While perusing Elle (Deutsche) we came upon some leather pieces that looked perfectly chic, but fall out of the standard leather comfort zone —tight leather pants/leggings, short leather mini skirts and the classic leather jacket.
Leather can be perfectly elegant, even when it’s not clingy and body contouring. It translates just as easily into pleated trousers, a luxuriously draped cape or an a-line knee scraping midi skirt.
