Leather continues to be a great staple and welcome addition to any wardrobe. Whether it takes the form of a pair of classic leather boots or a more edgy leather dress, there is something for all. It serves as a great addition to any warm winter look.
2014 has seen an influx of leather fashion items in all shapes and sizes. A 90s influence can be seen when looking at pieces such as pencil skirts, trousers and dresses. However, these pieces have been given a modern edge with added embellishment, trimmings and a varied colour palette.
Jeremy Scott of Moschino has brought the fun back into the traditional look by mixing it with bright bold colours like pink and yellow. However, for a more wearable look, follow the likes of Fendi and opt for a burgundy piece which not only adds colour but is a key colour trend for the winter months. To carry the trend into summer, invest in items of a more neutral colour such camel. This will take you seamlessly into next year and can be teamed with crisp whites to get a more glamorous look.
Although there are a number of bold leather pieces to be found on the high street, those wanting a more subdued look could opt for some tailored items with simple leather trimming. Alternatively, add a leather boot or invest in a new leather handbag to get the look. A good leather piece won’t only make you look bang on trend but can potentially last a lifetime so choose wisely.
