Leather in summer - You are probably thinking: NO!! But if you are anything like me and love jackets then leather is a wardrobe staple. You don't necessarily need to be riding a Harley to sport one, neither do you have to be living in the temperate zones. There are several ways to carry off a leather jacket in summer, and for this blogpost I have decided to pair it with a SKORT.
What is a Skort?
In the pics below I am wearing a 'SKORT'. This term was invented by my good friend Dee when I mentioned on my snapchat: thestyletherapy, that I was wearing a pair of shorts which in fact looked like a skirt. Skirt/Short = Skort.
When the temperatures are soaring and you tend to wear a lot of smaller length skirts, shorts or SKORT's, then an instant way to boost the look is by pairing it with a jacket. In this case I'm wearing a light weight leather jacket which is perfect for the air conditioned indoors. It is not too bulky to lug around and neither does it make me sweat.
Growing up, I for one was never a fan of Skorts... but I am in love with them now. Wear it with a good pair of stilettos or wedges and you are good to go. Not only is this look edgy, its on trend and looks great. N oh I have to mention the color - Mustard yellow. It is one of my favorite for summer. It is the right amount of pop and suits my tan skin perfectly.
The only two accessories I'm wearing are my Bomberg watch and a 3 layered single chain.
