Denim and leather are two separate trends that have been staple fabrics for various types of apparel throughout the decades. These two trends are currently more in than ever. They are the perfect edgy and sweet combination for all of the #FashionistaMamas out there!
These two can be worn in an endless mixture of silhouettes, outfits and styles. For the Fall months.
We adore this combination in classic ensembles like denim dresses with leather jackets, or a leather shirt with denim jeans.
Denim and leather are trickling down from the runways to the streets in fresh, unique ways. Items like denim jeans or leather jackets are timelessly fashionable, but we are seeing these trends pop up in bolder ways through more traditionally unconventional pieces like leather shoes or a denim shirt.
The fashionable pairing of fabrics can easily be found in high-end stores for higher prices, especially when the leather is authentic. Thankfully, since these trends are so stylish they are popping up in fast-fashion retail stores for extremely reasonable prices. Now of course, you will not score a genuine leather jacket at Forever 21, but you can still find the perfect faux leather jacket for about $25 – $45 bucks. It is also not a bad idea to invest in a genuine leather jacket or a designer pair of denim jeans because in the long run, quality dominates quantity.
Another great idea with these classic trends is to check thrift or vintage stores where you may be able to find high end brands being resold for cheaper prices.
If you are looking for an outfit to wear for a more casual occasion like your kids birthday party, you can combine these trends in a more relaxed way by throwing on a studded leather shirt with lightly ripped denim jeans and leather flats. If you have a daughter and want to match with her, you can style her in a denim jacket, jeans and a graphic t-shirt. Or if you have a son, he can throw on a casually cool leather jacket with distressed jeans and sneakers. This just proves how versatile leather+denim is. Follow these basic pieces of advice and you will be the hottest Mommy/Kid duo in town!
