Trend With Benefits: Little Leather Details
A few reasons to add some leather to your life:
1. Squeezing into leather pants? Not that appealing, unless you're 22, a size 2, or Joan Jett. Leather-trim pants? Fantastically cool (and way more elegant) on everyone.
2. These looks have the chic of an all-leather item, but none will massacre your budget.
3. And thanks to leather-clad bad girls everywhere, the pieces on these pages deliver an instant hit of dangerous allure, but you'll still look like you.
