Add some edge to your wardrobe this spring with leather pieces

It’s time to do some spring cleaning, wardrobe style. Clear out those thick wool pieces and add some leather items to kick-start the season. With snappy flats, sexy skirts and structured jackets, the leather options are endless. Click through to find seven leather items that your wardrobe shouldn’t be without this season.

Lighter Leather Jackets

A leather jacket is a great staple item for your wardrobe, but for spring you’ll want a lighter version.

A definite spring look, this white leather jacket from Club Monaco won’t disappoint. It’s certainly an investment piece, but it will finish off any look. Throw it over a floral dress on those chilly days, or pair it will a tank and some skinny jeans for touring around the city.

This black leather jacket, also from Club Monaco, is the definition of sleek. It’s tailored and light, making it the perfect alternative to a blazer. This piece effortlessly transitions from office to evening outing. Just add some bold jewellery and some colourful pumps and you’ve got yourself a great look for this season.

Leather Skirts

A leather skirt definitely adds some spice to an office or evening look. Because it’s a heavy fabric, it’s best paired with a lighter top. Try a silk blouse for the office or a cotton tee with a bold necklace for an evening look.

Zara has a multitude of faux leather options, like this tube skirt, available in nude pink and sky blue. If you like to flaunt your legs, then try this mini skirt with an added zipper detail in light blue, brandy or black faux leather.

Black Leather Shorts

Leather shorts? Why not! Incredibly versatile, leather shorts can be used in place of a skirt for a night out and as part of a fancier weekend look.

This pair from J.Crew is made with lambskin, making them incredibly soft. Pocket detailing, both front and back, adds a bit of visual interest. And to finish off the look, pair these shorts with a button-up shirt (pictured above). A jean or cotton blouse works great for the weekend, while sheer and silk are the way to go for an evening look.

For a more feminine piece, go for these scalloped faux-leather shorts from Club Monaco. Playful and fun, these shorts are sure to jazz-up any spring outfit. Pair with some colourful pumps to really make the look.

Leather Bottoms

If shorts aren’t your thing, then try a pair of leather leggings or pants. The only rule? No flared bottoms.

These leggings from Dynamite feature faux-leather panels, which is great if you’re looking to add just a touch of edge to your outfit. The dark navy blue fabric makes the black of the leather pop, which means a stark-white shirt is the best choice to pair with these leggings.

For the full leather option, try these skinny leather pants from J.Crew. Patch pockets and subtle detailing make these bottoms worth the investment. Because these pants are all leather, pair them with anything but a leather jacket. Animal-print shoes really pull the outfit together (pictured above) and would work in a heel or flat option.

Neutral Leather Shoes

As rainy days start to dry up, swap your black leather shoes for some tan options. Wedges scream spring, making these glossy ones from Aldo a definite must. With a delicate ankle strap and a wood-like wedge, they’re both practical and adorable.

Show off your new pedicure in these flat sandals, also from Aldo. Combining the tan leather with bold straps of white adds personality to a sandal that will finish off any one of your spring looks. If darker shades are your thing, this sandal also comes in a dark brown with orange leather accents.

Bright Leather Shoes

Along with your neutral shoes, you’re going to want a bold pair, because a shoe collection really isn’t complete without them.

Steve Madden designed a spring heel oozing with sex appeal. These two-tone stilettos feature an adjustable ankle strap and a bright blue peep-toe which will style perfectly with a pair of those leather shorts.

For those weekend outings, choose these adorable flats from Kate Spade. Available in the bright zinnia pink (pictured above) or seafoam, these patent leather flats feature a structured bow and pointy toe. Slip them on with a white spring dress or white skinny jeans to really make the colour pop.

Leather Purses

Let’s face it: leather really is the best way to go when buying a purse. You may have to fork out a little more money, but the purse will reward you with its durability and lifespan. Especially when it’s from Kate Spade.

This petite messenger bag is perfect for spring. You can pair it with any outfit, and the white leather screams spring freshness.

If you want to go bolder, then try Kate Spade’s Cedar Street Elissa bag. Available in five different leathers, you’re sure to fit all your new spring cosmetics and more in this purse.
