Is Leather Ever Appropriate For The Office?

Leather, both real and faux, seems to be everywhere this fall and that got us wondering; is leather ever appropriate for the office?
We at Boardroom Belles have always felt that leather is best suited for the weekend.  That all changed while attending a financial services industry event.   The room was filled with suit wearing women who all looked very professional and polished, but all looked very similar except for one woman.  What did she have on that made her stand out?  An expertly tailored navy blazer, a beautiful cream silk shell, and a navy leather pencil skirt.  She looked great.  While this look may not be appropriate for every office, we believe that if you keep the look conservative, leather can work for the office.  See below for how we would replicate the look for our office.
