A/W '12 Trends - Catwalk to closet - LEATHER

I think the leather trend is the easiest trend to incorporate into your daily outfits. Luckily for us, polyurethane exists, so if leather is out of your price range there is no need to panic!

Of course, there is black leather or PU which is a great staple. A black biker jacket will make an appearance every winter, if you can even put it away during the summer, so investing in a great quality jacket is a must. River Island have some amazing waterfall style biker jackets at the moment which are available in PU and in leather!

So, now that you've got the perfect black biker jacket, it's time to have some fun with pleather! Oxblood is the go-to colour this season, but why not push the boat out and go metallic?

If you aren't keen on pleather trousers or skirts, you can easily give a nod to the trend by wearing a pleather peplum belt with your favourite LBD or skirt. ASOS and Zara each stock such a belt at the moment.

How will you be wearing leather this season? Full on biker grunge, or a subtle hint of edginess?

Much love, Bemsy x
