The words ‘leather’ and ‘dress’ probably make you think of ageing rock stars and Victoria Beckham in the 90s but leather dresses are one of the hottest trends this Autumn/Winter and has all you need to know on how to wear it with style. Seen all over the A/W12 catwalks from Derek Lam and Alberta Ferretti to leather lovers Versace and Loewe there are an unlimited number of ways to wear it well. Whether you want simple, daring, embellished, laser cut, black or colourful leather is here to stay. The catwalks used unusual shapes and details but you don’t have to go that crazy. Take a tip from popstar Rita Ora who made her cream leather dress look effortlessly stylish. With simple jewellery and flattering long sleeves you could easily wear this to the office or to a party this winter. Or why not channel our favourite blogger Ashley Madekwe who shows that a simple leather shift can make a lot of impact. Keep hair loose, accessories simple and team with vibrant red lips. Still not convinced leather is the look for you? The best leather dresses are simple in shape and show off your best assets- what's not to love? If you have great arms, go sleeveless. Got great legs? Try a shorter style, but not too short as it's easy to cross in to trashy territory with this sexy fabric. Keep it fairly fitted but not body-con. Leather body-con is not a flattering look. Black on the other hand is eternally chic but if that's a little on the Catwoman side for you try it in cream, burgundy and mink for a softer take on the trend. These colours are the perfect way to transition your wardrobe in to next season too.
