Cèline, Hermès, Calvin Klein
Given this whole leather thing going on this season, I´m looking for stylish ways to wear leather trend. Although I´m first and foremost a fan of leather pants, I´m starting to warm up towards leather dresses especially after I saw many of them at the fall/winter 2012 runway shows. We saw different interpretations such as Cèline´s boxy leather jacket dress, Hermès´top coat-like leather dress with leather gloves and boots, and Calvin Klein´s gorgeous sleeveless leather skirt dress. Depending on your figure and your taste, you can try on the perfect glossy leather look for you. Here are some leather I´m digging right now.
Combo Bustier Leather Dress
I am drawn by the combo bustier style of this dress plus its cute cap sleeves from Rebecca Taylor. If you look at it closely, it has a subtle optical illusion effect with contrast texture from the sleeves to the sides. I hardly could afford this dress with its first listed price, $495, but now that it´s on 40% off, with its current price $296.98, I have a chance. Looks great with black sexy pumps and black leather clutch.
Leather Sweater Dress
It´s not always that I see a perfect leather dress such as this sportswear-inspired leather from BCBGMAXAZRIA. Its color is cinder, a bit darker than stone which is very much a neutral. If worn with smoke rose or nude colored trench coat, it´s like topping the season´s other trend, au natural! Just like the model, I too feel that a cap-toe heel is perfect to complete the dress.
Westminster Faux Leather Dress
This dress reminds me of that cool plaid coat with leather contrast sleeves from pre-fall trends. This women’s westminster by Amanda Uprichard is made of silk and a faux leather material. It´s two-toned with the long sleeves featuring a contrast color or texture. It´s available in ivory combo and in black. Finish it up with black ankle boots. If you want to add some baroque and brocade details to the look, this mud pie black paisley will the job. It´s both convenient and trendy.
What do you think of leather dresses? Is it something you´re wearing this season?
