Keep Warm in Style With This Season's Curveball Dress Trend

There aren't many fabrics that have such loaded associations as leather. If tweed is synonymous with bookish librarians and English aristocracy, leather sits at the opposite end of the spectrum with an altogether more rebellious crowd.

From Marlon Brando and James Dean to Blondie and Joan Jett, it has always been the unofficial uniform of the cool kids. Leather has gone through a variety of guises since the anarchic '60s and '70s (a biker jacket is now a mainstay in most wardrobes); however, this season has revealed a new side to the enfant terrible of the fabric world.
