Leather is big right now. And whether you’re looking for the perfect skirt, dress or jacket to suit your figure, we’ve found the best pieces to flatter your figure.

One of fashion’s favourite pieces for spring/summer 2016 is this stunning green wrap skirt from M&S, £129. Talked about by fashion insiders as the ‘hero’ piece of the season, this stunning skirt could have stepped straight off the catwalk. Don’t be afraid of leather – the fabric can actually be very flattering, and this skirt in particular is the ultimate waist-trimmer, thanks to the buckle detailing which will draw eyes towards your slimmest mid-section. The wrap-over style hides a tummy bulge too, giving you ultimate confidence. Simply style with heels and a shirt for a smart look with a stylish edge.

If a skirt isn’t quite right for you, there are plenty of ways to wear leather for S/S16. It’s a classic fabric for a reason and, when worn the right way to suit your shape, can take pounds off. Simple tricks like cinching in at the waist create a beautiful, balanced silhouette for troublesome tums, larger hips and top-heavy women. And the best part? A classic leather staple piece will never go out of style.
