I for one am thrilled that leather is back and better than ever. I have always been a major fan of lady like skin, so of course the leather dress is the #1 fall trend I am coveting. My leather dress obsession goes all the way back to college...I wore a to die white leather dress to my last sorority formal...once a fashionista, always a fashionista!!!! That said, I want to share some of my fall must-haves. There are so many to choose from, but I have to say that Intermix has done an amazing job editing for us. They bought the best of the best and so I am just going to focus on their stellar assortment.
First on my want list is this beyond edgy, yet super feminine strapless number from one of my new fav dress brands A.L.C. Ruched and perforated, this is leather high-fashion at its best. This gorgeous, rocker frock will take you from day to night...yes, leather is oh-so daytime right this season and should become a staple in your work wardrobe. Add a great blazer or one of the coming season's perfect sweaters, some ladylike pumps and you will be good to go. I would even take this dress one step further and transform it into weekend chic by layering over a long sleeve tee, tights and booties...so brunch worthy!!
My next choice would be this smoking hot red sheath dress from Rag & Bone. To me red is always the new black...in fact a red dress is the #1 item I recommend to my clients. Every woman needs a versatile red dress in her wardrobe, so if you already own the right crimson go-to, I say its time to update with some leather. Yes ladies...this is work appropriate!!! Add black tights and some modern yet classic heels to tone down the sexiness. Of course, work it when you go out at night...this sizzling number will take you day to evening in a blink. If red leather is just too "advanced fashion" for you, then luckily it comes in black as well.
OK last but not least is this super sensual, stretch leather, winter white dress from one of my newest loves Elise Overland. Elise Overland knows how to deliver edgy rock-n-roll and this dress is not for the fashion faint of heart. Body skimming...pure sex appeal...save this for those big party nights. I adore white dresses with a shorter black blazer, black tights and ankle boots...accessorize with some rocking Dannijo jewels...yes this is a look you have seen me in and it will continue to be one of my go-tos.
Experiment with leather this season...don't play it safe!!! Designers are serving up some of the most creative pieces I have seen in years, so make sure to invest in one of these amazing dresses and make sure to save it for years to come...I wish I still had that white leather dress circa late 80's...it would have been so perfect now.
