Fall's New Leather Fashions Glam Up Long Locks

We're seeing a big trend this Fall, with the use of leather leading the way. Leather jackets, pants, skirts and boots are everywhere, and it's not just black.  As a matter of fact, Kim Kardashian made news again this week with her fashion mis-step with leather (mixing a bulky yellow jacket with short black shirt that wasn't very flattering on her).

Poor wardrobe coordination aside, this is a great opportunity for women with long hair, especially those with quality hair extensions, to flaunt their stuff. Leather fashions throughout the years, have always seemed to look better when the woman wears her hair long, loose and full. Just notice the leather-clad women in the videos below.

So, consider bringing out your daring side and go for long, full hair with your leather fashions. Here's some looks to consider:

What's really different with the Fall 2013 Leather Trend is that it appears it'll be here to stay for awhile. Sneak peaks at the Spring lines show that they continue to have strong offerings in leather even as the warmer weather makes it's way back!

It certainly looks like a touch of leather here and there can serve to accessorize your hair extensions quite beautifully! Have some fun with the new trends.
