For many people, wearing leather in a place other than your belt loops, around your wrist or on your feet is a strange concept. For fashionistas, however, it’s a completely different story. The Fall ready-to-wear 2011 collections offered up the best in all-over leather: skirts, leggings, jackets, vests and even dresses! The effect: Amelia Earhart meets fashion editor. Mixing a leather skirt with a casual sweater screams effortless chic, while a loose vest is the perfect extra layer as the weather starts to cool down into fall. And, for those of you less inclined to wear the real thing, never fear! There are plenty of faux options available from some of your favorite designers including Stella McCartney.
