J Brand Leather pants, Topshop cross over black top, Witchery knit, Oroton umbrella, Windsor Smith boots, Michael Kors rose gold watch.

This week I'm going to focus on leather and the key pieces that you need in your wardrobe. Trust me, these are worth the investment and because of their durable material they will or should last you 5-10 years! Just think about that cost per wear... amazing.

Oh and before I go any further, I'm talking about black leather. Any other colour does not fit under the umbrella of essentials, as much as you can try and justify it to yourself!

First up is the leather pants or leggings, I wear mine pretty much every second day! Also, I know you might be thinking that you can only wear these guys in winter, not true! In Sydney I can wear mine for a good 9 months out of the year, only in the really hot months do a recommend going for some other options.

I've found a few choices under a couple of different price brackets for your browsing.

under $500: Asos under $1000: Alice and Olivia under $1200: Helmut Lang
