Lovers of AW19 leather, rejoice.
Not only is this luxurious fabric recently made a comeback, but it’s fiercer than ever.
The timeless black hue has been joined by an array of neutral tones for Autumn/Winter 2019 following on from the beige trend of Spring/Summer 2019. And boy, are they dreamy.
Whether you invest in just one or multiple options to satisfy your Autumn/Winter wardrobe, here are 3 key pieces that will help you stand out in style this season.
1. The Long Coat
Look like you belong in the cast of The Matrix by opting for a long, black coat as your winter cover-up, as seen on the catwalks of Tom Ford and Tommy Hilfiger.
Want to make optimal impact? Embrace head-to-toe maximalism by throwing yours on over a leather dress with a corresponding bag and boots for a night out on the town.
Alternatively, pair this charismatic coat with skinny jeans, a plain t-shirt and chunky trainers to inject instant cool into a smart-casual outfit.
Either way, you’re guaranteed to turn heads for all the right reasons.
2. The Tailored Shirt
Another leather hero piece that works well for layering during the transitional period is the tailored, button-up shirt.
Whether you choose a classic black or white version inspired by Bottega Veneta or one of the taupe tones that reigned supreme at Fendi, this shirt style is ideal for work or play.
Just team it with a midi-length skirt and court shoes for an opulent office look. Or swap the skirt and court shoes for jeans and brogues to channel casual androgyny if you’re meeting a friend for coffee or lunch.
Now, that’s what I call tres chic!
3. The Sassy Skirt
Finally, you can easily put a feminine spin on a more formal outfit with a sassy leather skirt.
Opt for a pretty pleated variety following in the footsteps of Maison Margiela. On the other hand, a simple black pencil skirt a la Louis Vuitton will enhance your natural silhouette.
You can even team the tailored, button-up leather shirt and skirt pieces with black boots and metallic accessories to create a captivating combination.
Either way, I’m in love with this little number.
Leading the Way in AW19 Leather
When done right, wearing an AW19 leather key piece has the power to stop traffic.
That said, it tends to lose its lustre if you don’t rock it with confidence. Therefore, it’s important to only choose separates that you ultimately feel comfortable in.
Now, go and show them how it’s done.
