A little goes a long way with leather
There’s no doubt that leather is on-trend for this fall, but what’s impressive is the subtle yet sublime way the male style set is working it into their wardrobes. In terms of accessories, the watch has been replaced (at least temporarily) with masculine braided bracelets. And when it comes to this season’s must-have man bag, the backpack, you can be certain designers will follow suit and lean toward leather. Speaking of suits, look for leather piping, leather-covered buttons and other understated elements that add just the right amount of rebellion to more formal attire. Because when it comes to leather this season, the head-to-toe look is a no-go.
