Fall fashion

Calling all leather lovers! Designers including Rebecca Minkoff, Alexander Wang and Michael Kors sent models decked out in the coolest leather duds this season. Want to test-drive this super hot look? Join us as we shop out this must-have trend.

That little leather bomber hanging in your closet has never been more fabulous! Throw yours over a basic tee for the weekend or over your favorite LBD for the office. (Yes, a leather jacket can be dressy.)

But leather can also be worn in other ways, as well, like we saw in Saint Laurent's collection. Try a little leather dress. Or "LLD," as we like to call it. Never tried one before? Trust us, you'll fall in love. Wear one to work and you'll appear instantly sophisticated. Slip into one for date night with your husband and you'll look unbelievably sexy.

Here are some tips on how to style a fabulous LLD for the office and the weekend.

For the office

Depending on where you work, a leather dress by itself may not be the most appropriate look — especially if it's sleveless like the one here. To dress it up a bit, add a structured black blazer, colorful, yet classic pumps and simple earrings!

Leather trends for the office

DKNY leather and canvas dress $495, Topshop structured blazer $100, Pim + Larkin opaque round studs $11, Zara high-heel vamp shoe $20, Walter Baker Lancia satchel $178

For the weekend

Go all out on the weekends! Meaning: Have fun with your accessories! No need to cover up the dress with a jacket or sweater on Saturday or Sunday (unless, of course, it's cold), so add a fierce, printed platform, stacking bracelets and a cool clutch for a totally chic look.

Leather trends for the weekend

DKNY leather and canvas dress $495, Topshop Lanie cut-out platforms $120,
