Leather, love it or hate it its here to stay!

Leather has become a real staple in every girls wardrobe and those who shunned it this time last year are starting to give it a go.  But I have noticed that a lot of my clients panic on how to buy in to the trend so I thought I would show you a few key items that are an easy starting point for a LEATHER VIRGIN!!

For any shape and size I think there is a leather option out there and the easiest way to start is with a trouser... Gasp!  Yes I know your all thinking of the scene from friends where Ross gets stick in his leather pants, but leather or Pleather trousers are not like they used to be.  They have much more stretch and there are even options that are part legging or Trouser rather than full Leather:

Hoss Intropia do a fab option with a relaxed waist for £470, on the expensive side but the waist is worth it!
Or for you gals who don't have to worry about the waistline Zara do these for £25.99 and the leg has quite a bit of stretch.

And for those of us that have more curvy legs these leather panel leggings from Topshop £28.00 are great at slimming the leg, are super comfy and super stylish!

Of you really aren't a trousers girl, fear not as there is an abundance of leather on the high street in skirts and dresses too that will get your wardrobe back into action.  First off are my 2 favourite skirts from the high street:

First is a fab Burgundy pencil skirt from H&M £69.99 that will look super chic for day or night and the colour makes it stand out from the usual leather options!

Then for the more playful girl this skater style from Oasis £42.00 in army green will look great with a chunky gold knit tucked and is super easy to wear! 

Another way to get leather into your wardrobe is to add it into your work wear and I think classic shift dresses with leather panels inserted is a great starting point.  This first dress is by The Fold a fab on line company that specialise in amazing work wear and this Brompton Navy dress £375.00 works a treat and in the Navy gives the leather a much softer feel.

Zara also do a very similar idea with this Houndstooth dress £39.99.  The great thing with these dresses is that if you want to soften the leather you can layer fabulous blouses underneath for day at the office then loose the blouse and add statement jewellery for evening. 

I hope this has inspired you to give Leather a try if you haven't already. x
