A perennial style staple and the ultimate cover-up, the leather jacket features in almost every wardrobe. If you haven’t got one in yours, you’re missing out on the most hard-working accessory you’ll ever own.

The beauty of a leather jacket lays not just in its ability to make you feel those Kate Moss vibes even on the most mundane of Mondays, but also in its versatility. As thoughts turn towards our autumn looks, the ultimate transitional piece comes into its own, transforming your summer favourites into autumn-appropriate outfits. Here are three ways to wear your leather jacket over the coming months, as the weather turns and the trends change.

·             Take your summer maxi dress from beach to bar by layering it beneath a black leather jacket. Patterned styles in coordinating shades work well, such as this Michael Kors style, the darker hues in the palm print taking the look through the rest of summer and into autumn/winter.

·             A white tee and blue jeans is the easiest throw on and go combo, but add a deep red lip and a black biker jacket and you’ve got a classic look that never dates. Add this season’s statement gold earring for extra AW17 style kudos.

·             Tough black leather and delicate broderie anglaise shouldn’t work together but it does, really rather well in fact. Your pretty white holiday dresses will slip straight into your weekend wardrobe at home with the addition of a leather jacket and ankle boots.
