Brightside University: Let's Talk Leather

Brightside University: Let's Talk Leather
The clock is ticking... back to school is just around the corner. Whether you're about to take on your freshman year or are returning to campus as an upperclassman, sit down and get ready to be schooled on which pieces will take your college wardrobe to the next level this fall. For our first lesson, we're talking leather. 

1. Free People Layla Vegan Mini Skirt

Do you remember when the Free People Modern Femme skirt took the world by storm? The Free People Layla Vegan Mini Skirt take an elevated update to the Modern Femme with vegan leather for an edgy touch.
This updated silhouette features a front zipper and curved bottom hem that perfectly adds a little edge to any outfit. We'd recommend styling with a bit of a plainer top, allowing the skirt to really be the statement piece of your outfit. 

2. Bijou Vegan Leather Corset Top

The perfect top doesn't exist- Meet the Bijou Vegan Leather Corset Top. Where our two favorite trends, leather, and corset style tops, come together in well, the perfect top.
Available in bone and chocolate, this top features a flattering bustier style and a subtle floral detail pressed into the vegan leather. Make this look more casual by adding a pair of Levi's or dress it up with a skirt. 

3. At Last Vegan Leather Pants


A good pair of leather pants is an absolute staple that everyone needs in their closet. The At Last Vegan Leather Pants feature a wide leg fit and a thicker waistband making you look oh so snatched.
Available in classic black for those of you looking for a "go with everything" kind of vibe and in rose violet for all my girls who want to make a statement. 

4. Slow Down Strapless Mini Dress

A new take on a Brightside favorite! If you loved the Crystal Strapless Mini Dress you'll love The Slow Down Strapless Mini Dress. Both dresses feature the folded neckline and front mini slit that we all love but the new Slow Down Strapless Mini makes it ✨leather✨.
Whether you're hitting the club with the girls, out for a date night or have a function to head to this dress is a must-add to your college wardrobe. 

5. Blank NYC Good Call Vegan Leather Jacket

Just like everyone needs a good pair of leather pants, everyone needs a good leather jacket. The Blank NYC Good Call Vegan Leather Jacket puts a different twist on a closet staple.
When I think "leather jacket" typically I think of a more asymmetric neckline covered in zippers. This jacket features a more classic and relaxed silhouette that is super easy to style, so it's up to you whether you want the focus to be on your outfit or on the jacket. Options baby!
How do you plan to rock leather this upcoming school year?
