No matter which shop you look in there is one clear trend that sticks out: leather. I for one love this look, there are so many different ways in which to wear it without looking tacky. Always stick to black. Although you can find leather look in other colours, black is a safe bet. The quality is usually higher and there is less of chance that the clothing will have that plastic cheap look. Be careful when choosing pieces – there can be a chance of too much of a good thing.
1. Topshop, £40
So you want to go out? Not feeling like wearing a dress? These leather shorts are an ideal alternative to that over worn pair of denim hotpants hiding in your wardrobe. The hem line makes these otherwise plain shorts more interesting and they can easily be paired with any top to create a day or night look. At £40 they may not be the cheapest, but with student discount who could say no? Luckily these shorts come in petite and tall sizing meaning that everyone can have a pair.
2. Warehouse on ASOS, £85
A LBD is an essential item in every girl’s wardrobe so why not vamp it up this season with this structured leather dress and strappy neckline. The simple shape makes the panels stand out and is sure to make you the envy of everyone in the room. Reduced from £120 to £85, this dress may take a chunk out of your student loan but it is definitely worth it as an investment for a special occasion.
3. New Look, £19.99
I always find it hard to find a nice skirt that can be worn with a range of tops, but at the same time making a statement in itself. The asymmetrical hemline of this skirt makes an otherwise plain bodycon shape more interesting. For less than £20 this skirt is a bargain and could be dressed up or down making it a versatile staple for your wardrobe. It can be machine washed so no extra care needed.
4. Oh My Love, £32
You can never have too many t-shirts, so why not add a new oversized tee to your collection. The leather look sleeves turn a simple top into a fashionable statement look. Easily turned into a night time style with the addition of chunky jewellery, it’s perfect for those on a student budget. The style will flatter everyone and it is ideal for an autumn day.
5. Miss Selfridge, £28
It’s getting to that time of year again when jumpers are brought out, and summer clothes are hidden away. It’s time to add a contrasting jumper to your autumn wardrobe, the leather sleeves on this jumper contrast with the grey flannel, keeping with the current trends. This jumper ticks both boxes for comfort and style and is a must have for autumn. There’s no need to turn up to lectures in that old hoodie when this jumper is just as comfortable but far more stylish.
