TIPS : HOW TO WEAR IT
My tips are simple with leather - just don't over-do it.  Listen, when it gets cold outside I love pulling out my leather jacket and leather boots but what's up with the leather trend this season are the details, the sexy leggings and the colours.  Let's start with leggings (and like mine yours may be faux - but we will pretend those count), I'm totally drooling over the new on-trend colours hitting stores like the fabulous oxblood and forest green.  I love my full on leather leggings but you don't have to feel dressed up in them.  Throw on an oversized knit sweater and you will find a comfortable balance.  Aside from the new colours that are hot, you can also find leggings with leather just on the front half or even just slashes and patches.  If the whole legging aspect of the trend freaks you out there are some amazing options for up top.  I'm obsessed with blazers to begin with and now seeing blazers with leather details such as the collar I'm finding it hard to pull myself away from them!!  Wear a lot of blouses? They have detailing now too!  Even more casual tops and sweaters are partially leather most popular being the sleeves creating nice texture.  
So like most of my posts, you know your style best and with trends there are a lot of different options on how to wear it so just be sure to be true to you and be comfortable with how you rock it!
