There’s no denying leather is yet again the in-piece of the season. With a versatility that can make it work from day to night and season to season leather pieces are a staple to have in any wardrobe. This year we are seeing more colours of leather items coming up with autumnal shades of browns and nudes dominating over the classic black.
If authentic leather is not your thing, or within your budget, many brands are now offering faux leather and vegan leather alternatives which while being more sustainable are also more affordable. With leather items being such a timeless wardrobe staple it is even easier to find some pre-loved pieces to fit your budget.
Below are some trendy ways to wear your leather pieces.
Leather pants have had their moment time and time again resurging each season with new styles. This year flared pants and wide leg trousers are the most popular way to wear them, reflecting the trending pants styles at the moment. Leather flares can be dressed up for a night in town with heels and a crop top or for an everyday look with a tucked-in jumper and boots. If you are looking for something more timeless, leather leggings are simple and can be styled up or down for an elegant or casual look.
The leather blazer is a fashion trend seen everywhere at the moment. Coming into street styles in recent years, the trend has blown up due to its versatility and its ability to make any outfit chic. You can style a leather blazer with a dress, tights, and boots for an instantly fashionable autumn look.
Leather shorts are one of my favourite autumn pieces and one that has stuck around and will stick around for many years. Styled with a pair of tights and a cosy knit creates a simple, effortless outfit that looks stylish and classy. Leather shorts can be also worn in the evening too. Style with a pair of heels and a blazer instead and you have an instantly glam look.
You can never go wrong with a leather jacket. A leather jacket is one piece that will never go out of fashion due to its ability to be worn in so many different ways. Whether you’re a fan of a more 80s inspired oversized leather jacket look or a classic fitting one, leather jackets can be worn with any number of outfits. This autumn, try pairing it with flared jeans and a white t-shirt for a classic look kept on trend.
Not forgetting the ultimate item that everyone should have in their wardrobe, a pair of leather boots. From Dr Martens to Chelsea boot styles there are so many diverse types of leather boots to match everyone’s taste. Platform boots are the must have this season and can be worn in so many different ways. From a casual college outfit of leggings and a knit jumper to a dress with tights, a pair of boots can be worn with anything.
