If the stars and street-style set are anything to go by, leather is having a major moment. And we’re not just talking about your classic black moto jacket or leather leggings—the timeless textile has been spotted in a range of hues, and worn in the form of skirts, dresses, coats and even jumpsuits.
To tackle the trend we suggest sticking to earthy colours like subtle shades of brown and green, but for something a little brighter, you can’t go past red, which is eye-catching but not OTT.
When it comes to silhouettes, skirts and dresses should skim over your body, rather than being skin-tight, and mid-length cuts like the below are a great option for melding the edginess of leather with a feminine aesthetic.
You can afford to go shorter when wearing styles with a bit more volume, such as Chloë Sevigny’s skirt or Arizona muse’s dress. Note that both stars counterbalance the impact of the leather by pairing it with something softer—a knit and a white shirt.
