There's nothing wrong with a black biker jacket, but right now, it's time to shake things up with leather looks that are fresh, fun and fashion forward.

This year's trendiest skirt, the midi, gets a leathery makeover, as do vintage-inspired feminine frocks, proving that this animalistic fabric doesn't always have to look fierce.

Oh, and it doesn't actually have to be leather. Pick textile cheat PU (polyurethane) and no one will be any the wiser ...
