A high-shine finish traditionally reserved for accessories, patent leather and its faux counterpart have recently taken the runway and the street-style scene by storm in the form of dresses, jackets, pants and the like. When styled with casual separates like nubby knits and oversize tees, the result is decidedly cool, polished and anything but flashy. Whether you’re into glossy or crackled, choose from our picks here and we promise you’ll stand out in a sea of drab winter layers.
