The Best in Beauty and Style This Week: The Leather Edit

Strong and rigid or soft and shiny, this material is where edgy meets glamour. That’s right, I’m talking about the one and only: leather. Whether patent or matte, the material of leather exudes a distinctive type of real, raw, and powerful sophistication. Although leather is known for its true sleek black color, 2020 revamped many other shades and textures for it. Paired with smoldering beauty touches like a black manicure, smokey eye, or notes of a leathery perfume, you’ll be ready to rock’n’roll the leather fashion finds in this guide.
