Prepare to kiss 'weather dependent' wardrobe conundrums 'bye-bye', says Annmarie O'Connor.
Irish summers are predictably unpredictable.
One moment the sun is shining, the next we’re getting a preview of autumn.
That’s where leather proves its prowess: breathable, pliant and resilient; it moves effortlessly with the body.
What’s more, it always looks fresh; never crumpled or loveworn like fair-weather fabrics (I’m looking at you, linen).
Even its faux friends prove real contenders.
So, the next time you crosscheck your clothing choices against Accuweather, spare a thought for summer leather.
