The 7 Personalities of the Leather Dress Trend - Which One Are You?


Alexa Chung, Annasophia Robb, Jessica Alba (Getty)The leather dress trend is unstoppable. In fact, it's so abundant, there's a look for everyone. Are you a risk-taker or a girly-girl? A sophisticate or a goth? A prep or a vixen? How you approach this fashion statement says more than you know. Here's some insight into your style and personality—just let the likes of Olivia Palermo and Jessica Alba be your guide.

1. The Risk-Taker Like Olivia Palermo
Olivia Palermo attends The Cinema Society & Jaeger-LeCoultre Hosts A Screening Of "The Host" at Tribeca Grand Hotel on March 27, 2013 in New York City.
(Getty)While everyone else is trying to be sexy, you're focusing on trend-setting. Who says a leather dress needs to be tight? A bold silhouette and equally bold accessories are all you need. Your closet is filled with extravagant match-everything/match-nothing shoes, clutches, and jewelry. The Man Repeller is your favorite blog and your cat is named after British royalty.

2. The Girly-Girl Like Annasophia Robb

(Getty)You wouldn't dare step into a leather dress unless it was colorful, patterned, or what Audrey Hepburn's biker babe alter ego would wear. Your wardrobe is an explosion of prints, bows, and all things Zooey Deschanel. You constantly contemplate bangs and you live for picnics, sundresses, and Anthropologie candles.

3. The Relentless Fashionista Like Kim Kardashian

(PacificCoastNews.com)You don't care if you're 9 months pregnant, you will show off every curve in an on-trend leather dress. And wear heels that look/feel like torture devices. In fact, you already bought a leather onesie and leather sheets for the baby's leather crib.

4. The Sophisticate Like Rose Byrne
Rose Byrne attends the Sydney premiere of her new film 'I Give it One Year', held at the Event Cinemas.
(PacificCoastNews.com)You're in the business of sharp ladylike dressing. You own JCrew's No. 2 pencil skirt in every color. Your dry cleaner and tailor know you by name, a section of your closet is dedicated to blazers, and you never kiss on a first date. You like the Big Bang Theory and to "indulge" in No Pudge Brownies from Trader Joes.

5. The Goth Like Rihanna
Rihanna attends the "Schiaparelli And Prada: Impossible Conversations" Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 7, 2012 in New York City.
(Getty)Crocodile skin and talons? Uh-huh. You wear black (or gray) every day, have worn Doc Martens since Jr. High, and can never own enough leather jackets. You have a sincere appreciation for dark style without having a creepy crush on Marilyn Manson. Anymore.

6. The Prep Like Alexa Chung

(Getty)See? A leather dress is totally your style! If it comes with a long-sleeve button-up underneath. You proudly rock a sweater vest on the regular, own a rainbow of skinny belts, and a West Highland Terrier. You managed to pull off knee-high socks when not dressing up as a school girl and you believed in Santa till you were 12.

7. The Vixen Like Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba arrives at the Versace Haute-Couture show as part of Paris Fashion Week Fall / Winter 2013 at the Ritz hotel on July 1, 2012 in Paris, France.
(Getty)This strapless studded Versace number is so you. You're smoking hot and take every opportunity to remind the world of this fact. GoFugYourself and BetchesLoveThis fuel your soul. People are always asking why you're so dressed up. You only wear shoes that can double as lethal weapons.
