Leather is something you must stock up this season to rock your trendy side. It not only keeps you warm but also adds a touch of style and luxury to your look. Leather is not synonymous with tough, biker look anymore. You can look chic and feminine, if you wear it right. Incorporate at least one item in leather — be it a jacket, a dress, a skirt, a pair of pants or boots — in your wardrobe.


Also, investing in leather is an intelligent decision as it never goes out of style.

How to wear:
Wear it right or you’ll end up looking like a clown. Avoid teaming up two leather pieces together. Wear only one item at a time like a statement piece. Leather is clingy and form-fitted. So if you are on the heavier side, avoid going for leather leggings or dresses, rather opt for a jacket which looks good on almost every body type. Leather boots come handy for everyone and you can choose between ankle-length, knee-length and thigh-high.

How to store:
Storing it right will prevent wrinkling and degradation. Always hang your leather clothes to maintain shape. Never store it in a plastic bag, instead use a cotton sheet to allow it to breathe. Keep it away from sunlight as it can cause fading. You can also apply leather conditioner to preserve leather quality and retain moisture.
