Trends: Little Leather Dress

The little black dress has been a must have wardrobe warden for ages.  This Fall, black leather dresses are the newest rendition on the ‘little black’ habitual pick. Designers are showing luxe leather dresses that are sexy, fun, and anything but ordinary.

Catherine Malandrino’s design is a little naughty and a little nice – combing leather and lace.  A round neck shift dress with patent leather accents has great depth and dimension.  Couple this dress with a knee boot for a laid back attitude, or with a pump and clutch to dazzle throughout the evening.

This Patterson J. Kincaid dress displays royal blue leather with contrasting black jersey side panels.  With an A-line silhouette and scoop neckline, this dress gives leather a very carefree demeanor. Adding a studded belt and platform pump will give this piece the perfect amount of pizazz.

For versatility, consider this relaxed fit sleeveless leather dress by Vince.  You can easily emulate the mixed fabric look by layering with a turtleneck as shown below.  Or, wear this dress bare armed for a simple straight forward force.

Camel colored leather warms up your skin tone without being overwhelming vibrant for the cooler months.  This sleek, stretch leather dress by The Row is stunning. Lambskin overlays a cotton spandex lining for ease of wear.  The pencil skirt and seamed waistline gives feminine fluidity to this traditionally tough fabric.

Out with the old and in with the new! We’ve done New Year’s Eve in sequins, this year go for leather. This Robert Rodriguez metallic leather dress is petitioning for a party. With a great fitting silhouette, V- neckline, and spectacular sheen this is the dress for your holiday party season. Add a delicate bracelet and elaborate earring to claim the belle of the ball.

Red leather never looked more feminine than in this Monique Lhuillier dress. Fueling a flirty fun style, this crew neck, pleated A-line design is an updated approach to leather apparel. Highlighted with a black leather snap belt that flatters the waist, this dress is striking.

Alexander McQueen rarely disappoints. This black leather “Glove” piece is no exception. Textured with a mix of matte and shiny leather this structured dress makes a big statement. The darted crew neckline and puffed sleeve are exquisite.  Here, adorned with a leather bow belt to add a dash of girlish grace.

This long-sleeve leather pencil dress by Robert Rodriguez contours to create a fanciful form. Sleek and sexy this garb features a boat neckline and scoop back. Rodriguez’s design is modern and minimalistic which gives a revived vamp.

Another great interpretation of the leather dress is this design by Milly. A swing dress with a mock neckline and box-pleated A-line skirt has an edgy enlightenment.  Whether at a concert or independent film premier you are sure to be on trend with this typecast.
