    Leather and faux leather looks became very popular at the end of 2019, and we’re set to see an even bigger surge of leather on the high street this coming spring. Leather, PU and vinyl clothing of varying colours will be plentiful. Leather trench coats and macs are set to be particularly popular and make a fun retro change from a usual beige trench.
