Leather is big news for Winter. Have you invested in a piece yet? We'd usually suggest teaming your luxe leather separates with a cosy textured knit for contrast, but Nicole Richie has made us re-think. The Fashion Star mentor, and designer, stepped out at NBC's Summer press event in leather-on-leather get up, which somehow works. She pulls it off thanks to her perforated shell top, which adds textural interest and lessons the Catwoman effect. Laser cut techniques give a femme, lace-like allure to this weather-proof fabrication, making her double-up ensemble tough and girly at the same time. Clever! We hit the online shops to find similarly laser cut leather pieces, so you can walk the same gritty/pretty line.
