Don’t let leather’s tough reputation fool you. It may be right at home as a rough-and-tumble biker jacket or a rugged, well-worn cowboy boot, but Black Label’s latest looks breathe a new, more elegant life into this moto-approved material. This spring, a leather piece (or two) offers an enviable edge. A peplum jacket with slim strips of appliquéd leather is perfectly polished when paired with a neutral top and a skinny stretch-leather pant. (Double leather? Why not?) And a classic little black dress becomes sexier when designed with alternating bands of sleek leather and lightweight mesh. On the luxe Calandra top, thin strips of jet-black leather are crocheted into an intricate neckline that gives the shirt a textured look. So let leather’s luxe side steal the show this spring; you might be surprised by how ladylike it looks.
