Fair Leather Fan
What’s not to like about model Lea T‘s off-duty get-up? Lea’s street-style look serves as a reminder that a basic leather miniskirt can be the perfect transition piece. And with New York fashion week just a little over a month away, you can never have too many of those in your wardrobe. The catwalker paired her easy-to-wear leather skirt with an iconic Givenchy Rottweiler T-shirt from the Fall 2011 menswear collection and knee-high boots from the pre-Fall range (which are almost completely sold out at Barneys and Net-a-Porter). Here, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite leather numbers to get her look now.
