Back to Black

There's no denying it - leather is the look of the season

Gothic glamour is the only way to do black this season – think rebellious, rich and that most overused word lately, dominatrix.  Black leather was all over the AW’12/’13 runways with Valentino, Diane von Furstenberg and, of course, Givenchy heading the bunch. This trend goes so far beyond your little old biker jacket, but that’s a good place to start. Go for dresses, knee-length coats, and even full-length gowns – go all out!

siopaella has so got you covered for this trend. We’ve all sorts of leather goodies to keep you on the fashion ball this season. So let's start with a classic; the biker jacket. The perfect accompaniment to, well, everything, it's a real wardrobe staple. We've this gorgeous one in stock at the minute - it's vintage, it's heavy and it's super cool!

If you're after the Diane von Furstenberg look then you'll need these vintage leather trousers. Forget all preconceptions you have and check these out; straight legged and seriously soft, they're great for winter, and no, they're not as difficult to pull off as you might think!

If you're not the biggest fan of real leather, don't fret. We've some great leather-esque pieces but my favourite is this Tommy Hilfiger skirt because it's actually silk! But how much does it look like really expensive leather? Plus, this is one you can take to work, to the pub and to meet the parents if you need to.

Last but not least, accessories. This leather-look Pinko bag is feminine but tough and how gorgeous are these Marc Jacobs boots? Imagine wearing them on those cold, winter evenings with your favourite coat *sigh*

What did I tell you? We've got everything you could need to stay on-trend this season!
