WIW: Trio of Leather & Bit of Blue

Back to work today after a long weekend - I started out today with my tweed front trousers and then added my blue cowl neck tank. I tucked the tank and added a black skinny belt to the trousers (it only has skinny belt loops). On top of that, I added my black leather blazer. For footwear, I've got on my Doc Marcie boots and my handbag is my black/cream one. That's three leather elements in today's outfit - blazer, boots and handbag. Is a trio of leather too much?

What do you think? does this work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Blazer: Danier Leather
Tank & trousers: Jessica (Sears brand)
Boots: Doc Martens
Handbag: Danier Leather (thrifted)

    Love! Different textures work so well here

    Love it Shannon! I would definitely wear every bit of it. It's not too much leather to my eye. You are one stylish lady!

  • replied 5 years ago

    Not too much at all! And the blue looks lovely with the blacks and greys -- not too much black either!

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    I love these pants with the jacket! And of course blue is my favorite color. Another fabulous Shannon creation!

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    You look wonderful! I like the bit of white added by the bag. Not too much leather.

    Not too much leather. Love the reverse blk/wht stripe in the pant/handbag.

  • Sona replied 5 years ago

  • cheryle (Dianthus) replied 5 years ago

    Definitely not too much. I love this outfit on you. You have incorporated color into the neutral scheme beautifully. Great fit on all the pieces too. Fab.

    Beautiful, Shannon! Love this combination and adore that blue on you. And...um...just LOOK at that jacket!!! :-)

  • Sarah A replied 5 years ago

    Love the three leather pieces.... so sleek. I am currently drawn to a lot of leather too, this is not too much at all. Plus you look amazing in that cobalt drape top!

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Great look! I don't think it's too much leather. I like the blue with your other neutrals.

  • Niefern replied 5 years ago

    This is a great outfit!

  • Parsley replied 5 years ago

    You look modern and fabulous, Shannon!
    I love the combination of leather and tweed, and the pop of blue is lively and fun with it.
    This is an outfit to repeat, for sure.

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Modern and fabulous are words that sprung to mind too! That blue is utterly scrumptious with your colouring.

    And your smile lights up the room. Love your positive energy.

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    Love the colors, the stripe on the trousers, the wonder jacket that elevates everything - you look fab!

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    Love that bright blue on you! The color just loves you! And I like the pairing of those trousers with the jacket. YLF!

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    Great back to work look, Shannon. The stripe on the pants gives the tweed a modern edge, the blue drape a bit of feminine energy and softness. I'd wear this anytime!

  • shedev replied 5 years ago

    Shoes and bag dont really count. I love the leather and tweed combination.

  • Tina.b replied 5 years ago

    I think pairing black and other dark neutrals with a pop of colour is part of your signature look. This is so modern and the shape of the outfit is beautiful. One of my favourites!

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Definitely works. In my world, shoes and bags don't really count as Leather Clothing Items, since I don't really use them in other fabrications too often. Leather jacket, top, and pants together would probably be too much, but this is perfect.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Tina - I think you're right. I enjoy wearing neutrals with one colourful piece.

    Thanks all!

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    I'm swooning. Blue is fab on you, such a great outfit.

  • Mo replied 5 years ago

    Way late to the party, but I love this with the textures of the tweed and the leather jacket!
