    Baseball caps are super trendy right now, and a leather baseball cap is a fun way to add a bit of leather to your look while looking sporty, rather than sexy.

    If you're super new to leather and are really afraid of the trend, try incorporating it very subtly with a simple leather cuff. It's a great way to add a bit of edge to your outfit without it screaming leather.

    Try a top with some faux-leather sleeves or other simple leather embellishments. This is a great way to add a bit of edginess to a casual outfit. Style it with some boyfriend jeans and you're good to go.

    A little hint of leather in a pair of leggings is subtle but adds a bit of visual interest and an element of texture to a simple pair of leggings. Cover part of it up by wearing them with a tunic, or let them show with a regular length top. 

    Find them at G by Guess for $24.50.

    If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, try a leather skirt. If you wear it with casual pieces like a graphic t-shirt, tennis shoes, or a sweatshirt, it adds a nice contrast and tones down the leather. 

    Find it at G by Guess for $29.95.
