If there's ever an inkling of a '90s trend revival, you know we're going to be all over it—particularly if it has a connection to Sex and the City. When it comes to leather jackets, rock 'n' roll bikers might have prevailed over the last decade; however, this season has seen the return of a quintessentially Carrie Bradshaw style. Characterised by an oversized boxy silhouette, button-up fastening and statement collar, the '90s leather jacket is officially having a moment, and we couldn't be more excited.
Fast-forward 20 years, and thanks to brands such as Nanushka and Saks Potts, the fashion crowd is going mad for all things leather (dresses, skirts, trousers—you name it), and this has undoubtedly helped to inspire a return to more classic leather jacket styles. So how should we wear the trend now? While the likes of Carrie Bradshaw and Rachel Green liked to style theirs with cami dresses, boob tubes and low-slung jeans (those were the days), for 2018, we've seen influencers opting for luxe, head-to-toe leather ensembles.
The trick to making this look work is to mix up leather (or vegan leather) pieces in different hues. For example, you can try mixing tonal shades of brown for a '70s-inspired finish. The longer leather jacket styles also make for a great pairing with wardrobe basics, as seen on Anna Cornelia, who wore a knee-grazing leather jacket with a white shirt and trousers. Simple yet effective.
