Little Black Leather Dress
If you don't have a little black dress, LBD, in your wardrobe you might need to rethink some things. This season everything LBD is coming up leather and we love it. You don't have to go full on Matrix and rock and a skin tight leather dress, you can opt for a dress trimmed in leather or faux leather and shop for "leather look" fabrics that are likely more affordable and more forgiving on the body.
