How much leather is in your wardrobe?

If you’re anything like me, there is probably at least a few pieces that you couldn’t resist – but have never quite got the confidence to wear.

Well, now’s the time to dig them out!

Here are the new leather rules – ways to wear leather that will leave you looking and feeling gorgeous.

1. Put the Black Back!

Put the Black Back!

Traditionally, leather has always been black.

Tight black pants, black blazers, black dresses… black gives leather it’s tough, attitude-filled look, but it can make it intimidating, too.

Make your leather more wearable by opting for more everyday shades, such as tan and nude, that are much easier to coordinate with the rest of your outfit too.

2. Mix Your Fabrics

Mix Your Fabrics

Think leather has to look tough?

Think again.

Eva Longoria has been snapped looking gorgeous in tan leather shorts, tan heels and a chiffon blouse teamed with a white blazer.2

Take inspiration from her fabric mix, and team your leather with softer materials and feminine colors for a whole new way to wear leather.

3. Opt for Detailing

Opt for Detailing

On the catwalk, leather is rarely plain.

It needs to catch the eye, and have buyers and journalists alike remembering each piece.

Buttons, studs and sequins are all easy additions, and laser-cut leather is a particular favorite of mine.

I’ve been taking inspiration from London Fashion Week, which was filled with leather shift dresses and futuristic designs.

4. Dress It down

Don’t keep your leather pieces for special occasions;

there are plenty of ways to wear leather in a relaxed style too.

Leather shorts can look gorgeous with a jumper or flats, and leather skirts look great teamed with jumpers.2

I love teaming nude shorts with a cami during the summer!2

5. Choose Midi Styles

Choose Midi Styles

It can be tempting to stick to the common leather items, such as leather trousers, mini skirts and tiny shorts – but there are some gorgeous more unique pieces too.

A midi-length leather skirt, for example, is a great way to wear leather for work.

Wear it with a blouse or smart jumper, and add a satchel or handbag and some heels to finish the look.
