As much as I want to hold on to the hope that there is a decent summer coming, it's time for us to face that we live in England; our measly couple of weeks in April and then the beginning of August is all we are going to get. We might not look forward to the long nights and the unbearable cold but with a new season comes new trends, and with new trends new staple items to update your wardrobe.
Over the next couple of weeks I will be bringing you all the major trends for AW12, where you can buy them and what to pair them with in my must haves feature.
The first of the AW12 trends is leather. This is a staple every almost every year but each season sees a slightly different twist on how to wear it. Last season leather lent itself to fashion provocatively, this season sees leather go luxe and features in every form possible; tops, trousers, shorts, contrast sleeves - you name it, you'll be able to buy it in leather.
