Autumn/Winter 21 trend alert! Creative and unexpected use of leather


After a stunning summer/spring season of being all about the rustic 70s trend with it’s beautiful bright floral palette that clashed stunningly with its natural materials and muted browns and tans, the 70s have begin to make their funky way into autumn and winter wear for 2021!

Sleek silhouettes, wide leg trousers, funky patterns and bold statement pieces – we couldn’t be happier that the utterly cool decade is hanging around. And with its winter/autumn reincarnation, it brings with it a must-have material – leather.

Durable, stylish and an absolute essential for this coming season, creative use of leather is what this season’s style catalogue is all about.

Loulou Studio Noro Wide Leg Leather Trousers (RRP €550.00)

These wide leg, high rise, smooth finish leather trousers are totally on trend as the skinny trousers slowly become a vanishing breed. Loulou Studio's collections are filled with designs that Parisian Influencer Chloé Harrouche wanted to buy herself and the Noro trousers are just one of them. They're made from buttery smooth leather and framed to this season's favourite cut— a high-rise waist and a flowing wide leg. Pair with slim heels and a slick top for a total rock-chick look.

Arnotts Weekend Max Mara Valdez Leather Blazer (RRP €590.00)

Another wardrobe staple that you’ll be seeing everywhere this season, the leather blazer has already made its way into plenty of women’s summer wardrobes when paired with a sexy bralette and wide leg pants. The peaked lapels, and front flap pocket details means the Valdez blazer captures the sophisticated style of Weekend Max Mara. Crafted from 100% supple leather, it’s detailed with a back vent and front flap pockets. Coordinate yours with a pair of cropped trousers and heeled boots for a modern, edgy look.

OSKIA leather crocodile patterned trousers in mushroom (RRP €393.00)

The Oskia 100% leather high-waisted trousers in mushroom are boldly crafted from premium butter-soft leather which is embossed with an exotic crocodile pattern. High waisted with a pleated front. They cut an elegant and tapered statement piece. Wear yours to special evening events with a cami tucked in loosely.

French Connection Florence lace and faux leather dress (RRP €114.00)

The creative and unexpected use of this fabric is a major detail in this season’s runways. For example, faux-leather detailing brings a tough edge to the Florence Lace Dress, contrasting a punk and feminine look. The embellished bodice falls to a low V-neck at the front, plunging at the back, while the gathered lace skirt swings from the fitted faux-leather waistband. Wear on its own or, for extra comfort, pair with a camisole or simple cotton t-shirt underneath.

Tommy Hilfiger Rouge Leather Dress (€690.00)

We absolutely adore this retro statement dress! Pioneering spirit meets urban Americana in the Tommy Hilfiger collection, showcasing country-inspired checks, rich textures and crest embroidery for a fresh spin on heritage style. Feel totally rock 'n' roll in this feminine leather dress that's cut in a mini length and a flattering fit. And then best part? It has pockets!
