How To Style Leather This Spring
Leather should be a wardrobe staple for every woman. It can be worn in a variety of different ways, and (whether it’s leather or pleather) has a place in everyone’s wardrobe. Do you struggle to style leather? Do you question if it compliments your personal style or if it can be paired with the clothes you already own? Read on for our stylists’ professional tips.
The Leather Jacket //
The jacket adds an urban chic feel to any outfit. If your style is mostly preppy, a leather jacket thrown over a cable knit jumper or denim button up is the perfect look for you. We also love the leather jacket when it is incorporated with a pop of colour. Although leather is often interpreted as edgy, don’t be afraid to style it to make it your own. If edgy isn’t your thing, play with light colours on top and a set of dark washed jeans. This look is perfect for a evening out. The leather jacket can dress up your lounge wear if you throw it on over your quarter zip workout cover. We love this look by matching dark quarter zips with a black leather jacker and dark trousers.
A leather jacket can also help you utilise less-practical pieces, such as occasion dresses, by giving them a more daytime feel and making them more wearable.
The Leather Skirt //
A leather pencil skirt can transition from work to play and season to season with ease. We recommend styling an A-line leather skirt casually with a blouse and pair of ankle boots like we’ve out together below. Don’t be afraid to pick up different colours of leather as black is not your only option. The skater leather skirt always looks darling on the streets and is functional and comfortable for lounging around the flat. For a multi-seasonal look, we recommend styling this skirt with black tights to keep warm and a sweater or cropped denim jacket thrown over the top.
Leather Trousers //
Yes, leather trousers can suit everyone, it’s all about finding the right ones to suit your body-shape. Fit is the most important thing to consider before purchasing a fabric like leather or pleather. Not only are the trousers comfortable, but they also work well for both daytime or evening. Leather trousers can be daunting, but if you can match them with a long blouse or oversized shirt, they will give a flattering look and can help elongate the legs. We recommend looking for a pair with a leather front and stretch back to ensure the best (and most comfortable) fit.
