Leather-look leggings and an American Apparel body were the unofficial going-out uniform for freshers in the late 2000s, but three celebrities wore skinny leather trousers at fashion events last night, confirming that skinny leather jeans remain a wardrobe staple.
Every fashion buyer I have spoken to about the A/W 19 collections has highlighted leather as one of the dominant trends for the upcoming season, with everything from midi dresses to trench coats coming in burgundy, brown and black leathers. Perhaps one of the easiest ways to wear this trend, however, is a pair of simple leather skinny jeans, worn with a black blazer, T-shirt and black ankle boots. Cara Delevingne and Charlize Theron both wore this noughties uniform in New York yesterday.
Style Notes: Charlize Theron wore her skinny leather jeans with a white crew neck T-Shirt, black blazer and ankle boots. This has long been a fashion industry uniform.
Style Notes: Cara Delevingne paired her high-waisted skinny jeans with a black vest top, a Chanel tweed black jacket and ankle boots.
Style Notes: Katie Holmes went for head-to-toe leather, pairing her skinnies with a matching double-breasted leather blazer.
