The black leather dress

Fall Winter 2012 Ready to wear collections - Calvin Klein, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Céline (

Do you remember when I did a post on black leather ? Some people rightly noticed that I didn't mention anything about black leather dresses, but it's not because I don't like them. If I love the black leather trend then I have to say that I ADORE the black leather dress trend. I love dresses, I love leather and I love black, combining the three can only be a winner to me.

There are many options this season if you're looking for a black leather dress. The only problem is that they are all super expensive. There is also the option of faux leather, but while I can go along with the faux leather leggings, faux leather on a dress just seems a bit SM to me (not that I have anything against SM but it's not the style I want to promote in the blog). I'm still waiting for Zara to come up with a (more) affordable version but in the meantime I'll keep lusting over these.
The Row dress (farfetch), Luc Duchene dress (Luc Duchene outlet), By Malene Birger dress (farfetch)

Alexander Wang dress (my theresa), Vanessa Bruno Athe dress (place des tendances), Burberry dress (my theresa)

If you found any affordable alternatives pleaso do share.

How about you, will you rock the black leather dress ?

  1. Was looking for the perfect one for ages, but now it's almost Summer (in Australia) I think I'll have to just be jealous of all you girls in the Northern Hemisphere that get to rock a leather dress! I'd probably keep it simple with boots + hat :)

  2. I have the leather dress from h&m trend. I guess it is 2 years since I bought it. columbine smilla also has the dress, perhaps you seen it there.
    Well I prefer to wear the dress with a white crispy shirt in.


    1. Hi Chau ! You seem to have every cool item from H&M Trend :) I don't know the dress but I'm sure it's great ! xx

  3. I love leather dresses but my lifestyle doesn't really afford the opportunity to wear one :( Leather pants are my limit. If I lived or visited London or similar more often I would definitely add one to my wardrobe. I love the idea of a leather dress, fitted and elegant with some Valentino Rockstud heels. All that studded strapping would be the perfect partner in my eyes :)

    1. I don't think anything could look bad with some Valentino Rockstud heels... Those are some yummy shoes ! Such a pity that you cannot add a leather dress in your wardrobe :(

  4. Hi Stephanie ! I guess you need to wait one more season to finally find your bliss dress ;) xx
