Dressmedaisy.com contributing editor Laura Terry talks us through the new hot trend: Leather
Once upon a time leather was restricted to a pair of gloves and maybe the odd biker jacket on the high street if you were lucky, but now, well, leather is having a bit of a fashion moment.
We say a bit, what we mean is more of a fashion revolution, because put quite simply you aren’t anywhere on the fashion charts this A/W, if you don’t have at least one leather item in your wardrobe.
Our favourite trend is leather for work, which may sound daunting to pull off, but trust us with Wallis’ stunning collection anything can be achieved.
Mix a leather skirt with a tailored blouse or opt for a fitted leather dress with killer heels to make a real impact.
If you’re bored of blazers or can’t find the perfect winter coat, why not go for a fitted military style leather jacket instead.
Here’s our favourite faux leather pieces from Wallis’ autumnal collection... don’t all rush at once now ladies!
1. Butterscotch mini-skirt, £30: Forget boring black and brown it’s allabout camel tones this winter, so be one step ahead of the fashion pack in this stunner. Team with a polo neck and patterned tights to rock the office 9-5.
2. Fitted black jacket, £55: This is the perfect seasonal jacket before a heavier woolly coat is called for. Smart and fashionable- an office must have!
4. Multirow necklace, £18: If you can’t quite bring yourself to doing top to toe leather, than why not opt for some leather accessories. This necklace is 100% chic and will look fantastic teamed with a plain t-shirt or work shirt.
