Swap sleek black leather trousers for a pale-hued wide-leg pair to make light work of wearing this typically after-dark look during the day, says Style & Living’s Alexandra Murphy.
This season, leather is no longer reserved for sultry, after-hours looks or everyday outerwear. Suddenly the favoured fabric of covetable modern brands, leather has been used to construct everything from chic midi skirts at Jil Sander to dungarees at Helmut Lang. Work the trend with a touch of difference in these stylish wide-leg trousers from Autograph. In butter-soft leather and a neutral shade, the wide fit will keep you comfortable, while the cropped length lends a modern spin. Give them an elegant Riviera feel for all-day wear, with classic stripes and on-trend mules, before adding statement jewellery and a sharper heel to take them into the evening.
