No surprise here, leather is back for fall. This cool-weather staple material is everywhere, both as a mixed-media accent and a full-on statement piece. This year, what I’m loving most is leather (or faux 100% polyurethane) in rich, seasonal colors. Deep emerald, bold plums, cherry red, burnt orange, and classic navy are some of my favorites.

Personally, I think a fun, colored leather jacket is the perfect trend piece for fall 2013. I, myself, am excited to sport my new moto jacket from BB Dakota. But, if that’s too much, why not layer on some leather wrap bracelets or find an affordable faux leather clutch!
