Leather Tees for Fall

Black: Pied-a-Terre Leather Tee ($190) Navy: Raoul Graphic Leather Tee ($335) Green: J.Crew Leather and Merino top ($495)  Tan: TopShop Patched Panel Sweatshirt ($56)

Last week, I had lunch with a friend on the Senate side.  She was wearing the coolest outfit: wide leg black trousers, black heels, a snow leopard print, silk button up and a black leather tee over the top.  All of this was accessorized with some long gold chains and two big, cocktail rings.  Paired with a french twist, it was the perfect pairing of rocker chic and professional attire.

Her outfit got me thinking: Could I pull off a leather tee? 

Honestly, I’m not sure that I could, and at these prices, I’m not sure I would even try.  After all, spending four bones on a single shirt is a bit steep for me.  But on the other hand, I’d love to try a leather tee with a long chiffon skirt or a colored, ankle trouser. 

Perhaps, I’ll bookmark a few leather tees in case they go on sale.  This long sleeved one in particular.

    I'm digging the Raoul and J Crew shirts, but do not have $300+. Your friends outfit sounds great!

    The long sleeved one blows the other ones you posted out of the water!

    What about a pleather option, Belle? There are some decent looking fauxs for the vegans and budget-conscious.
