If there’s anything Londoners know well, it’s bold, grungy style. With the genesis of the punk fashion subculture based in London, leather is a mainstay in the British fashion scene. But these days, it doesn’t always have to be hard-core to be bold. Some of my choice London fashion people are opting for double-leather outfits, modern silhouettes, and dichotomous styling for statement leather looks.
Whether or not you’re a daring dresser, I’m convinced leather has a place in every wardrobe. A classic pair of leather boots, an easy leather jacket, or an everyday leather bag are simple ways to integrate leather into your closet. If you’re a little more experimental, longline leather shorts, a leather blazer, and patent pieces are polished yet adventurous ways to add in this bold material.
I’ve turned to some of the chicest Londoners for inspiration on how to leather up this winter. Plus, I added in some can’t-miss shopping below for upping your leather wardrobe.
