Shop the Trend: Laser Cut Leather


Leather has always made my heart beat a little faster. In my overactive imagination, it’s the armor of choice for snarling motorcycle gangs, cigarette-smoking rebels who skip gym class and feisty vixens on the mean streets of New York. Dressed in leather, a lady transforms into a badass chick.

For those of us who might be intimidated by the material's inherently rugged connotations, the Spring 2013 runways provided us with a surprisingly sweet alternative: laser cut leather. The intricate cutouts make you look feminine and demure, while the leather itself offers the perfect amount of attitude. Check out these floral designs and perforated patterns that will instantly up your cool factor. (And we’re not just talking about the built-in ventilation! Ba-dump-bump.)
