Leather will always have its roots deep in rock'n'roll but this season it has been reinvented with more feminine sensibilities.
And there is no better way to illustrate this than with Kate Sylvester's stunning Blythe dress, made from a turquoise Nappa lamb leather.
Another two fabulous options are Hideseekers' Suzi Q dress, the ultimate LBD, and Shen's lambskin leather dress, in a classic shift style. Both pieces are functional and timeless.
Think about layering when it comes to wearing all three dresses - simply add a merino polo neck underneath as the weather cools.
Alternatively, try a leather skirt. Harman Grubisa's divine luxurious leather skirt is on my to-buy list and is styled perfectly with its Melange skivvy. Australian import Seed has a beautiful asymmetrical leather skirt in its collection, featuring a full, floaty skirt and a-line silhouette anchored by cross-over straps on the waistband.
My first introduction to leather was in the 80s with a pair of Jeanmakers leather jeans. They were so tight I had to lie down to get them on.
For a modern spin on this all time classic check out Stolen Girlfriends Club's leather moto quilt pant. Its quilted panelling through the waistband and knees and exposed zip detailing make it the perfect merger of biker chic and fashion friendly style.
These days leather doesn't have to be leather. Moochi's super-cute Harley Culottys are made from a "vegan leather" with a price to match.
A leather jacket is probably the most traditional piece you could add to your collection and the clever people at Neuw have designed the Berlin jacket, taking inspiration from Iggy Pop and the jacket he wore when he was recording in West Berlin in the 70s. There is nothing to not like about this jacket.
For something a little different I love Trelise Cooper's Wadd Up jacket, which balances luxury and toughness perfectly. It's a leather bomber jacket with a quilted front and an elaborate floral motif embossed on the back.
Check out The Line Up for three of my favourite full-sized leather bags this winter - the Montana Hobo from Witchery, Harry & Co's classic Anytime Anywhere and Mr Pomper Cheetah from Deadly Ponies.Raad more at:cocktail dresses
The 31-year-old heiress has revealed she loves to step out of her comfort zone when it comes to her personal style and enjoys experimenting with different looks to express herself.
She said: "Fashion, for me, is all about experimenting, taking some risks and stepping outside your comfort zone. There's no real rule when it comes to fashion. It's really just about expressing yourself and having fun."
The blonde beauty added she refuses to follow trends and prefers to find a signature look to make her own.
She explained: "I think it's all about being original and true to yourself. I think we live in a society where so many young girls are trying to dress like their favourite actor or musician, and it just looks like a bunch of clones walking around. I highly encourage women to find their own original sense of style and come up with [their] own trademarks."
Nicky - who has created a capsule collection of handbags for Linea Pelle, entitled NICKY HILTON x linea pelle, which will be released this autumn - has ensured her passion for "unique" designs is evident in the line and is "really pleased" with how her range has turned out.
She told Fox News Magazine: "I like finding unique bags. I'm sort of over the whole 'It-bag,' where every girl is carrying the same style. When I'm shopping for a handbag, I want something unique, and when I say unique, I mean a shape or print that I'm not going to see everyone and their mother carrying.
"I've collaborated with Linea Pelle on a small capsule collection [because] I've really wanted to embody my personality, aesthetic and taste into this line. I've featured my favourite shapes, styles and colours. I wanted to keep it really classic. I didn't really want to make something trendy.
"I'm really pleased with how the collection has turned out. Each piece is stylish and practical for every day. I try to always design timeless pieces that women will have in their wardrobes for years to come."Read more here:cocktail dresses
