Leather trousers, one could argue, are akin to cupcakes: they look great and are, quite frankly, a necessity. Fashion conscious folk who mingle amongst style savages will undoubtedly empathize. The feeling of freshly leather-wrapped legs striding beneath an oversized knit, casually pulled together by a leather satchel is one to slowly savour.
Promising pronto biker chic à la Burberry and Balmain’s SS11 offerings, Preen Line seeks to awaken the haute rock ‘n’ roller within you via its leather scrap trousers: jersey back and leather front, on-season swagger is guaranteed whether paired with a slouchy knit or oversized blazer. But with the price tag at £715, edging these must-haves into editrix allowance, think investment, not indulgence.

Yes, hail high fashion in all its magnificent grandeur, endless credit card bills and Prada stripes; we still love resorting to the bargain hunters’ comfort blanket to placate our steep fashion dependence – the high street.  Topshop is the go-to god send for emulating high fashion with fractionally priced, fabulous alternatives.

Priced at a rewarding £250, these premium black leather skinny trousers make for the perfect transeasonal addition to your wardrobe; assured to make repeat appearances whether befriending a silk blouse on a fine spring day, or harmoniously styled in sync with a soft, slouch knit.

It’s comfort food for style leaders.
