What to Wear on NYE: Leather

By Laura Iglehart, Student at Georgetown University

Want to ring in 2013 with a fashion-forward bang? Looking to really stand out at your New Year’s Eve party?

Ditch the sparkles and grab some leather (or "pleather,” if you prefer). Leather dresses, skirts, leggings and tops all provide unique alternatives to the standard, flashy New Year’s attire.

Here are my tips and picks for New Year's Eve!

Leather dresses are versatile and often have mixed textures. Just add a pair of heels and some red lipstick for New Year’s Eve.

Leather skirts offer a fun take on classic black skirts with their array of styles. For a perfect New Year’s Eve look, pair with a printed top and tights.

Leather leggings are just … awesome. Like leather dresses and skirts, they are versatile and can easily substitute a plain black pair of leggings. Layer a silky black tunic over these babies for a super chic, textured New Year’s outfit.

Last but not least, leather tops, like leather dresses, can often be found mixed with cotton or other fabrics. Pair with printed pants or a fun skirt for your New Year’s fete.
