Tips & Trends | Styling Patent Leather

Shiny. Glossy. Lustrous. No, I’m not describing Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb (a must have, mind you). I’m describing patent leather-something either heavily slept on or adorned in the fashion community. Patent leather is a beautiful alternative to your traditional leather or even metallics. It adds a great pop of texture while looking sleek. It’s like putting icing on a cake. The first thing you look at is the icing (for me, I look at the whole cake but you get my point); similarly, patent is just as eye-catching. It can be styled in so many ways too, whether as an accessory, pair of shoes or even a jacket! Who doesn’t love that kind of versatility?
