Despite it being classified as a winter fabric, we think leather looks best when worn against bare legs and arms, so Spring is the perfect time to bring out your old classics or invest in a new piece. This season there is a huge offering, from supple dresses to wear with pointy flats at work, to more adventurous pieces like fringed, embroidered or ruched skirts. The key with leather separates is to pair them with a demure item, such as a crisp white shirt or a luxe grey knit, keeping your look chic and sophisticated.
The shirt is a real staple, and most women have at least one or two in their wardrobe. This season designers have given it a makeover, adding anything from oversized cuffs to embroidery to give this classic a lift. So if you’re thinking of investing in a good shirt, consider one with something a little out of the ordinary. We would add to the general quirkiness with fringed or bowed accessories.
