Summer Leathers: How to Make the Best of Summers (Sometimes) Shitty Weather

Karen Weaver Ginger Snaps Black Leather

They always say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Yes, it’s true, we New Yorkers have been given the very short end of the weather stick in 2014.  Between the copious amounts of rain and the June days in the 50’s (!!), it doesn’t really feel like summer yet.  But there is a fashion silver-lining, folks.  Remember that trend of Summer Leathers that came around last year? (You can check out my initial coverage on wearing Brightly Colored Leather for Summer HERE).  Take advantage of this unseasonable weather by breaking out your favorite leather tops and dresses, especially those that are sleeveless.  Here to help me show you how I style the trend, check out Miss Maria King and myself in Black Summer Leather Dresses.

Before we get to the details of todays OOTD, please take a moment to go vote for me for the Vanity Fair Best Dressed List by “liking” all of photos (including this look below!) at the link below!  Thanks everyone who has helped with this endeavor!  30,000 Votes and counting!
