Thankfully one of the biggest trends for fall 2014 is leather. We really grew accustomed to the idea of leather, last fall, when we purchased a few key pieces. We love dresses and skirts with laser-cut leather details and intricate leather designs. Now, we must warn you: there is a right and wrong way to do leather. To slowly add leather to your wardrobe, start with the basics. Black leather bags, buttery leather jackets, or cognac leather belts are neutrals. In order to step out of your comfort zone purchase “leather in details.” Banana Republic has all sorts of blouses with shoulder embellishments, which means it’s still appropriate for the office and totally fashion forward!
Long gone are the match-matchy suits of the 90’s. Today women in the work force are given better choices for office wear. Brands at different price points are coming out with statement separates in modern colors and cuts. Brands such as Hugo Boss, Classiques, Robecca Taylor, Vince Camuto and Tory Burch have created one-of-a-kind statement jackets for women to dress up and dress down. Pair your statement jacket with a black, navy or cream sheath dress, pencil skirt or dress pant. The statement jackets have intricate zippers, chic color blocking, tweed patterns and can be multi-dimensional. By purchasing a few statement jackets you can create an endless list of looks that can go from day to night easily.
