When purchasing a pair of leather leggings you’re not just buying an eternally fashionable item, you’re buying into a piece of iconic fashion history. From Joan Collins, Marianne Faithful to Cindy Crawford, leather leggings have transcended every fashion trend and cemented their place within the fashion stakes. Happy nostalgic reading. 1943 Evelyn Keyes made headlines as the first woman to wear leather leggings on the silver screen for her part in the western film, Desperado. 1967 Marianne Faithful (Queen of Cool) rocked leather leggings with simple black pumps. 1970 Joan Collins dons double leather. Who else? 1991 The original supermodels - Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford - in leather leggings for a fashion campaign. Now Leather leggings are a must-have investment. You’ll be relying on them for years to come and that’s why our Liv leather leggings come in five amazing colours.

It’s our ‘go-to’ transitional outfit- a fine merino knit paired with a leather biker jacket. Getting cooler? No worries, we’ll layer it up and maybe throw it on under a cashmere coat. There’s no outfit where leather can’t be added. Why do we love it? It ages so beautifully and moulds to your body. It’s an emotional piece, not just a fashion statement. We love leather in all its shades, but sometimes we’re at a loss in how to exactly care for such a valued possession. Our designers gave us some tips! Condition your leat

Finding clothes that feel comfortable, look stylish and ‘speak to the real you’ is undoubtedly the holy sartorial grail – there are trends that trip us up and ruts we fall into. We asked happiness consultant Samantha Clarke – who runs a School of Life course helping women connect their ‘personal brands’ with their clothes – to lend some top tips on how to evolve your new season wardrobe to feel fresh, chic and unmistakably ‘you’. I created my School of Life class around a concept called ‘style sleeve’ values (values you wear on your sleeve). This is about choosing clothes based on seven key values (strength, proficiency, connection, heritage, spirited, newness and truth).

I wrote this as a way to give women a more considered and psychological approach to dressing in a way that’s right for them. Here are my three top tips… Tip 1. Trial new looks by mixing ‘safe’ and ‘scary’ items Try pairing items that force you into new territories with other things that feel ‘safe’, ‘quirky’ and ‘fun’. I always find thi
Leather might be a ‘big ticket’ purchase for most of us, but a classic well-fitting pair of leather trousers will serve you faithfully (and fashionably) for years. Durable, versatile and extremely easy to style, they elevate an off-duty look in the way that denim never can. We asked writer and mum of three Marina Fogle to road test our brand new Rowland Leather Trousers for a day out in London. Here’s her verdict… The one good thing about summer receding is the beckoning of my autumn wardrobe. I’ve loved
