Celebrities Love…Leather Sleeves

With the holidays right around the corner, here’s a trend to put at the top of your wish list: the leather-sleeved coat/jacket.

Leather is a chic yet rough fabric that adds edge to even the most feminine pieces.

Both on and off the red carpet, celebrities like Zoe Saldana, Ciara, Elizabeth Olsen and Rihanna have been spotted wearing this sleek and sophisticated look.

The trend was big on the Fall 2011 runway at The Row, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Zero + Maria Cornejo.

Pair your leather sleeves with simple jeans like Zoe did in her Roland Mouret jacket or toughen the look up in head-to-toe black like Rihanna in Givenchy.

Elizabeth Olsen dressed up her Helmut Lang number with a Preen skirt and heels.

The fur accents on Ciara’s Helmut Lang jacket add a chic winter vibe to the trend.

    I think the leather sleeve is definitely unique, but only a handful of individuals would be able to pull that off. Plus, I don’t think it’s the most practical coat in the closet!
