Do Not Pack Up Your Leather for the Season Just Yet!

As the spring months lead into the summer months, the last thing most of us want to think about is bundling up. We want to wear as little as possible and we do not want anything to cling to us. Most of us are all too happy to pack up the winter wardrobe and store our furs at our local storage facility until the last possible moment right before the snow actually hits the ground. And while that is all well and good, do not put that leather away just yet. Warm months does not mean the end to leather, especially this year.


Leather is extremely durable and aids in creating extremely long lasting accessories. Whether it be used for shoes, handbags, or even belts and wallets, leather is a go-to material for many designers due to its durability and beauty. As a matter of fact, some of the biggest trends this year that are perfect for Father’s Day include the leather wallet that is perfect for any man. Another trend for the past few years has been boat shoes, most of which are made out of soft leather. Of course, leather handbags are still popular throughout the entire year, whether it is the dead of winter or the warmest day of summer. Once again, the key is durability, especially when creating accessories that you want to last a lifetime.

Fashion Trends

This year, the Paris runway saw a new spring and summer fashion trend that defied the norm. While leather has always been considered a yearlong accessory material, it is often overlooked for summer and spring clothing fashion, mostly due to its restrictive nature. This year, many designers found a way to have their proverbial cake and eat it too. We like leather. It makes a statement we want to share with the world. However, that statement is hard to share when you are sweating beneath your leather pants or shorts. To buck the odds, this year, designers have incorporated leather fringe into numerous pieces from their spring collections. Leather fringe gives the clothing a unique look while allowing leather to breathe. Whether the leather fringe is a border on a jacket or makes us an entire dress, it can be a wonderful technique to incorporate our love of all things leather with the love of being comfortable in warmer weather.
