We at SC Headquarters love leather. It's versatile. It's timeless; and it wears well over time. Quality leather pieces are a key investment for any wardrobe; and there are so many pieces to choose.
The Leather Jacket
is the signature piece to the "rough side of town" image. However, with the right additions, it can say so much more. For a sweet, edgy look, wear the jacket over simple sundress. A pair of skinny jeans, a fitted tee, and boots creates the ultimate sexy, cool, on-the-prowl night look. Remember, leather doesn't have to be boring; try pieces with color-blocking, zippers, or other embellishments to add some flair.

Leather Pants and Shorts
You either hate it or love it. Choose fits that flatter your figure. A slim fit looks best on a tall, slender frame and a properly tailored trouser is always a plus. Equally attractive and chic are leather shorts. A tailored fit with a basic button-down breathes new life into a standard ensemble. Keep in mind, softer leathers are sometimes the better option when considering a pant or short.

Leather Dresses and Skirts
are nothing short of daring. Just like other leather pieces, the right additions can set the tone. In this area, experimenting with colors other than black is a must. While we all believe the dress is drool-worthy, it isn't the most complementary to one's budget. Let's face it, you can only wear that dashing red dress so much before you become "the girl with that one dress." In this case, opt for a skirt. Pairing a classic A-line silhouette with a basic tee, and chic flats, takes an easy, carefree look up a notch without looking overdone. A leather pencil skirt with a pussycat bow blouse adds balance and a feminine touch.

Edge up your accessory game with some leather strap bracelets. Wear one or multiple and pair them with smaller, thinner metal bracelets for super trendy and stylish look.
Just like the little black dress, a little bit of leather goes a long way. Classics are the perfect building blocks to expanding a wardrobe. This is true for both clothing as well as fashion jewelry and accessories. Invest in the basics and you can't go wrong.
