Celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have made the leather shirt *the* piece of the season (and sales are up 800%)


The temperature has plummeted this week, but this weather not only brings in a flurry of sniffly noses and ice-cold toes but a whole new wardrobe of winter apparel.

It’s a given that every girl has, at some point, owned a denim shirt; it’s been a solid staple in our wardrobes for years. However, this Autumn/Winter there’s a new shirt elbowing denim off the rails.

As well as a denim shirt, we all probably own something leather (faux hopefully!), whether that’s boots, trousers or the classic leather jacket. This season, the infatuation with leather-looks has presented us with the leather shirt.

Shopping app LIKEtoKNOW.it has seen an increase of 800% on searches for leather shirts. In 2019, we’ve seen a rise in Western-inspired fashion, including; cowboy boots, milkmaid dresses and cowboy hats. The leather shirt adds a modern edge to the trend and it’s taking over our Instagram feeds. Influencers @wearetwinset, @taramays and the @smythsisters have been styling the shirt in their own unique way.

The leather shirt is a trans-seasonal item that can be worn from the cooler days of Autumn (looks like they’ve already passed), straight through to the Spring/Summer of 2020. Layer it on top of jeans, a plain white tee and heels or boots to jazz up the most simple #OOTD.

Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo and Dior have all recently displayed the leather shirt, making it a sophisticated alternative to regular knitwear, so leave your wooly jumpers and denim shirts hibernating at the back of your wardrobe this year.

Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Joan Smalls have all been spotted out and about this week sporting the leather shirt in various colours and styles. Kendall opted for a olive green leather shirt pairing it with black leather pants and a seasonal favourite, square-toe boots. Obviously, she nailed the look in true Victoria’s Secret (RIP) style.
