Fit is a huge factor when going the leather route. Bomber jackets can look bulky if you’re heavy around the waist, while leather pants are tricky to pull off (literally and figuratively) if you’re not a supermodel. Instead, opt for non-traditional pieces (a blazer, dress, or skirt) in a more comfortable and forgiving supple wash. Look for garments that are sleek but not stiff, tasteful, and form-fitting but not skintight. Kimora Lee Simmons bustier dress is sexy, but not too tight.
