Move over denim! Leather has been on the radar for many a season — making repeat appearances on celeb bods and runways alike — but we think this hard-wearing staple has finally hit its straps; replacing denim as the fashion set's most durable yet desirable fabrication. E-tail stores in-the-know have entire tabs dedicated to their leather offerings, and you'll find everything from tees to dresses to drop-crotch pants have been sexified in this skin. Hence, this week on POPSUGAR Fashion we'll be spotlighting anything and everything leather.
To ensure that your leather foundations are firm we're going to start at the cornerstone of any leather capsule: the iconic biker jacket. One part Steve McQueen to two parts Kate Moss — this tough-girl staple will add 'tude to any outfit. Balmain and Rick Owens are famous for their respective takes on this wardrobe essential, but there are some less exxy versions on offer, too. On your bike!
