Ways To Wear: The Leather Look

Leather is not traditionally conceived as the most trans-seasonal or temperature-versatile fabric, but with our top-selling leather staples from MonDéfilé you can dress the trend for every weather. Choose from our exclusive range of jackets, tops, and dresses by emerging and young fashion designers to get your edgy daytime, festival, and eveningwear looks pinned down in time for Summer.


The leather jacket is a timeless wardrobe staple and it pays to invest in a good quality one. This classic collarless style by Bibana is embellished with quilted and ribbed panels to give it just enough panache to make it utterly unique. While leather jackets are more traditionally associated with colder weather, it is impossible to ignore their presence as the ultimate Summer Festival companion. In rain or shine, a leather jacket will give you that laid-back rock chick look that works perfectly with denim cut offs and trainers or ankle boots.


For a slightly more Summer-inspired take on the trend, why not shed your sleeves and invest in this Leather and Crepe Graphic Tank Top by Emy Rigeot which comes in panels of modern black and military green. The Safari look is always a popular trend for S/S seasons and this season is no exception – khaki green adds a casual daytime feel to the leather look. Cover up by night in this sleek contemporary Half Long Sleeve Leather Top by VV, which comes in a bodycon cut with zip fastening to the back and fitted panels, making it perfect for a sophisticated evening look.


For a softer take on the trend, wear only hints of leather such as panel detail, hems, and edges. Perfect examples of this can be found in 7Robes’ unique design, the Silk and Leather Midi Dress which comes in khaki, blue, and black. In a soft silk but with edgy contrast leather panels, this dress can be worn by day or by night for maximum versatility. For a more dramatic eveningwear option, choose this Milkaya Laijah Crepe and Quilted Leather Mini Dress in a fitted style with a thick leather panel to the hem and zip fastening to the back. In such a simple cut and such high-quality fabrics, this dress speaks for itself as the ultimate LBD of the season.
