Leather clothes and modest dressing appear to be mutually exclusive concepts. Think of leather apparel and you’ll unconsciously generate images of bondage-style shiny pieces that cling to the frame and are only appropriate for the night, but there is a major trend on the Fall/Winter 2018 runways that guns to break that stereotype.
The new wave of leather pieces have applied the sultry material to silhouettes that lean towards modest fashion. Instead of thigh-high hems and low cut necklines, the runways were stormed by models clad in pieces where leather was crafted into looser forms, far more angular cuts, and on occasion, pleated for fluidity.
Though leather may not be the most forgiving of materials for our tropical weather, take style cues from these outfits on the runway to work it into your travel winter wardrobe.
