The model off-duty staple you need to buy now
Add to cart
It's official: after being championed by a number of the industry's most discerning dressers, from Kaia Gerber to Kendall Jenner and the perennially stylish Hadid sisters, the leather trench is back, cementing its status — once and for all — as a true classic wardrobe staple. Falling somewhere between wholly contemporary and sartorially timeless, there's no better way to stay under wraps this winter than with this season's most polished coat interpretation.
Think somewhere between timely and timeless; a mix of Carrie Bradshaw meets The Matrix; and where painfully cool androgyny gets an unexpected sensual spin.
Where to start? Well, for those whose current love of everything late '90s is in full bloom, follow in cult style hero Trinity's footsteps and give yourself a double injection of Matrix style with a longline leather blazer and black pair of pants; don't forget some teeny tiny sunglasses if you want to nail the top-to-toe bad-girl ensemble.
If it's a more feminine look you're after, brand-of-the-moment Bottega Veneta is serving up delicious jewel tone iterations that are beautifully crafted, you'll wear them incessantly over and over again. Similarly, Miu Miu's boxy, double-breasted coat, cast in the sweetest shade of saccharine pink, is the kind of piece that boasts that exaggerated elegance appropriate for all occasions, from serious days at the office to playful after-hours.
Of course, it would be impossible to discuss leather trenches without mentioning the timeless classic black version; tailored, with precision-cut lapels and a belted waist, there's nothing more perennially chic or infinitely wearable — a true classic that no woman's closet should be without.
