If you love leather, I’ve got some good news for you. This season, the luxe fabric will come in many colours including burgundy (Derek Lam), mustard (Mulberry), and dark green (Fendi) but black will definitely play the first fiddle. Think about a leather biker jacket, the perfect addition to any fall wardrobe or leather pants, a trend-favourite must. Not sold on the leather-leg trend? No problem. This season offers a feminine alternative to suit your flirty style: a leather dress.

At the start, Brooklyn Decker showed up in a figure-hugging strapless leather mini dress from Jay Ahr when she arrived for 2011 ESPY Awards. Brooklyn accessorized her cherry frock with pointed toe Christian Louboutin pumps with spikes. Edgy!
The next was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who made a stylish appearance at the “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” conference in a Marios Schwab LBD. The dress was remarkably backless and it featured a feminine lace detailing in the hemline. Rosie wore timeless black Christian Louboutins.
Then, at the London photocall for Horrible Bosses, Jennifer Aniston stepped out in a sexy black leather dress from Celine. The new Mrs Theroux completed her look with demure strappy black Gucci heels.
Soon after that, Blake Lively sizzled in a bright orange leather dress on the red carpet of the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. Blake’s Gucci Resort 2012 ensemble was paired with a matching thin belt and the animal print Christian Louboutin pumps.

Looking for a perfect leather dress?
Whether you go for a classic black leather dress or choose to add a burst of bold colour to a ladylike shift, don’t bother as both options are equally fashionable. The black dress will be easier to find though, so consider a tan, orange, or berry version a treat.
Take a cue from the most stylish celebrities and shed the “girl-next door” image for good. In order to do that, you will need a laid back yet elegant shift dress made of sleek, supple leather. It may have a different colour, texture, and construction but a leather dress always oozes with style-conscious elegance. Continuing Fall’s trend, this kind of dress is essential, no matter the season.
