How To Wear Leather for Autumn/Winter 2022
One of Autumn/Winter 2022’s most ubiquitous trends, leather left a deliciously buttery trail on the runway after multiple fashion-week appearances from Bottega Veneta, Loewe, Alexander McQueen and more. But this is no fleeting fad. When properly cared for, this sumptuously supple material is among the best investments you can make for your autumnal wardrobe.
On The Runway
This season saw designers honing in hard on head-to-toe leather looks – sleek maxi dresses at Victoria Beckham, matching co-ords at Hermès, corseted waists at Fendi and full skirts bolstered by fringing at Bottega Veneta.
Easy Ways to Wear Leather
As daunting as double denim can be, full-look leather can be tricky to master when styled off the runway. So, how to avoid The Matrix effect? Fashion photographer, stylist and Vogue contributing editor Candice Lake has a few failsafe ways to phase leather into your everyday wardrobe. “If you’re not entirely comfortable with a full leather look, break it up,” she recommends. “I personally love a sleeker look, so a leather skirt is my nod to the trend. It pairs perfectly with knitwear by day, and then you can put on a heel and, automatically, you’re in an evening look.”
"If you’re someone who wears boyfriend jeans, go for a looser cut, and wear leather trousers as you would denim – just with a jumper and trainers, for example"

"Accessories can also be a great way to play around. Beautiful, buttery leather accessories can build upon basics and elevate your wardrobe. Above all, though, experiment. It’s important to enjoy the process"
