How to wear white leather


Sources: One, two, three


There is a lot of inspirational outfits out there when it comes to all out white, but getting the mix right with white leather adds a whole other level of skill.  These three looks really drew my eye for the simplicity of the approach. These ladies make wearing white leather look practical (which I didn't realise was even possible) and sophisticated.  Up until recently all I could envision with white leather was those naff looks form the 1980's/90's.  Some how white really accentuates cheap and flimsy, so when attempting white leather, think quality and classic cuts.

  3. Those looks are so lovely! They will stick solely to "pretty to look at" for me though, I can't imagine my clumsy self in any all white outfit, especially leather, haha!

    1. My pleasure Carole. I haven't forgotten about the white shirts too :) Currently down the Great Ocean Road and internet access is a nightmare! I'll get on the case shortly. I'm loving the quilted (Balenciaga) too. It's still on my wish list. I wish we had better access to Balenciaga in a store in Melbourne.

  6. I think leather in general has to be quality - you can spot cheap leather from a mile away! But leather clothing is too expensive for me anyways :/

    1. You make a really good point about being able to spot cheap leather. A heads up, I normally try to get leather jackets (or expensive items) in the sales. These days there seems to be a lot left so often there are some gems come sale time. Some boutiques take their high end sale item off online so it takes going into the boutiques. Well worth the trip though :)

  8. White is my black... it's bold, it's crisp, and elegant. I would love to wear white leather, but it definitely takes skill and caution. I took out my white bag once for lunch and got a curry stain that took all day to take out. Not the easiest to clean!

    Cheers!
