Feeling the Heat in Leather?

A new trend for the spring time is leather. It's more than just a leather jacket, however. Leather skirts, dresses, and bustiers are all the rage for the spring/summer.

My question is: Is leather really practical for summer? I understand those early months such as March and April where the transition from winter to spring occurs, but this trend is included for the summer time.

And I don't know about you, but I am currently spending my summer in North Carolina. The weather is constantly in the 80's and 90's (and sometimes in the 70's when it rains). And it's not even OFFICIALLY summer yet. How breathable could a black leather skirt be??

Maybe I'm wrong. Who knows? Maybe I'll even try it. If you want to get the look but your budget is low, (I know mine is) check out Charlotte Russe to get this Black Liquid Pencil skirt for only $14.99.

I know if I ever want to try this trend, I will need to lose some LB's in the hip and thigh area.

Hope you're all keeping cool!
