Stars who love to rock the trend

For celebrities who love fashion, leather is so hot right now.

Stars love to slip on sexy shiny items of clothing for both glitzy red carpet events and outings in cities all over the world.

The trend has been rocked in the form of skirts, trousers, capes, dresses and tees by everyone from A-list actresses to reality TV personalities.

For the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles on 10 August 2014, Kim Kardashian uses leather to accentuate her curves.

Kanye West’s glamorous wife matches a tummy-flashing wet-look crop top with a hip-hugging zebra pencil skirt and really impresses.

Just a few days later while taking a stroll through the streets of New York, Jessica Alba shows us that leather doesn’t need to be skintight to look seriously hot.

The actress styles baggy harem pants with a slouchy light grey sweater and a plain vest top.

TOWIE girl Jessica Wright follows the Hollywood star’s lead on 23 September 2014 by donning a flirty pleated A-line miniskirt for a night out in Ibiza with pals.

Made In Chelsea’s Stephanie Pratt, flame-haired singer Paloma Faith and socialite Poppy Delevingne have also been snapped wearing textured skirts this season.

Kristen Stewart and Jessie J are two famous faces desperate to put their own stamp on leather fashion.

The Twilight actress turns heads on 7 October 2014 in New York wearing a quirky wrap-around frock, while former judge on The Voice Jessie J is hard to miss just a day later at a style bash in stretchy dungarees.

Keen to know another way to wear leather fashion?

We suggest taking inspiration from ex-EastEnder Kara Tointon, model Christine Teigen and stunning Essex girl Georgia Kousoulou by embracing a pop of colour or touch of print.
