Leather, Leather, Leather!

What do you think of woman who wears the same leather jacket to the office, the PTA meeting and the theater?

I believe women entrepreneurs can combine conservative clothes with leather apparel to make a bold statement. She is a woman who makes calculated risks. She embraces her both masculine and feminine sides.

I love leather.

As a teenager in Russia, I wore it as a rebellious statement. A few years later, I moved to the United States to earn my bachelor’s degree. During this time, I was coordinating leather apparel for a large company. I developed a lot of product knowledge and networked with a number of interesting, successful people. The years passed and I moved on to earn my master of business administration degree. I still had a keen interest in this clothing niche.

Just recently, I attended a Milwaukee gala with people of different age and professional demographics. The women wore leather jackets and blazers. I even spotted formal leather dresses. Imagine. They were not rebellious teenagers, bikers or rock stars. These women  were conservative professionals.

Many people perceive leather as the epitome of sexiness or rebellion. The fact is that it is the current fashion trend. It’s seen on catwalks of New York, Milan, Paris and London. In fact, every top designer has a leather outfit in his or her 2012-2013 collections.

What started as a trend by punks with limited cash in the 1970s has emerged into a present-day lady-like trend for professional, feminine women.

I am not a teenager any longer. Yet, my closet still has plenty of leather – from gloves to jackets. I like to mix it with conservative clothes, such as white shirts, closed toe shoes and pencil skirts.

It’s like having the de rigueur little black dress in your wardrobe. Leather outerwear is a “must-have” classic that will never go out of style.

Do you have a leather jacket? How do you like to wear it?

  2. I have a black high-waisted leather pencil skirt that I am obsessed with right now. I wear it to the office with just a simple silk top, and always get compliments. It feels a little “edgy” but still work-appropriate :)

  6. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months
    of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to
    prevent hackers?
