Sunflower scrunchies, corduroy jumpers, acid wash jeans, and leather jackets? Is it 1992? Thankfully no, but the 90’s sure are making a comeback. My core interest in this late 20th century revival–leather. Not only is leather resurfacing as trendy throwback pieces, but it is also transforming into a common textile for added detail in clothing items. Personally, I’m loving it. Five years ago if you were seen strutting around town in your leather getup, you would have been considered hardcore, even militant. These days, it ain’t no thang.
I have been sporting leather goods since I was just a wee babe. It’s actually what inspired this post (funny, I know). For my very first birthday, my parents purchased me a mini leather jacket and a toddler sized battery powered four wheeler. They may not have been the most practical gifts for a one-year-old, but hey, at least I looked cool, right? Interestingly enough, when I recently purchased my new adult sized leather jacket, it had me reminiscing on my former leather jacket days as a small child. I never would have imagined that my 3T sized apparel would make a comeback, but here we are! The 90’s have returned and they are in full swing folks!
To be honest, what started as a new found love for leather jackets has now turned into a bit of an all around leather lovin’ phase. I came across this cute little online boutique called Black Swan and I now have both an embellished faux leather tank and a faux leather pocket tee–I can’t get over it. Leather adds the perfect amount of needed spunk on a day when perhaps you’re feeling a little edgy. Although leather detail is mainstream at this point, the trend still makes you feel like you’re a trend setter. And, let’s be real, who doesn’t want to feel like they are totally rockin’ their outfit. I know that I won’t be getting over my leather craze any time soon–there’s no stopping it. Leather is here to stay! P.S. Don’t forget to use code Karlee at checkout while shopping at Black Swan Boutique to get 15% off of your purchase. Happy shopping!
