Leather blazers are back – but how should you style them? (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Yet another fashion staple from days gone by is back again and we’re not mad about.
Worn by pretty much everyone from Winona Ryder to Cindy Crawford back in the day, now the leather blazer has more recently been seen on the likes of Bella Hadid, Hayley Bieber, and Emily Ratajkowski to name just a few.
It was a 90s staple suitable for pretty much any occasion, be it casual, business or more formal.
That might go a long way towards explaining why it’s back again in 2020 – the year of working from home where we grapple with a desire to wear more than just pjs but remain comfortable.
Now that the seasons have turned, it’s time for many of us to re-vamp our cold-weather wardrobe and a leather or pleather blazer could be just the thing to breathe a little life into your old favourites.
To make it work today, try pairing an oversized leather blazer with a mini dress and tights for a little extra warmth.
How to wear a leather blazer…
Smaller or bigger blazers will also work nicely with more casual attire like blue jeans and even the right tracksuit. If you want to keep your comfort but still elevate the look, wear with your favourite hoops and a necklace too.
Upon our eventual return to the office, your leather blazer can easily be work-appropriate over a pair of black trousers and a T-shirt or blouse.
You could also pair it with a flowing floral dress and heels if events like weddings are ever allowed again.
