Do or Don't: Leather

One of the new Fall '12 fashion trends is leather.
I'm talking, leather dresses, leather skirts, leather pants, jackets, gloves, you name it and they probably have it in leather.

I've never really been a huge fan of leather myself until I found this faux (that's fancy *or French* for fake) leather jacket at Forever 21 two years ago *see photo*. It suddenly became my go-to going out jacket and I instantly felt 100x cooler. I don't know why but leather has that effect on people.

This picture was taken in 2009 so we were way ahead of the trend! Hah!

So I started thinking, would I attempt to wear a leather dress or would I just look like a wannabe biker chick?

I have to ask, is leather a do or a don't?

Readers, Miss Heather and I want to know what you think of the trend. Have we given you inspiration to rock that leather dress or do feel like this is a trend that never should have surfaced?
Let us know!
