As the weather cools and fashionistas prepare to step out in luxurious outerwear, there’s nothing quite like leather for a versatile layer. Whether you’re heading to the office or simply keeping warm on the weekend, leather trench coats are the latest must-haves for the season. Try drawing your inspiration from the Fall 2016 runways, and embracing long leather outerwear in the weeks ahead.
For the weekend, embrace a shiny black leather overcoat adorned with bold white stripes (as spotted at Tommy Hilfiger). A waist-cinching belt, funky military buttons and a statement collar help to complete the overall design. Meanwhile, the rebellious aesthetic and the contrasting striped accents are perfect for a low key, laidback Saturday look with a slight edge.
Follow the leading example at Calvin Klein, where soft black leather and luxurious fur created a beautiful statement. Step out in a dark fur-trimmed coat which will surely make a great impression during business hours. For a finishing touch, a little black dress and sensible black Oxfords can easily wrap up your chic workday ensemble.
For the evening hours, trade your classic black leather trench for a gleaming tan pleather creation (as seen at Proenza Schouler). The double-breasted silhouette and plush shearling collar helps to complete the look, while a coordinating purse seals the deal. Accessorize your sleek topper with a pair of high boots and dangling earrings, for the ultimate in autumn glamour.
