When it comes to wardrobe staples it doesn't get much cooler than a leather jacket. Shop the best new season buys, here...

A classic piece of clothing that just never goes out of style, we are well and truly smitten with these life-long wardrobe heroes.

As seen on the catwalks in clean and cropped styles, as well as stand-out embellished versions, it seems that there are plenty of ways to wear this iconic style this season.

Whether it’s a biker, bomber or oversized in shape, a leather jacket is always on trend. Admittedly, this will probably mean spending a little bit more if you want to wear real leather, but for the quality and longevity, it can be totally worth it.

Double up and wear head-to-toe leather with a pencil skirt or cropped leather trousers for a fashion-forward look. Or, leather and denim is always a winning combo.

This season, there’s a huge selection of bold red and earthy tones out there, meaning that you can wear your leather jacket well into the summer too. Look to Mango and Mira Mikati for a colourful take on classic leather jackets. Not just for the weekend, this versatile wardrobe staple is also a great addition to your workwear wardrobe, too.

As always, Topshop offers a reliable favourite for all of your cool cover-up needs, while longline versions from French Connection and Alexander McQueen are an edgier alternative to the classic perfecto. Look to Monki if you want to make a bold statement in on-trend patent leather, and AllSaints for a cool classic that will last for a lifetime.
