Leather in the Summer? Priyanka Chopra Shows How It's Done

It takes a brave soul to rock warm-weather leather, and it seems Priyanka Chopra is up for the challenge. On a recent outing in NYC, the Baywatch actress sported a Ralph Lauren Collection Pre-Fall 2017 number in the unexpected summer fabric with aplomb.

The trick to pulling it off? A breezy, knee-length hemline certainly helps, as does a high bun, which keeps hair off the neck. Cool, round sunnies give the ensemble a bit more summer flair, along with her choice of handbag in a jewel-toned green hue. The finished result is undeniably polished—and it proves that leather has legs beyond the cold-weather months. That said, if you're compelled to try this look, it's best reserved for indoor events—in which copious amounts of AC are imminent.
