Exposed: Zips and Pleather, Oh My

There’s a new look in town, one that’s making headlines—perhaps you’ve heard of the “exposed” trend? It’s all about the unexpected, like zippers and pleather used to spice up solids and add interest to prints, taking your pre-fall wardrobe to the next level.

We love how a simple faux-leather detail along the collar of a basic woven top, or a little lace on a sheer tank, turns staples into a fierce cocktail party looks.

And why stop there? This hot trend is burning up “classic” pieces like dresses and skirts, leggings and jackets—even accessories! Get ready to hone the edge of your personal wardrobe – check out our fave zipper and pleather trends, below.
