The invention of patent leather stirred up much excitement back in the 1800’s and still remains a very powerful and timeless fabric today. Personally, leather has and will always be my number one choice. From leggings to jackets, handbags to dresses, I love adding at least one element of leather to my outfit! The timeless elegance of leather can be blamed on Chanel and their black patent leather Classic Flap Bag. Leather adds the perfect amount of edge to any look and many designers love to incorporate leather into their designs. If you want to go bold, rock a black leather dress with some stud details for a killer going out look. I’m obsessed with leather bags and I truly love the look of leather when it is a bit distressed.
