Fashion: Leather trench coats are going to be an autumn wardrobe staple

Things we learned from Copenhagen Fashion Week: Leather trench coats are in.

Looking for your next autumn fashion fix? One that keeps you wrapped up and warm yet stylish? A leather or pleather trench coat may be the answer.

Spotted on a variety of guests during Copenhagen Fashion Week in a multitude of colours, the leather trench coat was a standout fashion look that’s about to take off.

And we hear you—real leather definitely isn’t as popular as it once was due to the nature of how it’s obtained. But pleather or vegan leather is also an option, and it’s actually less expensive too. So you can achieve this upcoming fashion trend without any guilt.

Outside of the fact that this versatile coat is absolutely stunning with a range of outfits, it has to be said that leather does a decent job of keeping us warm during cooler temperatures, therefore making it a practical buy as well as a fashionable one.

The leather/pleather trench coat is one of those pieces that transitions well from day to night, which only means one thing: more bang for your buck.

The autumn staple has gone from runway to social media as it has gathered upwards of 16.1 million searches on TikTok, with plenty of users sharing inspiration on how to style it and where to buy one sustainably.

We’re all about to enter our Matrix era.
