Imogen Anthony Proves There Are 6 Ways To Wear Leather In 90 Degree Heat
The mark of an ultimate bada$$ has not changed since the days of James Dean. A leather jacket is still the coolest piece that will never go out of style. Just ask the hundreds of girls who wear their live-in leathers with scarves and jeans all winter. But what do you do when the sun emerges and those heavy jackets are just too hot? We know it’s possible to sport leather all year, since the number one style moment in Grease featured Sandy in a black jacket at her high school’s summer carnival. But the story goes that an extra had to be rushed to the ER from heat stroke after shooting that scene, and we’re not about that (those hospital dressing gowns that leave your butt exposed give us the heebie-jeebies). So instead of a standard jacket, we started looking around for some other ways to wear hot weather leather.
For some leather advice, we hit up our favorite Australian designer of WTR, Imogen Anthony. She once told us “I design for a woman who knows who she is, a woman who isn’t afraid to share that with the world. If the world doesn’t like it, she’ll tell it to go f*ck itself.” In our opinion, that woman wears black leather, and we knew Imogen agreed after seeing her serving up attitude in a black leather catsuit topped with cherry red lips.
Do you remember your first ever real leather? Imogen’s was amazing: a vintage leather belt with a Harley Davidson belt buckle on it. We could tell that her style has has evolved elegantly since, by her recommendations for sneaking leather into every outfit:
