The worst of Winter is over and the days are getting longer. This means we can start getting out our leather pieces again without feeling the serious chill! Leather never goes out of fashion and it’s evident why but each season this versatile fabric does reinvent itself with new trends and styling details. Here’s how you can build multiple leather outfits for every occasion, taking you from your morning cup of coffee to your last glass of wine at night!

The Office Outfit

Most days unfortunately or fortunately depending on job satisfaction, starts with work. You can pull leather pieces into your work wear wardrobe if you’re clever. Often when we think of leather we think feisty, seductive and brazen, words that aren’t very conducive to an office environment. We tend to forget that leather can also be soft and sophisticated, luxurious yet professional, you just have to choose the right pieces with the right finish. Try suede finishes rather than shiny or matte and obviously choose a work wear appropriate colour palette. Keep your leather pieces to your outerwear and footwear choices to play it safe or add a long length leather skirt if you’re feeling daring. A hint of leather on knitwear is a great way to add texture and pull in that sassy skirt too.

The Retail Therapy Outfit

If it’s the weekend and there’s no work to be had, you’ll definitely need a comfortable and stylish leather outfit for some much needed retail therapy. A printed skirt with leather accents is a great base for your weekend outfit. Go wild with colour and motif to be at the top of the trend game. For a sophisticated look, don’t forget to balance out your top half with block colour to complement. Full leather tops in neutral colours are the perfect side dish to your attention grabbing skirt and if it’s high waisted, you can pull off a slight crop for a daytime look. Add some suede block heeled booties for height with comfort as you’re pillaging the racks and finish off your outfit with a boot matching jacket.
