Join the street crew with our guide to mak­ing the look work for you

Heat (UK) - - Employee Of The Week -

A/W18 is now in full swing, so it’s time to re­fresh your wardrobe. And this sea­son, leather is ev­ery­where – but it’s not just about your trusty jacket any more. From leather (or faux leather) leg­gings to pen­cil skirts and dresses, it’s time to up your game with this tex­ture.

Obvs, you need to style it up to work for you, so re­mem­ber what you want to show off and make this the fo­cal point of your out­fit – whether it’s your waist, legs or body shape.

Think this look isn’t for you? Well, the heat style team are here to show you how to wear it, no mat­ter what your shape or size.

MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU

Don’t be afraid to mix up your tex­tures with cosy knits or denim pieces – it’ll in­stantly make the look more wear­able.

If you want to em­pha­sise your waist, try a pa­per-bag waist­band on trousers or skirts and tuck in your top. Al­ter­na­tively, a trench­style dress that will nip you in. Sim­ple, yet ef­fec­tive.

If you want to bal­ance out your shape, draw the eye away for the area you’d rather not fo­cus on. Try more stream­lined shapes and fluted styles that will skim your fig­ure.
