Leather has always been one of the after-sought staples for a stylish and edgy street style as its sleek and sexy feel to revamp your outfit especially on the cold weather. However, it’s more daring version, a patent leather is a little daunting and tricky to pull as its glossy finish can make you look like wearing a waterproof ensemble on the streets. If you wish to sport these statement-making pieces, keep on scrolling for stylish tips to pull off the look.
1. Patent Leather Footwear
Commonly mistaken for a rain boots, patent leather knee-high boots can still look chic when styled properly. If you’re trying to make an outfit look sexier, like a combination of a tank top and denim shorts, a pair of leather knee-high boots in a bold color is a sure accessory to get the job done for you. Give your outfit more appeal by opting for a structured and high-heeled pair or dress it down by opting for utilitarian knee-high boots for a rougher look. If you’re still on doubt wearing knee-high boots, then go for a pair of patent leather pumps in feminine colors.
2. Patent Leather Tops
Vest, jackets, tanks, and even tube tops are statement-making pieces you may go for, especially when you’re wearing a monochrome outfit or a simple dress in a muted shade. Just keep in mind that patent leather is stiffer and warmer compared to genuine or faux versions so you may end up sweating in a summer season. This means that winter or cold season of fall is perfect to show off your patent leather tops that provide you warmth and style.
3. Patent Leather Trousers
Leather trousers are always great for showing off those beautifully toned legs without showing some skin. Since they’re usually form-hugging, those women with slim and toned legs are the best ones to pull off this ensemble as it may end up showing all your bulges and flaws if you’re bottom-heavy. To avoid looking like all-geared up to take a dive in the waters, pair your patent leather trousers with cotton and soft fabrics on your top to keep it balanced and stylish. Add a pair of edgy boots to have that “drop dead gorgeous” outfit that’s sure to make everyone stop and stare.
4. Patent Leather Skirts
Surprise everyone on the streets by sporting a leather pencil skirt with a simple tee that will make any casual outfit look fabulous and runway ready. Leather pencil skirts are form-hugging, so if you don’t want a tight fit that hugs your back, select a patent leather skirt in a pleated style, accordion style, and even circle skirts that float away from your hips. Since patent leather skirts are stiff and glossy, pair them with a soft and cottony sweater, coat, feminine blouses, and even graphic tees.
5. Patent Leather Dresses
Any woman who can pull off a leather dress is always considered street style snap-worthy. So they’re perfect for fashion weeks and other fancy events that call for statement-making outfits. So, be brave showcasing your bold fashion style on the streets and make a statement that turns heads.
