Leather dresses are a big part of 2024 leather trend. From biker jackets to skirts to head to toe leather. It’s a warm and practical trend to jump on. The best leather dresses are more wearable than you probably think and can be as chic or sexy as you want them to be. Depending on the dress you wear and how you style them. I’ve been eyeing quite a few faux leather and vega leather mini dresses from Amanda Uprichard, Heartloom and Lemarque. Although if you’re looking for the best luxury, designer leather dresses ALAÏA and Versace are hard to beat for sleek and stylish looks. Pink or red leather dresses are also another way to wear this style for a change from black and are trending colors for 2024.

Are leather dresses in style for 2024?

Leather dresses are most definitely in style for 2024. They were a huge runway trend. As seen at Hermès, Givenchy, Chanel, Alaïa, and Courrèges Spring Summer 2024 runways shows to name a few. So yes, you can wear leather dresses in the Summer not just during the colder months.

I also highly expect it to stick around for the Fall Winter Spring Summer 2024 shows too. For a look that works IRL, go for elegant leather dresses like the ones seen at Alexander McQueen, Khaite, Chanel and Bottega Veneta. They don’t have to be luxury leather dresses to nail this trend but it’s worth spending a little bit more so that they don’t look or feel like plastic.

The styles on my wishlist right now

These are some of the styles on my wishlist with colors that work for all seasons. I ended up ordering the Lamarque black strapless dress but Amanda Uprichard and Karen Millen black leather dresses were also at the top of my list and have a lot of options that are on sale. You know how much I love a good sale find.

I find Karen Millen great for classic styles and Amanda Uprichard for feminine on trend styles. I know both brands fit me like a glove too and their quality is always consistent.

5 Ways To Style A Leather Dress

Styling a leather dress year round is easier than you might think. Ok, maybe skip them on super hot summer days unless you want to end up as a puddle but for the most part they can be styled from edgy to chic.

The leather dress trend might sound a bit daunting but with the right cut and styling they can work for pretty much any occasion from the office to date night but maybe skip them for weddings.

If you’re looking for ways to wear leather dresses that are more sleek fashion than dominatrix, here’s 5 ways to style them and keep them on rotation all year not just for Fall and winter:

  1. Style them over shirts and with pumps, ankle boots or knee high boots for Fall and Winter. Thigh high boots can look stunning with leather mini dresses but can quickly take the look into trashy territory. So be careful with the boot texture and cut of the dress if you’re styling OTK boots with them.
  2. For Winter add a roll neck and tights underneath leather mini dresses for extra warmth.
  3. Let your dress be the statement piece and go for minimal jewelry and accessories like small gold hoop earrings, a gold chain bracelet and gold watch.
  4. Add matching leather bags and boots for a chic on trend leather on leather monochromatic look that’s in style for 2024.
  5. When wearing leather dresses in the spring and summer go for lighter leather fabrics and colors that won’t break you out in a sweat. Style them with light colored loafers or slides to keep the look light and fresh.
