How to wear leather at work

Unless you are a rock chick or a professional biker you probably don't usually wear leather to work. It's usually not considered an appropriate material for the workplace. However, there is a way you can rock your favorite leather pieces without getting sent home with a stern warning and as it's the festive season we are going to share it with you.

The secret to pulling off a statement look

Like animal print , polka dot leather is a statement look and it has more of a wow factor if you don't wear it from head to toe like a wannabe Cat Woman, and this style tip is the key to wearing it in the office without drama.

Winter is the perfect time to show off those lovely leather items. Leather jackets are all the rage at the moment and they look great with boho frocks or skinny pants. While your boss probably won't appreciate you wearing denim and leather to work, you can definitely wear them with a floarty dress or some smart fitted pants and pumps.

The rules are slightly different for leather accessories

The leather skirt is also a fashion classic and as with the leather jacket, it works better solo. Pair it with a round-neck block color top with long sleeves and a fitted cut. For ultimate impact, team it with some coordinating ankle boots.

Leather accessories are also a winter favorite and a little bit more acceptable than other leather items. A pair of black leather gloves and some long boots can really pull an outfit together. Team them with black wool tights, a jumper dress, a belted mac and a trilby for chic winter style that will help you turn heads and maintain your fashionista status.

So to sum up, select one statement leather item and keep the rest of your look neutral so it can take centrer stage. Finish off your stunning look with loose locks, smoky eyes and some nude lipstick.

You're all set, go get 'em!
