Iron, Gold, Or Diamond could be given a trim by crafting a piece of armor with a single piece of leather, creating a "Trimmed" variation of that armor (Trimmed Iron Chestplate, Trimmed Gold Helmet, Et Cetera). They would be identical to their regular counterparts in every way, with the following difference:
Trimmed Armor could be dyed the same way Leather Armor could be, with 12,326,391 colour combinations, and of course only the edges of the armor gaps would be colored, leaving the overall armor type still clearly visible.
This gives a bit of customization to the later armor, while limiting it to only bits and pieces of the actual armor being coloured, because while Leather Armor can be fully coloured (more or less), it offers minimal protection, and if you want that customization you have to sacrifice some protection (which isn't always viable), So this would give the player at least some customization to later armors without sacrificing protection for it.
