Leather shorts and fringed suede waistcoats. You may think that we are talking about the 60s and 70s, but no – this is yet another step back to the past.
If a rummage through your gran’s attic reveals a few vintage leather or suede items you will have found treasure indeed, for there are few hotter trends this season.
If not, there is plenty of choice in the stores.
Look out for leather or suede skirts and dresses, tops and jackets. Opt for soft suede shoes, bags and belts.
If you’re feeling bold go for jewel colours, otherwise pile on shades of brown and beige.
Distressed leather is a huge look – team it with denim for real edge.
