The thing I love most about fashion is that it’s never stagnant. There are always new trends emerging and others being put out to pasture, only to return 20 years later if the present day old-school fashion trends are anything to go by. Because things are always ebbing and flowing in fashion, my tastes are constantly evolving as well. I tend to get bored with my wardrobe easily (anyone else?), so when my tastes take a drastic turn, I always welcome the opportunity to reinvent my style. Changing up my look regularly is what keeps me so captivated with fashion and purses—I really can never get bored with the steady flow of new designs constantly being churned out! Recently the biggest shake up in my personal style is my newly developed obsession with embossed croc leather, a look I passed over for years. Recently I’ve had a big change of heart and I am loving all things croc embossed, largely in part to Kaitlin’s Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Nano.
I find croc embossed designs to be so chic and elevated, and it often makes an item appear more expensive than it actually is, which is always a nice perk. While some embossed designs are made from synthetic materials, many are created with genuine leather. Embossed leather gets its appearance from extreme heat and high pressure stamps, the end result being the elegant design of croc embossed leather that I have come to love so dearly. You can find croc embossed designs in a shiny or matte finish, and I personally am loving the look of both. The textured design of a croc embossed bag creates a richness that smooth leather is just unable to match, which is a big reason I have gravitated towards the look so strongly. Luckily there’s no shortage of croc embossed designs available right now, so you will be spoiled for choice if you choose to delve into the look. Since croc embossed bags can be found in a variety of sizes, materials, and price points, you can choose how deep into your pockets you want to go in order to achieve the look.
