Every week, The New York Times, Fashion & Style section posts a thematic compilation of street style photography featuring readers from across the world. For their latest series, The Times racked-up images of trendsetters wearing enembles with ‘Leather Details.’ And, this week, they chose a photo starring yours truly in lots of leather –sporting an air of biker femininity– outside Widener Library at Harvard. While channeling my tweed jacket with leather sleeves from Zara, I topped it off with a faux fur DKNY vest– to render a sophisticated urban look. By pairing my studded badass Steve Madden kicks with a ladylike leather-panel skirt from 3.1 Phillip Lim; I gave leather’s tough reputation a refined edge. On top of my photo published in The Times, I’ve included the original photos from my sartorial spread for this outfit below.
