Jenni Kayne “Welt” Polo Dress: Leather: The Fabric of Our Lives

Well, maybe not exactly. But if you haven’t noticed, the leather dress has snuck its way into our wardrobes and now it’s starting to seem like a staple. There is something so sharp-witted and directional about a woman in a leather sheath – with bare legs, a good heel, and minimal accessories, that is.

Jenni Kayne’s fetching chestnut take is a great transitional piece, to take you from summer’s cooler days into chillier weather, no problem. Boxiness is cute when the hemline is this short; with an elongated lapel (with hidden snap closure) and casual welt pockets, it evokes a leggy, sixties-style vibe. Very Twiggy in her first photo shoots, very Veruschka in “Blow-Up.” Leather has never looked so youthful – or inadvertently sexy! On Shopbop for $995.

Pair with: Go vaguely avant-garde with Opening Ceremony’s “Chantel” platform pumps, in woven black leather on an off-kilter platform, for an overall look that’s relaxed-polished and smart. On Shopbop for $336 (from $480).
