A perfect example is Acne who gave us some amazing leather looks in their fall rtw collection
Their use of colour, instead of the obvious black, gives it a fresher, newer feel and mixing it with interesting textures makes it more feminine.
Another example is Phillip Lim who added leather detailing like leather sleeves to give the look an edge.
Here are some pieces on the high street with a similar style
PREMIUM TAUPE STITCH DETAIL LEATHER SHORTS - TOPSHOP
RENEWAL LEATHER POCKET DENIM SHIRT - URBAN OUTFITTERS
Wear with brogues or high heeled boots
WHITE WATCH Soft Leather Ankle Boots - ASOS
Just remember keep the look feminine, make sure the colours aren't too dark, and stay clear of studs (although if you're going for the biker look which is also fashionable at the mo then pile them on all you want)!
