selena-gomez-sexy-leatherIf you love wearing leather (real or faux) because it makes you feel edgy and like you may-or-may-not drive a motorcycle, there’s no need to give up your favorite fabric just because it is summer. You should probably give your biker jacket a rest but you can wear other pieces in the summer without sweating buckets. You don’t need to limit yourself to just leather accessories.
