I can’t talk leather without bringing up Ross Geller’s infamous pants incident that resulted in “some sort of paste!!!” on Friends. Now that it’s out of my system, I can tell you how utterly obsessed I am with the trend. Of course, leather jackets and pants are nothing new, but according to Spring and Summer’s most wearable trends for 2020, the concept of leather dressing is more prominent than ever. I, in turn, am here to explain how you can wear this trend IRL, because even though I love a luxe leather (or faux-leather!) piece, I know how tricky it can be to pull off with ease.
I tend toward neutral colors, and find black and brown leather pieces to be most versatile and easy to wear. The perfect starting point for a stylish leather outfit! Despite the fact that I subscribe to a rather minimalist aesthetic, I find that leather pieces with clean lines and minimal embellishment are best regardless of your chosen silhouette, be it a buttery-soft leather dress, high-rise trouser, or oversize shirt. My third hot tip? Let a single leather piece be the focus of your outfit, then ground it with wardrobe basics like jeans, a plain turtleneck, or a simple black boot. Trust me, your look will stand out whether that’s the aim or not. In fact, you’ll likely emphasize the exquisiteness of a leather item by streamlining the rest of your outfit.
Without further ado, ahead, keep reading for three ways I’m wearing the leather trend now and into Spring. Then, shop all of my outfits head to toe – I’ve managed to source most of my exact pieces and similar styles with affordable alternatives in the mix, too.

Here’s what Meghan Markle used to wear before she met Prince Harry
Thanks to her turn in Suits and her stint as a part of the royal family (albeit brief), Meghan Markle has become one of the most prominent people in the world.
As well as her acting prowess and charitable endeavours, Meghan’s sartorial choices have become somewhat iconic.
Whether she’s plumping for high-end Erdem gowns or opting for more low-key Canadian designers, Meghan’s style knows no bounds.
However, much like sister-in-law Kate Middleton, before she joined ‘The Firm’, Meghan’s style was a different story.
Back in the early 2010s, before meeting her now-husband, Meghan’s wardrobe consisted of pared back jeans, jumpers and co-ords that wouldn’t look out of place in Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe.
Fast forward a few years and Meghan is now working closely with her stylist, Jessica Mulroney, with whom she forged a friendship on the set of Suits, with Jessica helping style Meghan for the show. Jessica was the brains behind the wedding dress Meghan tied the knot in on the show. As Meghan’s star rose in Hollywood, Jessica was on hand to style her for red carpet appearances. It was thought that Jessica helped style Meghan for the royal wedding and as the photos attest, Jessica was on hand to chaperone Meghan’s bridal party into the church. In fact, her twin boys, Brian and John, were page boys with Prince George and her daughter, Ivy, was a bridesmaid alongside Princess Charlotte.
Here, we look back at the outfits Meghan wore before she met Prince Harry…
