Leather is usually reserved for outerwear and accessories, but for the winter season, the classic shirt has been given a leather update, making it one of the season’s must-have trends. Winter is a chance to incorporate seasonal textures into your style. Leather is just another fabric that can be used to create a contemporary look to navigate the cold.
How to wear a leather shirt?
Leather is a luxury fabric. In the form of a shirt, the fabric elevates the garment and opens the door to many styling possibilities. The shine of the leather shirt creates dimension, making it easy to layer and contrast against a variety of textures. Leather is a thicker material than your usual shirt fabric, which allows the shirt to be styled as a jacket. For a casual look, layer over your favourite top and wear with casual trousers.
Is there such a thing as too much leather? Not in my book. Style the leather shirt with leather trousers for the ultimate leather expression. Make sure you don’t get yourself worked up in a sweat, as leather is not the most ventilating fabric.
When choosing the right colour to team with a black leather shirt, white is an easy option as it creates a stark contrast. Otherwise, head into the world of beige with camel, taupes and browns.
