Real vs. Steal – Marc by Marc Jacobs Lena Leather Dress

by Irina on November 3, 2013

So you might’ve already heard that “leather is the new denim” this fall. Which is true, but leather is on trend pretty much every fall season. We’re used to seeing leather jackets, leather shoes and leather pants by now, but what about leather dresses? Is it possible to pull off a full-on leather frock without looking some fetish S&M freak? Well, I think it can be done. With this leather dress by Marc by Marc Jacobs for example. It doesn’t show too much skin with its high neck and the 3/4 sleeves yet is short enough to still look sexy, cool and edgy.

Jennifer Lopez Faux-Leather Ponte Sheath Dress

If you’re on the fence regarding the wearability of leather dresses and/or don’t want to spend a fortune on such a special item of clothing, check out this faux-leather frock by Jennifer Lopez which is a great alternative to the Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. The sleeves on this one are slightly longer and the faux-leather fabric looks a little dull compared to the real leather MJ dress, but otherwise the design is almost identical. Plus, this dress will cost you only $42 (sale price)!
