HOW TO WEAR PATENT LEATHER
One of the hottest trends right now aside of everything velvet is everything vinyl, or in other words patent leather (usually vegan).
I wanted to add a couple of lines to this outfit post on how to wear patent leather this season, because trust me it is not that obvious:)
Here I went all in with this red hot patent mini AND a matching raincoat.
There are a couple of rules when wearing provocative patent leather pieces. Rule number one : juxtaposition is necessary. I would recommend wearing this ‘sexy’ material with something totally opposite like a sweatshirt or a thick knit sweater to balance the effect. Rule number two: forget stilettos- shoes should be either casual or slightly masculine for the right end result.
I have worn my patent duo with a very simple and casual white wool top, black tights and black and white chunky brogues.
I am realistic so I doubt any of you will run to the store to acquire this killer outfit that is close to unwearable outside of the shoot, this is why I am sharing a couple of links to a more tuned down version of this outfit.
