Let’s be honest here, few fabrics are as sturdy, cool and thrilling to the touch as leather and even though it might be a little more expensive than other fabrics, it also happens to be one of the most durable.Remember, as long as you choose your investments wisely, splurging on quality leather goods can actually prove to be better value since you won’t have to replace the items often. In fact, we have friends who’ve lasted as long as 10 years with the same leather wallet! So fear not ladies, when it comes to leather you don’t always have to be afraid to make the investment.
We lined up five must-have leather pieces that every woman should own in their lifetime to help you start.
If you’ve owned a pair of leather boots in your lifetime then you’ll understand why exactly this piece is a closet must-have. Not only are they a great way to keep you warm and dry but, unlike suede, leather boots are a lot easier to keep clean! You can either go for thigh-high, knee-high or ankle booties depending on your needs and what flatters you most.
With all the different varieties available in the market, it’s important to have at least one leather bag in your collection. The fact that leather is quite durable ensures that your bag is likely to last through a lot more wear and tear than any other faux leather fabrics the market has to offer.
If you’re ever in need of a quick rocker chic fix, look no further than a leather jacket. You can throw it over a dress or pair it with jeans and it automatically gives you an edgy feel. They come in different shapes, sizes and colours but we suggest starting out with a black or brown jacket before venturing out and investing in a colour that might put you off a few months later.
For a sleek perspective to the leather fabric, consider getting a pair (or two, we won’t blame you!) of patent leather stilettos. Not only does it come in whichever colour that tickles your fancy, it also guarantees that you tick off a wardrobe staple from your checklist. Stilettos have long been in women’s closets and will be here years to come and this glossy finish provides you with a classy feel.
Considering this will probably be used the most out of all the above other pieces, you might as well invest in a leather piece that will hold the fort for a long time. The average woman will go two to five years with the same wallet so we totally understand splurging on this piece!
