Tough Love

“This look is very nice for Valentine’s Day if you’re the type of girl who enjoys a casual meal, going to the movies, or grabbing a cup of coffee. You have the red from the sweater, but also an edgy touch with the leather shorts (if you have a very cold winter, try leather pants). I got these leather shorts from Forever 21. And the necklace will attract everyone’s attention up toward your face.” — Adriana, Fake Leather

Wear it yourself tip: Not into leather? Why not swap leather pants for a black legging? You’ll get the same tight, black look for a fraction of the price. And if you love the shine of the leather, many companies make pleather leggings as well as cotton.
