Falling for Luxe Leather and Bold Bordeaux

By  October 04, 2013

André 3000 said it best when he announced his affinity for “leather in the summer,” in 2004’s “I Can’t Wait”. My love for the fine hide runs year-round. The right leather jacket or unexpected leather trim can run the gamut from rugged to refined, adding a cool factor to any look. Whether you choose real or faux, pair a leather piece with a rich hue, like on-trend bordeaux, and I’m sold.
