Regardless of season, temperature or event, leather works. From bags, jackets and shoes to skirts, shorts and leggings, leather comes in all different forms and colors. Leather has always been a hot accessory and outfit setter, giving an outfit a vintage, trendy, chic and fashion-forward look. You should never be afraid to take a risk with leather. But for those who are unsure on how to wear leather, we are here to show you. Leather can be your outfits best friend this summer. The Backroom, being an urban-street vintage boutique, understands how leathers can work for any season, temperature and event, and promote and sell leathers with the hope that people will love them, as much as we do.
So, it’s (supposed) to be summer in Montreal, what leather pieces would work best? Anything and everything! Whether having the perfect leather bag, shoes or belt, to finding the perfect leather skirt, pair of shorts or tights, they all work. The real problem is matching them and creating the perfect outfit. For women, leather can match with a nice denim shirt, a stylish crop-top, a solid colored tank or t-shirt. For men, although not as common, leather should be something in your wardrobe. Matched with an oversized t and tank-top, the right pair of leather shorts, shoes or belt can make your outfit work. Also, summer allows for a varied color of leathers; from beige and green, to pink and yellow, to the forever common black. Leather allows you to give your outfit some character, with a hint on vintage and urban-street feel. What more can you ask for?
