How to nail the leather look
Join the street crew with our guide to making the look work for you
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.
