No one can argue with a classic biker jacket. Whether you’re vamping it up for a full-on rock chick look, or adding a twist to a soft summer dress, the leather jacket is a wardrobe essential. A leather jacket instantly adds a bold element to your outfit, so you can make it as subtle or daring as you wish depending on the other clothing, colours, accessories and shoes you choose to wear. Be as brave or daring as you wish.

Skirts and Shorts

For an underplayed but statement look, a pair of leather shorts or a skirt can automatically add interest and intrigue to an outfit. Opaque tights make leather shorts appropriate for any season. For skirts, choose a bodycon style for a sleek silhouette, or to hide lumps and bumps try a flattering A-line fit.

Detailing and panelling

If you’re not brave enough to take the plunge and acquire a full article of leather clothing you’ll probably be better off trying those with leather detailing instead. Some pieces feature cute and subtle detailing such as panelling on dresses or Peter Pan collars on shirts. Tops and jackets with leather sleeves provide a stunning and unique look.

Alternatively, heavy coats with leather bodies and cloth arms create a casual retro look. Accessories also create a statement look with leather infiltrating jewellery stands and ‘leather look‘ nail varnishes appearing in beauty stores. And who can deny how classic a pair of leather heels and matching leather clutch look? Instant elegance.
