How to Wear Leather in the Summer

Wearing leather (faux leather) in the summer seems like the last thing you’d want to wear.  However, there are ways to wear leather in the summer that will keep you cool, look chic and keep your obsession with leather going.  The key is to wear spring and summer appropriate shapes and cuts in light colors like shorts, cropped pants, dresses and skirts.  Keep layering to a minimum to keep your look with your favorite leather piece cool enough to rock all day.

Wear it unapologetically

I picked up this faux leather dress on sale from Zara in the dead of winter this year in January.  This is definitely a winter piece, but because of the color, shape, and being short sleeved, I knew I was going to wear it in the spring and summer as well.  The dress is fairly light, so this made it even more perfect to wear during summer.  I paired the dress with my favorite pair of DIY distressed jeans, block heeled sandals and a neon yellow pouch that I’m wearing as a clutch.

What I wore – Dress: Zara (inspired), Jeans: Express, Shoes: JustFab (similar), Pouch/Clutch: H&M
