According to fashion’s best-dressed power players, the leather blazer is making a serious comeback.
Some of fashion’s best-dressed have already found the perfect item designed to tackle the drizzle sans umbrella this autumn: the leather blazer.
There’s nothing to say you can’t style them now in the same way how they were worn back in the 90s. A T-shirt and midi skirt or a roll neck and jeans (as worn by Cindy, below) is still a go-to combo for autumn/winter 2020.
Carrying the torch the past few years is the millennial supermodel set – we’re talking the likes of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber – who have all gifted us a lesson in styling out the cult item for autumn/winter 2020.
The Instagram pack have also whole-heartedly thrown themselves into the trend too with knee-high white boots, chunky gold hoops and slicked-back hair completing the social media-ready aesthetic.
But it was only a matter of time until the blazer made a well-deserved comeback, and we couldn’t be happier. The fail-safe option is to opt for black, this way you can simply switch out your usual black cotton style for the leather iteration.
When the temperatures plummet towards the end of the year, be brave and try a double leather hit by mixing your blazer with leather trousers. It’s the autumn/winter version of double denim for spring/summer.

A double breasted blazer is a great way to sharpen up your look. Wear this casually with some skinny black jeans and a ribbed roll neck jumper or pair with a pussy-bow blouse for a smarter finish.
