Leather clothing, accessories and jewelry have intrigued both women and men for many years. Leather jewelry trends started during the hippie culture, where leather jewelry was first worn embellished with lucky charms. Celebrities and rock stars took it further making leather an integral part of their jewelry and accessories.
Wearing leather adds a cool or alternative look to any outfit for women and men. While historically, leather was worn by people in high society, leather jewelry is worn today to make a fashion statement. And this season leather is trending for everyone!
For many men, a leather bracelet is a fashionable addition to any outfit, from t-shirt and jeans to suits. Men look very attractive in leather accessories.
For women, on the other hand, leather adds a distinctive look with many styles to choose including an array of material combinations or embellishments such as crystals, metals, beads, and stones.
Leather jewelry is popular for stacking & layering too. Our customers have asked us what the best ways are to stack and layer our pieces. There are NO RULES on how to stack them, but here are some ideas that we hope are helpful for wearing and styling leather jewelry.
Tips for adding Leather jewelry to your style:
- First, determine the look you are trying to achieve and the occasion. Are you stacking bracelets or layering necklaces for an everyday look or for a night out? Then, based on the colors of your outfit, identify which leather bracelet color(s) and embellishments you want to stack together. For example, if you’re wearing black you may want to complement your outfit with gold or silver or with an accent gemstone color. Our black leather and sterling silver bracelets are versatile, neutral, and add style to any outfit.
2. Combining a watch and leather bracelet is another way to stack jewelry. A customer we know loves to pair her watch with our handcrafted leather bracelets. It’s both fashionable and classy. Your inner artist can help discover the watch/bracelet combination that works best for you.
3. Or perhaps accent your look with a pearl and leather necklace from our Antika collection, think bringing more wisdom into your life? This necklace will enhance any outfit and give you confidence when out with friends, family, or colleagues.
4. The latest leather necklace trend is “Festival Fashion” where dressing becomes a cultural movement, like Coachella, using a bohemian sensibility with multilayering, fringe and tassels. Our sustainable zinc dipped in sterling silver leather necklaces have been a big boho chic fan favorite for layering. They look great with a t-shirt, blouse, or dress.
