Move over LBD — there’s a new sheriff in town. The LLD.
What’s an LLD, you ask? Oh, it’s the little leather dress. Perfect for a lot of your fall and winter occasions really because, unlike it’s LBD counterpart, it doubles as many things, making it an amazing cost-per-wear investment piece. Wear it solo with boots and you’ve got a great cocktail party outfit. Wear it layered with a turtleneck and it’s perfect for the office. Wear it with jeans, open, with a cami and it blows your regular leather jacket out of the water. Wear it, well, with anything — and you get the picture. It’s makes for a chic cornerstone of your wardrobe arsenal — and given how leather breaks in nicely over time, it’ll look just as beautiful in the years to come.
Thankfully, leather separates are making a big splash this season — leather cropped trousers, leather dresses, leather trench coats, leather tops — you name it, in both the real and faux variety. The more, the merrier! This particular dress is by Maison Ullens — a new favorite contemporary ready to wear line out of Belgium, who coincidentally just launched their e-commerce — but I’ve also rounded up a few of my other favorite leather pieces below, at different price points, with outfit suggestions for each.
Are you guys styling more leather this season? Would love to know how you’re rocking the look!
