Who says leather is grunge? Take style notes from fall 2018 street style snaps and the runway

Ladylike leather

This season, leather is soft, feminine and sometimes slick

Leather isn't just for the rock royalty. Seen at McQueen, Hermes, Saint Laurent, Ferragamo, the luxe fabric is everywhere on thefall/winter 2018 runway — from capes, coats, pencil skirts, dresses, trousers and even shirts. Make it less austere and matrix-like by wearing leather in camel, emerald or burgundy hues. But if you still prefer classic black, pair it with bright knits, romantic ruffles, or soft, fluid dresses.

Or, take it from the street style set and throw on reptile leather accessories. If you like shine, play around with glossy patent leather. Do sophisticated sex appeal by pairing skin-tight leather pants with a sheer or netted top to show off a hint of skin. For the office, try a leather-skirt-cotton-tee combo, or a blazer with a crop top and leather culottes with patent pumps. Still think leather is tough and grungy?
