Hi ladies! Today, Emma from It's Emma Elise is guest posting for me about leather accessories. Enjoy! xo
This season, leather is back in style! But you don’t need to drop tons of cash to get this look. Here are nine luxurious finds for under $50.

Bow Barrette
Dress up your ponytail, braid, or top-knot with a cute barrette! This little bow comes in 48 gorgeous colors! Try pairing a neutral color bow with an all-black outfit for a look that everyone will love. Plus, investing in a more neutral color barrette will ensure that it matches almost anything in your wardrobe.

Classic Skinny Pants
Even in the dead of winter, real leather pants can easily start to feel hot and sticky! This pair of faux-leather skinny pants look and feel like real leather. However, they’re a bit more lightweight. Plus, they have jersey paneling down the sides, allowing for some extra stretch.

  1. Love it. As a big fan of bows myself, I find myself leaning more towards to the bows - you can wear them with anything.


    1. I love the bow as well. I just wanted to buy one in every color! Thanks for reading!


  2. The bow and red skirt still look obviously cheap to me...everything is still cute though :)


    1. I think most of these you have to see in person; it's so hard to judge if faux leather is cheap-looking, until you have it right in front of you! I'm glad you liked the post though. Thanks for reading!


  3. Great finds! I love every single item on this list!
