Leather weather has arrived and these are the new-season pieces to add to your wardrobe

It would seem that leather weather is well and truly here, and aside from the obvious downsides, our wardrobes are set to look all the better for it. Here, we delve into the new styles of leather to add to your sartorial collections, and make a case for shaking up those trusty leather staples with some statement-making coats, daring dresses and sleek leggings to match.

Cool-Girl Coats

Putting a contemporary twist on the classic 90s leather blazer, the trend to statement-making leather coats is being driven by fashion’s cognoscenti, who are wearing theirs oversized, down to the ground, tailored and tonal. The leather jacket has never looked so good.

Daring Dresses

Why leave the leather to outwear only? This season, the sleek leather dress is having a moment, and is making a compelling case for a leather-first approach to dressing. One tip, ensure the style you choose is somewhat cinched at the waist to give shape to this often-overpowering textile.

Leather trousers have transcended their skin-tight and squeaky origins to become a bona fide essential in any fashion-forward wardrobe. Here, we suggest opting for straight-leg styles that give a bit of room to move.

Of course, new season leather wear isn’t just for the ladies. There is a plethora of chic, masculine styles for guys to adopt this winter, too. From leather bomber jackets to sleek, knee-length overcoats, these pieces belong in any sartorially-savvy arsenal.
