Do you love leather and have been wondering how to wear leather dress in winter? These tips should help strut your leather like a style pro without donning a matrix replica.
Given this whole leather thing going on this season, I´m looking for stylish ways to wear leather trend. Although first and foremost I`m a huge fan of leather pants, I´m starting to warm up to leather dresses after I saw many of them on some fall/winter 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.

1. How to Wear Leather Dress in Winter: 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.
2. Leather Sweater Dress with a Trench Coat
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.

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.

Of course, a pair of tall suede boots is in order.
When it comes to your coat, I would encourage you to have the liberty to choose other colors and not only black. It can be a brown wool top coat, or even a beige.
5. Leather Blazer Front Wrap Dress with Beige Tall Boots
This wrap leather dress in grayish green is super cool. It´s edgy but at the same time elegant. Although you´re going to style it for winter, I highly recommend styling it with light, neutral colors such as beige, cream or light brown for a cohesive tonal result.
Here I`m pairing it with a pair of cream thermal tights and nude suede knee-high boots. You´ll notice how pairing together different materials such as leather and suede can bring a soothing effect. Your leather dress is toned down and is not too edgy anymore.
6. Oxblood Leather Dress Mixed with Black Tall Boots ad Beige Coat
Another super stylish leather dress is this Oxblood mini. It has a knot in the middle that creates a deep V-neck. Although sexy, wearing it in winter might make you feel cold. So I highly recommend layering it with a skintone thermal undershirt. For the outerwear I added a sand wool trench coat. But for the boots, a pair of edgy, black stiletto heeled tall boots will complement your dress.
7. Cinched Waist Leather Dress with Chunky Boots
This cinched waist dress might be difficult to layer under a winter coat but hey, it´s totally fashionable! If you can find an oversized winter jacket or coat to layer over it, then I totally recommend it for winter. Keep the look all-black and accessorize only with simple accessories.
