Fashion Update: Rough it up sleekly

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather, because it is safer to harass rich heiresses than biker gangs. That said, let's cut the cliche, because leather has been making a classic statement in the fashion world for decades now.

For years it has always been about the perfect black leather jacket, to add an edge to an otherwise casual or feminine outfit, but what about incorporating leather in other manners?
Adding a touch of the old tanned skin, can really elevate your outfit. It is a fine line between casual chic and Texas tomboy, but the examples below show perfectly how it can and should be done.

Forget black, your leather jacket can be any colour from tan, dark brown, ox blood or baby pink

Add accents of leather for an understated, but interesting design detail. 

Leather pants can look great if the fit is right and it's paired with contrasting textures.

You can never go wrong with a simple tan or black shopping style handbag.

Ox blood, staying for another season - the colour that is.

Leather incorporated on the runways, in delicate shades and shapes.

The classic.

However you choose to incorporate it, wear with confidence and cool. Beware of perspiration versus the non breathable material and if you are vegan or do not support the wear of animal skins, there are great pleather and vinyl options available out there.
