Typically reserved for fall and winter, leather is making a big splash this spring, thanks to a lighter, more feminine look and feel. 

Embrace the unexpected warm weather leather look by selecting pieces in cool colors enhanced with delicate embroidery, laser-cut details or perforated accents. 

We've already spotted a number of chic celebs like Jessica Alba, Diane Kruger and Shay Mitchell taking this trend for a spin with varied versions of the edgy fabrication.

We especially love this look because it combines soft, flirty elements with the most unexpected treatment, giving off a striking spring look that works for day or night. 

Best of all, there's a spring leather style for everyone at every budget!

Designers like Derek Lam, Balmain, Celine, Jason Wu and 3.1 Phillip Lim showed a number of fresh designs on their spring runways, but there are a number of wallet-friendly versions, as well.

Ready to rock this sweet-meets-chic trend?

We've sourced everything from a studded skater dress and pleated pleather skirt to a pair of lace-trimmed shorts and an office-appropriate top in a standout color.

Or, ease into the trend with a knockout accessory like a pretty pair of colorful leather ballet flats or a lace-inspired leather handbag.

How would you wear the spring leather trend?
