’s a cool and stylish way to dress your outfit down for the day. Then at night you can just switch your shoes to high heels and you’re all set for a night out. So for this outfit I just combined the leather dress with my all time favorite white Converse sneakers. Then I threw on a lightweight cream jeans jacket I actually stole from my sisters closet a while ago (hihi). Adding my white shoulder bag from Forever 21, some big sunglasses and jewelry completes the look. Do you like it?
