HOW TO WEAR LEATHER IN THE HOT WEATHER
“Leather in this weather?”
With all the parties to attend this festive season, I’ve definitely been putting this pair of leather shorts to good use lately.
Attended a social event some days ago and amidst the “I love your shorts” compliments were a lot of side snarky “leather in this weather?” comments.
While the idea of wearing leather may seem ridiculous in the sweltering and humid Lagos weather (yes, I’m back home for the holidays), there are quite a few ways to pull this piece off without sweating your derriere off
- Faux Leather: So many times I was tempted to shout “it’s faux leather guys, take a lot of chill pills!” Faux leather is a lighter and cheaper alternative to real leather. It’s light weight nature makes it more bearable in hotter climates.
- Wear it minimally: Incorporate it in little doses. Opt for a single leather short or skirt because that way, it’s more versatile and can be paired with just about anything while avoiding a heat stroke.
- Loose & Comfortable is better: When wearing leather in warm climates, it is better to opt for a loose and comfortable fit. A clingy piece will feel uncomfortable and justify the “leather in this weather?” comments. Pair it with a loose shirt and sneakers for a really laid back look.
Will you rock faux leather in the hot weather? I’d like to know your thoughts!
Compliments of the season!
