For Resort 2013, fashion trends are going against the norm by using leather as the go-to, versatile fabric. Leather has worked its way into apparel for all types of weather. Expect the supple and rich fabric to take over vests, jackets, dresses, shorts and skirts and to be displayed on shelves everywhere throughout the season. This buttery textile will add a dose of chic style to any look.
Resort vests have stepped up their game from plain denim and lace to the alternative trend of leather. Layering a tee or tank with a leather vest is the simplest way to transform an entire ensemble. Resort vests incorporate quilted leather and smooth lines with structured and sleek silhouettes to create this easily wearable piece of clothing.
The typical black leather biker jacket has been revamped with new leather looks for lighter weather. Toss on a leather jacket featuring cut-outs, pastels, neon shades and structured shoulders for an updated spin on the harsh and signature silhouette.
Resort dresses are always fresh, fun and flirty. Incorporate the new Spring leather trend into your dresses to replace the feminine, full-skirted must-have item with an edgy and sexy option. Whether a shirtdress, curve-conforming or a fit and flare option, any dress still looks stylish in leather.
Switch out your old cuffed denim shorts for a pair of lush leather shorts in dark or popping shades of favorite Spring colors. Cuffed or clean-lined, and featuring drawstrings, an elastic waistband or oversized pockets, leather shorts are the new essential bottoms for the season.
Transform easy-breezy skirts into more structured items this season by flaunting a leather textile. Opting for a mod miniskirt or a clean-lined bottom with intricate detailing like laser-cuts, girly pleats or funky zippers will create an everyday fashionable and fun look to wear throughout the season with flair.
