Style Hunter How-To: Leather Minimalism

When we think of wearing four items of leather with a turtleneck, we image we’d come over all claustrophobic and stressed. So we looked to our Style Hunter ladies for inspiration this week, and the ever-chic and uber-cool  “The Northern Light” blogger Hedvig Osphaug showed us how it’s done!

Why It Works

1. Hedvig has kept the colour palette simple: The mixture of textures is contrast enough, so neutral colours work best.

2. There's no statement jewellery: Trinkety bracelets and rings look great peeping out of the sleeves of this Zara coat, and anything more would be overkill.

3. She's mixed it up: The soft matt leather of Miss Osphaug’s Topshop shorts, contrast with the polished monk brogues by Alexander Wang, and her Mulberry patent bag.
