How to Wear Leather for Fall'12 in Asia?
What comes to mind when you think of Leather outfits?
Probably a cool climate ( hence a need for a leather jacket),
rock chick( sniggering....) or perhaps something kinky to use
in the bedroom? ( more sniggering...)
Well, here in Singapore, we certainly DO NOT wear leather to keep ourselves warm, nor
for most of us perhaps using leather in the bedroom may be a tad too funky ( the Asian
speaking in me!). However Leather as you know is a key Fall trend for 2012, so how can we
style it to be chic yet not biker chick if you know what I mean, unless you are truly getting on
a Harley Davidson and riding off to the sunset!
LOOK NO. 1 - Pairing it with Heels, Statement Necklace and Bag
I wanted to explore playing with textures and prints in my Look No. 1. Piling on 2 funky necklaces, a printed sleeveless top with a checkered plaid corset, a simple leather skirt could easily be worn to the office or out about town with this getup.
LOOK NO. 2 - Wedges & Belt

Leather Skirt : eBay UK ( similar here)
Heels with Gold Studs : River Island
Bag : Chanel Jumbo XL ( Vintage)
Ring : Forever 21
Gold Choker Necklace : Cotton On ( similar here)
Spike Necklace : Foster Bay
In this second styling, I had toned down the feel of the same outfit just by removing the statement necklaces as well as cinching in the waist with a skinny belt which is probably a cuter way to wear this outfit especially if you are younger.
I had also replace the heels with a pair of black suede wedges.
Here's how Hollywood Celebrities are wearing this trend.
So you can see how easy it is to play around with prints, textures to trend
