From beanies to boots and cosy knits, every winter, there are key items we rely on to get us through the season. A few good coats are, of course, vital, and while I own a calf-length wool coat and a cropped puffer jacket, I've recently realised that a leather coat or trench is one of the classic items missing from my rotation.
As a true investment buy, a leather coat is a timeless staple that will see you through seasons to come. And as I begin to think about my winter wardrobe, I feel myself increasingly focusing on items I know I will keep for years. From sleek belted options to trench coat styles and vibrant block-colour designs, there are several classic leather-coat styles on the market right now. The fashion set has been putting together many enviable outfits featuring the item already this season, so there is definitely no shortage of leather-coat outfit inspiration (whether you're in the market for a real or faux version).
Monikh has paired a knee-grazing coat with jeans and a roll-neck, while Mary L. Jean has styled a mint green faux-leather jacket alongside a minidress and knee-high boots. Lauren of A Style Edit is wearing a leather trench coat with a cream knitted co-ord, and Aysha Sow has teamed a vintage-feel brown belted coat with straight-leg jeans and heeled boots.
No matter which way you style it, a leather coat is sure to be a versatile addition to your wardrobe this winter. Keep scrolling to see and shop leather-coat outfits.
