The East Coast has been experiencing a heat wave the past few days, so for any of us in N.Y.C., it’s hard to understand why exactly anyone would choose to wear leather right now, which seems to be the fabric of choice on the West Coast.
So we did some digging. And it turns out the weather out in L.A. has been just as hot as in N.Y.C. On Saturday it reached 87°, and Sunday saw a 92° high temperature. The lows hit 65° and 72° respectively (barely cooler than N.Y.C.’s nightly mid-70s streak). Yet, stars like Vanessa Hudgens, Kylie Jenner and Selena Gomez are piling on the hot-weather leather.
