Whatever the season, leather never goes out of fashion, and what could be better to bring a touch of timeless elegance to your winter wardrobe than something stylish in leather? Start shopping around for leather clothing and accessories and you’ll be spoilt for choice, so to make your decision easier here are three fantastic ways to wear leather this winter.
If retro chic is your style, a vintage leather satchel could be the perfect accessory. You’ve probably spotted satchels all over the high street in your favourite stores, as well as on the shoulders of the most stylish girls about town, and with so many to choose from in a variety of sizes, colours and styles, it will be easy to find the perfect partner for your winter wardrobe.
Offering plenty of handy storage and crafted from hardwearing leather, a leather satchel is the perfect combination of timeless style and every day practicality, and can be taken from the office to the bar with ease. Want a satchel which doesn’t just look retro but is in fact authentically vintage? Try browsing the vintage shops and you might just find a gem. Alternatively, there are a number of craftspeople selling their work online, so why not get searching to discover the best swanky satchels available on the web?
Leather Skater Skirt
The best thing about leather is that it can be both smart and casual depending on how you wear it. Skater skirts are the skirt of the moment, and just like leather they work equally well as both formal and casual wear. A leather skater skirt combines the timeless style of leather with the on-trend shape of the skater, and is sure to become one of your favourite pieces in your wardrobe.
Whether dressed up with a smart blouse and jacket for the office, teamed with chunky knitwear and winter boots for a more relaxed feel, or accessorised with your favourite heels and handbag for a night out, your leather skirt will come to the rescue in many a sartorial situation. Choose a classic black for something that will always be in fashion, and add a pop of colour with your choice of top and accessories.
Undoubtedly the most popular way to bring leather to your winter wardrobe, a good leather jacket will last you a lifetime. Throw it on over your dress during the party season to keep the evening chill at bay with something suitably stylish, or layer it with knitwear and a comfy scarf to keep warm on a winter’s day. Coats may come and go, and a jacket is just a jacket, but a leather jacket is a piece of clothing you are sure to love for years.
Leather jackets can be pricey, but this is one investment which you are certain to get years of enjoyment out of, so why not treat yourself? Second hand leather jackets can be picked up for a lot less than a new one, and many will have that popular worn-in look that epitomises vintage style. Whatever your price range, there will be a leather jacket just for you.
There you have it – three fantastic ways to add the luxury of leather to your winter wardrobe. Now the coldest season can be the most stylish too.
