Bad-Gal-Leather Looks We're Lovin' From Handle With Care

It's often imitated (but never duplicated), we blush when Rihanna sings about it, and everyone should definitely be wearing some this fall. We're talking about leather — not the tough gal Pink Ladies variety, but classy (and no doubt sexy) pieces that can add a little edge to an otherwise plain ensemble.
One of our favorite Old Town boutiques (in the business for over 30 years!), Handle With Care, has a dedicated selection of feisty leather pieces in stock for fall. Owner Brinton Coxe regularly travels to New York to hand pluck the latest and greatest — and these great leather wares are no exception. She thrives on working with shoppers one-on-one to find the perfect look, so if you're wondering what to pair with your hot, new, leather pants, she's your gal.
