We think every woman’s wardrobe should include a sufficient amount of leather; it’s effortlessly stylish and adds instant texture to any outfit (plus its warm – a basic necessity...). Whether you opt for a tailored and tight-fitted shape or go oversized and understated, leather never fails to compliment a look. Now that, this season, we've a range of buttery soft leather pieces to invest in - it makes sense to stop buying that faux biker every autumn and invest in a few premium pieces to see you through endless seasons instead. As leather, has never left the catwalk.
Here are three must-have pieces (okay, two - but both colourways of the Leather Leggings are on our wishlist!)
The Leather Jacket
A Leather Jacket is our ultimate cross-season saviour; it’s an everyday essential, with the style power to dress up a plain white tee or dress down office-bound attire. It can toughen up a floral dress or achieve minimalistic chic when paired with denim jeans... It works with chunky knitwear, sheer blouses, statement tees and even sequins - you name it, a leather jacket can compliment it. So it’s by no surprise that we’re lusting after the Jet Leather Jacket, which is classic in shape and style, and has ended up at the top of our investment list.
A sophisticated way to show case your legs, soft leather leggings are a contemporary combination which tick all the right boxes. Flattering, practical and ideal for layering, leather leggings bring edge to any outfit with ease. Pair with loose shirts, casual cable knits or daring double-leather for off-duty cool. Add leather heeled boots to create the allusion (or reality for some) that your legs are never ending. Choose between our classic black shade to master monochrome or go burgundy for a more transitional tone. This timeless investment piece will become an instant asset to any capsule wardrobe.
