If there is one material that dominates the fashion trends for the autumn/winter season, then it simply has to be leather. We saw some unbelievable leather looks on the runways from major fashion players such Hermès, Fendi, Victoria Beckham, Armani and Bottega Veneta.
From head-to-toe leather looks to cute preppy skirts and buttery leather trench coats to stylish leather handbags - you need some leather in your wardrobe this season and what better way than with some vintage leather. This week, I have gathered some of my favourite wearable leather pieces from the current selection at www.myvintage.uk that I hope you will love too...
