One of my favorite trends of the season is definitely the leather
look. Leather jackets make a comeback for about every year during autumn/winter, but this season the leather look is spotted all over the runways. And I’m not just talking about leather jackets. Think leather trousers, shorts, skirts, and even leather tops and dresses. While black is still the most dominant color, this season there are leathers in soft, powdery greys, rich camels and chestnut browns. If you really want to be on top this season, go for a vibrant red leather trouser as seen at Isabel Marant.
How to Wear
Now how do you get away with the leather look without looking like a s&m-fanatic? Simple, keep the rest of your outfit minimalistic and classy. This means avoiding the kinky aspects of leather by using other, softer fabrics like cotton, wool or chiffon or lace as seen at Céline to create a contrast.
A full leather outfit like the one from Bottega Veneta may look good on those models, but all that leather is simply too much on most people. If you want to create more of a rock-chick vibe, throw a simple t-shirt or top with a cool print on a pair of leather trousers and you’re good to go. Or opt for a leather jacket, a skinny jeans and some leather biker boots. Again, layering with different fabrics is the key.
