Leather in summer…seriously?! It may be shocking to see stars wearing this fabric in the hot summer weather, but leather is definitely not confined to the cooler months and here’s why: The weather in the evenings tends to drop, allowing room for creativity with our fashion choices — meaning that leather does not have to be ruled out! Hollywood stunners are showing a variety of ways that leather dresses can be worn this summer and definitely as we transition into fall.
Although some of these stars’ styles are strictly for the red carpet, they will surely inspire you as you pick out a cute summer leather (or faux leather) dress to be daring in during the evenings. Some notable celebs to be seen in this trend include reality star Khloe Kardashian, newly engaged Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck’s wife Jennifer Garner, actress Ginnifer Goodwin, blonde bombshell Malin Ackerman, and Sin City‘s Jessica Alba.
Jessica Alba looked stunning with hair in soft waves and figure to-die-for in a Versace beaded, leather strapless dress while at the Versace Haute Couture Show in Paris. Khloe Kardashian was darling and daring at InStyle’s Summer Soiree in West Hollywood, Calif., dressed in a fitted leather dress with a pop of apricot at the neckline and a pair of sky-high heels. Jennifer Aniston recently donned a fitted leather dress as well, but with only one-shoulder, as she made her way around the MTV Movie Awards.
Jennifer Garner added just a touch of leather to her blue dress — an easy way to rock the leather trend this summer — with black leather around the neckline and a stripe down the front. Garner made this an easy day option by dressing down her look with super casual shoes. Many think of leather as needing to be form-fitted, but Ginnifer Goodwin and Eva Longoria both show how leather dresses can also look adorable in an A-line, poofy skirt shape. Eva Longoria’s leather dress has laser cut details throughout the dress for added excitement and shock! Lastly, Malin Ackerman opted for a lovely mix of leather and sheer fabric, finding yet another way to wear this smooth trend during summertime.
