After seeing all the sleek leather pieces on the Spring '13 runways, it was pretty easy to forget which season we were in. Brands like Fendi, Marni, and more sent chic, colorful leather looks down the catwalk, skillfully dispelling the myth that leather is only appropriate for cooler weather. The secret seems to be a simple switch of the color palette, as well as pairing your bright leather pieces with lightweight fabrics like cotton, crepe, and linen. If you needed more proof that this trend does indeed work (and work well), just take a cue from eternally stylish celebrities like Diane Kruger, Solange Knowles, and Ashlee Simpson, who effortlessly showed how powerful colored leather can be. Whether sexy and sophisticated like Diane's fire-engine red Vanessa Bruno pencil skirt, cool and laid-back like Solange's colorblocked Clover Canyon ensemble, or sweet and Spring-ready like Ashlee's pastel blue number, this is one trend we're looking forward to trying in just about every iteration this season.
