Trend Alert: Summer Leather

You might think that leather in July sounds a bit counterintuitive – we totally agree! But as temperatures rise, this traditionally chilly weather textile won’t be tamed. No longer limited to outerwear, there are countless cool and creative ways to integrate leather into your summer style.

At the Style Architects’ office, we’re particularly enamored with the sharp laser cut patterns popping up on everything from purses to peplums. Such delicate detail creates a lacey and romantic look that breathes, while maintaining the integrity of leather that we love.

Mixing and matching leather pieces with lightweight fabrics is also a great way to summer-ize your style. Try a silk top with a colored leather mini to add a bit of edge, a canvas bag with contrasting leather details blending rugged with refined, and for our men, your premium denim with a cognac motorcycle jacket.

And if you’re still on the fence, dip your toes in the water by wearing fun, colored hardware adorned leather accessories such as bracelets, watches and belts for a more subtle yet definitively stated look.
