Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday 🙂
If you are anything like us, you are totally crushing on all things leather at the moment. Leather is a timeless trend and has survived all recent decades but, what what is changing is how we wear it! We have moved from the simple leather jacket onto leather dresses, skirts, shirts you name it. A trend that is easily made your own and adapted to your look, we have something for everyone in this style edit 🙂
Check it out!
The LBLD (little black leather dress)
So first up we have the LBLD. A huge trend at the moment, the leather dress is a staple wardrobe piece. Our first look, this River Island Black leather panel bodycon dress is gorgeous for a night out with the girls or a date night. It is real night-wear piece featuring a high neck and a wrap-over style. A great party dress coming in at a very reasonable €50.
This next dress is from the Zoe Jordan design forum for River Island. This is a real day-night dress that you could wear with tights and boots during the day, or tan the legs and pop on a heel for night.
Pricier than the other two dresses at €160, this is an investment piece as it has a timeless shape that you would get great wear out of.
Lastly is this 2-in-1 bodycon dress once again from River Island. This dress is incredibly chic and would suit you ladies out there that aren’t too fond of their arms. The leatherette skirt will nip you in on the waist and create a gorgeous silhouette (it will especially suit you ladies rocking a booty). Coming in at €67, this dress would be gorgeous for dinner out or even glammed up for the up-coming party season!

The Leather Skirt
We LOVE leather skirts in SoSueMe HQ. Made a style staple by the likes of Kim K, they suit every body shape from slim to curvy.
This first leather style (no1) is a gorgeous pencil shape taupe skirt which can be worn as a transitional piece from day to night. It would make a great work skirt with a crisp white shirt tucked! We love the feminine shape pencil skirts give and with the leather detail in this one it is bang on trend!
Our second piece is this black number from River Island. This paneled skirt is also that a beautiful pencil shape that comes down just above the knee so is a perfect piece for working into your everyday wardrobe as well as a fab outfit for a night on the town. A black leather-look skirt is a real investment piece and will never go out of style. Style as suggested above with a turtle-neck and heels.
Lastly (no3) is such a girly style which we would style with opaque tights and a pair of Chelsea boots. It is a great easy-wear piece and would be gorgeous with knitwear this upcoming chilly season!

The Leather Top
How cool are leather tops? Such a trendy way to incorporate leather into your outfit.
Our first look is a leather-look shirt. We would team this with a pair of black skinny jeans and boots. Very Miranda Kerr 🙂
Next is this Leather Tab Top from Zoe Jordan’s Design Forum for River Island. You may have seen this on Sue during the week while she was filming for an upcoming project! It is so designer looking and a real wow-piece if you are looking for a style for a special occasion.
Lastly is this leather bralet, don’t be alarmed, we wouldn’t be wearing this on its own 🙂 Bralets are great for under a low-cut shirt or a top that is just that bit too revealing. By all means you could also wear this on it’s own with high-waisted trousers and a blazer for a more daring look.
