It has reached that point in the summer when dresses and sandals no longer seem appealing, and all you want to do is throw on leather leggings and giant fur coats. Unfortunately, the weather won’t give in to our sartorial needs for quite awhile, but isn’t it nice to dream? Step into a futuristic utopia and embrace the patent leather trend that is bound to be everywhere this fall. We’re planning on taking a cue from Judy Jetson, who perfectly combined the retro styles of the '60s with a Space Age sensibility. For instance, this Courrèges jacket is sure to take you right out of summer and straight into the intergalactic beyond. If you’d rather make a statement right here on Earth, try a pair of patent leather pants from Marc Jacobs. They might not beat the heat, but you’ll certainly feel smokin'. If you’d rather stay cool, try a pair of Miu Miu Mary Janes or Dorateymur Filiskiye slides.
