Celebrity Trend: Leather Skirts and Dresses

Leather pants and jackets have always been popular but the latest fashion trend is to wear leather in a traditionally feminine way: as a skirt or a dress.

Leather bottoms were all over the runway. Below you see leather being used in Alexander Wang’s collection at New York Fashion Week, Salvatore Ferragamo‘s collection at Milan fashion week and in Balmain‘s collection at Paris Fashion Week.

Celebrities have been spotted wearing leather skirts for months now.
