The best summer leather picksFashion & LifestyleShopping & Trends
As the weather heats up we are all on the prowl for hot additions to our summer wardrobe, but whilst you’re hunting down the perfect bikini or comfiest sandals, don’t forget to add some leather into your life; it could turn out to be the perfect summer staple.
The trick with summer leather is to pick a vibrant colour; while winter is the time where black takes centre stage with bottle green and burgundy potentially getting a look-in, these warmer months open the door to an array of summery shades.
