This season, leather is one trend I am determined to get on board with, as it has passed me by for several seasons past while it has been building it’s fashion credentials. Leather is often an investment but the fact that it has been persisting through the last few years (even into summer seasons,) is backing up it’s promise of longevity and so I’m ready to make the leap. I thought I’d round up some of my favourite pieces on the high street now, both budget bargains and higher end luxe items. One last thought for you; If this is a trend you want to try, then buy now as you’ll get your wear out of the piece throughout the season and really feel the cost per wear.
Whistles Joni leather hoodie £350 // M&S Autograph panelled leather skirt £149 // Warehouse drape jacket £140
Leather pony effect skirt, Topshop £220 // Leather box effect tee, Topshop £95
Carrie Leather legging, Reiss £495 // Topshop Leather and denim mix tee £55 // Onyx quilted burgundy leather jacket, Reiss £495
I’m totally in love with that burgundy Reiss jacket, but for a more affordable take on the trend and a double check in the fashion boxes for the blush shade too, you can’t go far wrong with a Topshop ‘box effect’ Tee. Warehouse also wins for wearable style with it’s waterfall style soft looking jacket. What I really want however is a skirt, and again, I’ll be trying to find that Topshop number up there for affordability and style in one.
Have you got any leather items or have you seen any you’re lusting after?
