Take a tip from fashion guru Alexa Chung who was recently spotted looking utterly flawless in a sexy leather skirt and jumper. This look may seem simple but the subtlety of it all makes for a fashion hit – 10 out of 10 from me! If you want to follow in the footsteps of this fashionista Brit girl and sport a leather item this season then go for it. All you need to do is stick to a few little rules and you`ll be good to go.
Stay clear of dressing head-to-toe in leather – this is a massive no-no! Instead pick one leather item and work around it. Understated is the key here! The contrasting texture between a leather skirt and a knitted jumper is what makes the Alexa combination ooze a sultry coolness and also makes it appropriate to wear during the day. Either tuck in the jumper or go for a cropped style to show off your waist. It`s a gorgeous fashion fusion which will have you bang on trend for this season and is totally perfect for all this unpredictable weather.
A trusty leather jacket is also a great piece of clothing to have hanging up in your wardrobe. Team it with a pastel coloured jumper and skinny jeans for a dressed down day look with a smouldering edge. Dainty heels will bring a lady like essence to leather infused outfits too whilst a small classic clutch can help polish up your ensemble – ideal accessories for your chosen leather garments!
