Leather accessories have been used for thousands of years now. Leather is one of the oldest materials that man has used for making a varied number of things from horse saddles and whips in the past to bags and belts in the present day. Leather looks very cool and trendy and is very long lasting as well. Maybe this is why bikers prefer to wear leather jackets.
While leather belts, bags, watches, and shoes are pretty common, leather jewellery is a much more niche product that has been growing more and more popular. Leather jewellery can look rustic, bohemian, or chic depending on the look of the final product. You can combine leather with metal, stone, and other materials to create interesting textures and combinations.
There are some leather jewellery pieces that everyone should try at least once. Don’t dismiss it until you’ve tried it; give it a try and see if it suits your personality and your wardrobe.
The Wrist Cuff

The Leather Charm Bracelet
Leather charm bracelets have a very bohemian look to them. You can stack them up; you can add your own charms to it to make it a very personal and unique piece of jewellery. The best part about these is that, the older and more worn out they get, the better they look.

Leather jewellery will go quite well with pretty much any western outfit. You can pair them with leather shoes or belts but do not go overboard with the amount of leather you wear. The leather should stand out and make an impact and not look like you are covered in leather from head to foot.
