I’m a sucker for leather goods, be they a moto jacket, pants, skirt or, in this case, a harness. In the past few years, harnesses have been seen on the runways of Ann Demeulemeester, Versace, Dsquared² and beyond. This accessory is no longer a fetish fashion trend, rather it’s a luxurious, structural and just plain beautiful add-on to almost any outfit.

Designer Zana Bayne takes her love of leather to a whole new level. She’s had some damn sexy collaborations with Victoria’s Secret, Prabal Gurung, Sally Lapointe and others. And to this day, no one does it better.

I wore a Zana Bayne leather harness (this one would look amazing with a long flowy dress) with a suspended skirt by UO (similar here), a Zara hat (similar by XXI), AllSaints biker jacket and my good ol’ Steve Madden combat boots (similar by Ash and Jeffrey Campbell).
