This spring, leather is straying from its cliche black and brown roots and branching out in pops of teal, tangerine, emerald, metallic and just about anything else you can think of.

Slim-fitting leather pants have sprung on the fashion scene as a chic contrast to what previously might have conjured up mental images of biker gangs, and the always popular material has stayed strong in home design where its rugged masculinity can easily be harmonized with a splash of soft feminity in any space.
