Leather is saved for nighttime more often than not, but you can add touches of the texture to your professional ensemble and still be appropriate, yet on trend. A leather top, such as this week's "Perfect Piece", is a great staple to have for your work look because it effortlessly looks chic when paired under a blazer. It's best to mix, rather than match to create an interesting and unique combination, so I paired the faint plaid pattern on this blazer with a herringbone patterned pencil skirt. The key is to have colors, such as black and burgundy, tying in with one another. A statement necklace, glasses, and structured handbag are classic accessories that up the professional manner of the outfit. Simple black pointed toe heels ground the look, so it is pulled together and not overwhelming. Wear leather at work during the day and then visit back on Friday to see how you can wear it for a fancy nighttime look!
