Michael Kors Fall 2012 Runway
Ok, so I may have found the one new trend that just may succeed in getting me excited for fall. Right now, I am fighting the arrival of fall as hard as I can, because I don’t feel like I’ve gotten my share of summer quite yet. After all, I live in Seattle—I just need a little more sun and warmth for just a little longer. But when the sun and warmth finally do go away, I am more than ready to embrace the fall trend of leather tops.
Leather tops are definitely my top pick of the new fall season’s trends and styles. They are so sexy and edgy. We’ve seen the leather jackets and pants, the leather leggings, but leather tops are a relatively unique and new addition to the racks and runways.

I love the look of a black leather shell, but the leather peplum tops that have been popping up everywhere are pretty amazing too. They would add such a fun edge to a work look with a pencil skirt or skinny trousers. Here are some of the ways I’ve seen it styled recently that look great—I especially like Emma Stone’s look with white jeans, and of course, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere always gets it right. Paired with a floral skirt, it can be work appropriate, and as a camisole with jeans, its just downright sexy for a night out.
H&M actually has a really great affordable version of the leather peplum top and TopShop does an awesome version of a leather t-shirt with a leather front and racy chiffon back that is a pretty good price as well, but I am totally digging the gold leather t-shirt from Maje—I am already picturing holiday outfits with it. Is that weird? I like to be prepared. The long-sleeved Reed Krakoff version ain’t too shabby either.
How are you going to rock the leather trend this fall?
