This is an update of the leather look/waxed denim trend you can see Part I by clicking here. The more I see this trend, the more I start to like it more and more. It is just amazing what they can do. Many brands are now coming out with their own styles. Some are even combining it with some of Fall’s biggest trends.
I am particularly fond of the Rich and Skinny Cargos in Slick Black. They would look prefect for night out with just a basic tank, skinny belt, and a blazer. The J Brand 912 in Venom (pictured on Sandra Bullock above) are also great. They look just like leather. Then there are their new Houlihans… they have come out with them in a wash called Stealth, which is a waxed black, that is sure to be spotted on some celebs. J Brand didn’t just combine it with the cargo trend for fall, but also with printed denim. They have a pair of waxed camouflage style jeans in their famous 901 Leggings fit.
They don’t just come in super skinny/legging styles either. Citizens of Humanity have come out the Joy Waxed wash in their slouchy skinny Edge fit and the Thompson, which is a high-waisted skinny. Rock & Republic have also come out with the trend in a straight leg style. So why opt for real leather when you can get the same look with these animal-friendly styles for a fraction of the price?

Lea Michele was seen having some dinner with her boyfriend and some fellow cast members of Glee in Los Angeles, California. She was wearing a pair of denim shorts. I’m not sure who they are by though, but I actually like these shorts on Lea. They really suit her easy style very well. I actually like this whole look, every article of clothing really works together. It sort of reminds me of when Mischa Barton’s style sense was at its prime.
Lea has gotten quite a few praises over the past few months for her style sense. At first I didn’t see it, but now I am starting to. She really likes to take some risk but also keeps her look simple and true to herself. Also, the new season of Glee is starting soon. Are you readers excited?
Katie Holmes was seen out in New York with husband Tom Cruise (who is most likely wearing his Ralph Lauren jeans) and daughter Suri. She was wearing a pair of MiH New York jeans in True Blue throughout the day. Katie seems to be quite a fan of their jeans lately. I think she looks amazing in their flares, especially the last time we spotted her wearing them. I truly think that MiH make such flattering flares for the women. Their jeans really give the illusion of slimmer longer legs.
I miss Katie being so frequent on the blog. She has such amazing denim choices. But she has been very low-key for the past couple of years and now she usually only gets spotted every few weeks or so. She must be really good at tricking the paparazzi.
