Personally, like many others I will never get bored of the ‘Leather Look’ which is once again proving to be a big hit this season. The black on black attire is not only sleek, edgy but also very slimming which is a definite plus. What also makes this one of the best trend’s this season is the way it can suit your own personal style from grunge to chic or urban to vintage. The high street stores offer a range of items which you can piece together yourself ready for your lectures, a day out in town or a student night out.

The Leather Look Joggers from Topshop is perfect if you want to feel comfortable yet stylish. This Urban look will go great with a simple basic vest top in black, gold accessories and a pair of Mesh Ankle Boots from Zara. Alternatively, switch the heels for a pair of Nike Kicks to sport a more casual look.


Leather Look Joggers – Topshop £38.00, Basic Vest Top – H&M £3.99, Mesh Ankle Boots – Zara £59.99

For a vintage inspired look why not go for Leather Dungarees. ASOS have a great range of Dungarees including the below Leather Look Dungarees. Match the gold goddess print blouse from Rokit (an online boutique that sells vintage clothing) and a pair of black patent shoes with a Gold Chain will complete this look.


Leather Look Dungarees – ASOS £33.00, Gold Goddess Print Blouse – Rokit £20.00, Prowl Black Patent – Office £65.00

Why not mesh together this season the leather and tartan trend with this leather look and jersey shirt with these tartan print trousers. Finish the look with a pair of black cut out boots from River Island and a Bowler Hat for a complete grudge look; perfect for a day full of lectures.


Leather Look and Jersey T-Shirt – Topshop £42.00, Tartan print Trousers – River Island £35.00, Black Chunky Buckle Cut out Boots – River Island £45.00, Bowler Hat – H&M £7.99

If you’re looking to go out for a student night out after a long day at Uni, then New Look is the High Street Store for you. New look are currently showcasing a range of dresses from the below Parisian black leather-look mesh bodycon dress to the black leather-look double pocket t-shirt dress. Pair both dresses with leather high heels and a clutch and you are ready to hit the club. Alternatively, you can go for the High Waist Leggings and if you’re daring to be bold with print then this Kizia Premium Aztec Crop Top is the one!

Editor’s Note

Like Rhona I am a huge fan of the leather look for both Women’s and Men’s fashion. The timeless staple is of course the leather jacket which is an absolute must have if you want to achieve the full leather look trend. Our favourite high street stores such as Zara, Topman/Topshop and River island have a wide selection of leather jackets for both Men and Women.
