Campus Trend Report: Lots of Leather

CollegeFashionista is keeping tabs on the hottest fall trends, snapping street style shots from campuses everywhere. This week, we’re taking a closer look at one of fall’s biggest trends, leather.

When listing closet must-haves, leather comes up a lot—the classic moto jacket, cool leather skinnies, a pair of suede booties—and there’s good reason for it. The luxe material is soft, durable, and versatile. This season, leather is showing up in some not-so-familiar silhouettes. Joie has a sexy black tank, Rag & Bone/JEAN did a slouchy pajama pant, and Friend of Mine designed a pair of leather overalls.

Leather can be expensive, but there are plenty of wallet-friendly alternatives. Coated denim has the same reflective qualities, and faux-leather has come a long way from its plastic-y origins. But once you find the styles and silhouettes that work for you, invest. It’s absolutely worth it.
