We've come to rely on Cheryl Cole to work the latest trends with such flair and ease. And last week was no different as the fashionista stepped out in a leather shift dress for dinner with her Girls Aloud band mates. All hail the new party dress of the season! The leather dress has fast become our go-to day dress this season. It's gorgeously flattering, oozes luxury and in an autumnal shade like Cheryl's is the perfect way to look on-trend and practical in this dreary weather. The mustard-leather piece, which Cheryl dressed up for her evening out with cream stilettos and glossy brunette waves, featured a elegant high round neck and a chic 60s-esque above the knee length making it the perfect shape for her petite frame. If you want to get Cheryl’s look we cannot recommend L.2.Mae's luscious leather dress collection at Littleblackdress.co.uk enough. Opt for sleeveless leather dresses like the nation's sweetheart with neat design and keep the accessories simple to complete the day-to-night style:

L.2.Mae Evan Leather Dress, £450, L.2.Mae Leather Morris Dress, £160, L.2.Mae Leather Ava Dress, £150.
