The luxe leather dress trend is consistently reinventing itself to stay current, with each season seeing a new and fresh take on the classic look.
Leather dresses are so much a staple of the sartorial arsenal now that they are pretty much everywhere, in every label’s latest collection and on every e-commerce site. So really its just about finding the right fit, cut and colour for you.
If you are a little more daring like Alexa Chung, try different textures paired together mixed with some pretty accessories. If you are Kim Kardashian, its daring enough to emerge from your house pregnant in a tan leather shift dress. There are flirty A-line dresses for the girly girl, or striped mod styles for those who want to reference a sixties aesthetic.
A common mistake with leather is that it is instantly associated with being “sexy'”. A leather dress doesn’t have to be tight (nor do leather pants!). A bold silhouette is sometimes more demure, and makes more of a statement with the right look.
The beauty of a leather dress is that no matter how simple, it always looks luxe and is easy to accessorize. It may be one of those “splurge” pieces, because lets face it, a good leather dress ‘aint cheap, but it will be one of those items in your closet that you will wear over and over.
