Hell for leather: The ultimate staple jacket gets a makeover

by hellofashion.com /

Versatile, enduringly stylish and boasting bags of attitude, the leather jacket is an unbeatable sartorial staple.

But the perennial wardrobe favourite — guaranteed to be top of every fashionista’s wish list this autumn – is undergoing an exciting innovation.

Unusual cuts, stud details and quilting have served to help reinvent the leather phenomenon.




And it is colour that has got the style savvy celebs going hell for leather, sporting their statement-hued leather finds with confidence.

Anna dello Russo and Rihanna have been spotted in muted shades of green while Jessica Biel opts for showstopping in fiery red.

And all eyes were on Kristen Stewart as she stepped out at London Fashion Week wearing a lemon quilted version.


Others such as Alexa Chung, Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss keep it classic and stick to black.

Now’s the time to experiment with your leather jacket looks – try biker, studded, cropped, fringed or textured and pair with chiffon, floral detail or lace for a feminine finish on an edgy look.
