The best leather pieces for your summer wardrobe from your Denver leather store


December 9, 2021

With summer in full swing, you may be unsure of what leather pieces you should sport this season. While it may be intimidating to add quality Denver leather pieces to your summer wardrobe, it is easier than you think! If you are ready to find out what the best leather pieces are and how to incorporate them into your summer styling, check out our tips below.

Leather skirts and dresses

For an on-trend look that screams summer, opt for a leather skirt or dress. These leather wardrobe staples are a great way to add sophistication and edge to any summer outfit. While black leather skirts and dresses are perfect any time of year, they can get a bit warm during the summer months. Because black tends to soak up the sun’s rays and keep in heat, we suggest opting for leather skirts and dresses in neutral shades. Investing in shades of tan, beige, dusty rose, and light blue are a great way to look fabulous and not overheat in your leather pieces. For a summer afternoons spent out and about, we suggest pairing a neutral-colored knee or thigh-length leather skirt with your favorite oversized plain white-tee.

Leather shorts and pants

While some may be intimidated at the thought of wearing a leather short or pant, these can be fantastic additions to any fashion-forward summer wardrobe. For those who like to show a little leg when temperatures rise, a pair of leather short shorts is perfect for summer styling. Consider pairing with a bold animal print top or crisp white button down for a warm weather look that will not disappoint. Leather pants can also be a great summer option, although it is best to keep the rest of your outfit simple and light. We suggest pairing your favorite fitted leather trousers with a crop top or t-shirt in a light-weight material and neutral shade. This will allow you to stay cool, while looking fierce.

Leather jackets and vests

Level-up your summer wardrobe with a cropped leather jacket style. This on-trend accessory is perfect for an outfit that will keep you looking and feeling cool, even on steamy summer nights. Pair with a high-waisted trouser or skirt and breezy top for an elegant ensemble with edge. For those who prefer a longer-length leather jacket, consider a less is more approach. Pair with bike shorts, crop tops, and other summer wardrobe staples for a trendy grunge inspired look. For those in extra-warm climates, a sleeveless leather vest is also a great option to beat the summer heat while appearing effortlessly cool.
