Leather is usually reserved for shoes, jackets, and bags. Lately, however, leather shirts have been popping up on runways and in stores. It’s a high fashion approach at re-inventing the classic t-shirt. While the look is quite expensive and will set you back a couple of hundred dollars at least, it is a trend to take inspiration from. Take a look at a few luxe leather shirts below.
1 3.1 Phillip Lim Collared Leather Halterneck Top
This collared halterneck top is an innovative way to incorporate leather into your wardrobe. Its features include vents at the sides, longer front hem, and subtle seam detailing. It is fully lined and also features a low v-back with single hook fastening. Take a directional approach and pair these with dark denim jeans and statement heels.
2 IRO Ron Zipped Suede Top
Suede shirts also come under the banner of luxe leather shirts. This number by label IRO comes in a cool teal shade and features an asymmetric zip front. It has low wide-cap sleeves, a round neck, and a single zip-fastening pocket at the front. This would work well layered over a cream dress and paired with some patent ballet flats.
3 3.1 Phillip Lim Laser Cut Top
The intricate laser cut details really add that extra ‘wow’ factor to this leather shirt. This shirt features a crew neck, short sleeves, and contrasting lining. While the front of the shirt is black, the back is white. Work the luxe casual look and wear this leather shirt with jeans.
4 Rika Marilyn Tee
Luxe leather shirts can be quite understated. Take this Rika shirt for example. It looks like a plain boxy t-shirt, but closer inspection reveals a soft suede body. This shirt features a scoop neck, short sleeves, and side vents at the hem. I think these would look great worn with tailored cotton shorts and peach accents.
5 Rodarte X Opening Ceremony Leather Tee
This lambskin leather t-shirt has a worn, crinkled appearance. It has a much more tactile appearance than other structured leather shirts. Opening Ceremony designer collaborations are quite covetable, and the latest one with Rodarte is sure to be popular amongst the fashion set. I think this crinkled leather tee would look quite stylish paired with a caramel pleated maxi skirt.
6 The Row Henry Vest
This leather vest has a lovely sculpted silhouette. It is cinched at the waist to accentuate the figure. This vest is made from soft lambskin leather and features a crew neck, seamed panels, and hidden magnetic closure. Wear this vest done up and with some on-trend white tailored trousers.
7 Day Birger Et Mikkelson Mellow Navy Day Suede Top
This washed navy suede top is a great piece to ease your way into the leather shirt trend. This shirt features a shaped top, short sleeves, and a zip back fastening. Pair this shirt with a colour palette of soft pinks and neutrals. It’s an easy and effective way to update your look.
