LEATHER ON LEATHER
The MAN|November 01, 2020
Let's put this to rest, once and for all. You don't need to be in a biker gang to get your leather look right. Here's help to confirm your fashion credentials with this must-have in every guy's wardrobe
Chandni Kumar

LET’S talk about leather, leather and more leather. This fall is all about wearing leather in a new way, from trench coats to leather pants. This season you can also style it head-to-toe from different lapels styles like longline, bomber, oversized pieces, etc.

As a trend and a material, it offers a great variation in the types it’s available. These include variants like buckskin, chamois, goatskin, lizard skin, pigskin, ostrich or suede and others. All these materials have been known for its good looks, ruggedness, timeless appeal and comfort. Being a classic trend, this outerwear is constructed to last a lifetime. Let's say it'll age with you and come handy each time you step into the winter season.

In this millennial age, designers are getting more innovative and have shown us how versatile and stylish leather could be. Meanwhile, if you are not ready to commit to a full leather look, you can remain on trend by just adding a new leather piece to your closet.

Leather has dominated the runway with array of styles like wide-legged trousers, biker jackets, soft-leather trousers, high-shine leather shorts teamed with matching jackets, etc. It can be easily paired up with heavily styled bold zippers, waist belts and more that define utility wear in the world of fashion.

This coming month, we expect to see a shift in men dressing where they could favour sleeker, modern lines from their silhouettes. In lieu of this testing times, there is a huge shift in picking comfort essentials and with leather it’s likely to move towards keeping it simple.

Are you prepared to confirm your fashion credentials and take your wardrobe game to the next level?
