Have you seen Miley C on the previous cover of Elle? And that fab pictorial inside? How about Jen Aniston’s upcoming September cover in leather? I mean really who can’t resist a good biker chic moment in fashion even if it is on a teen queen? This trend is perched firmly at the top of my wish list… really love – no sarcasm here! It’s like a Sandra Dee moment meets Faster, Pussycat! Kill, Kill. (A Russ Meyer’s classic) Ever since Brando stepped into that little town caught between two biker gangs in The Wild One’s our leather dreams have never been the same.
This season it’s a perfect blend of grown up day dresses, handbags and designer pumps all done in buttery rich leathers, then topped off with naughty meets nice grommets, studs and zippers. Yves Saint Laurent deliciously swathed their models in the most sexy secretary frocks imaginable and the criss- cross pumps to die for…. Hello kitty!!!!
If there’s more secretary than Biker babe in your persona here are a few investment items to spice up your journey without draining your wallett.
But don’t forget – never work a trend from head to toe, that simply begs for a fashion faux paux moment that you will never live down in the age of social networking. Must I repeat we live in a digital age… big brother is always watching!
Be on the lookout for this Emporio Armani fitted leather jacket, it works with everything from jeans to snug dresses and it won’t break the bank the way most leather’s can.
