Red leather dress and mini dress in leather jacket style combined with shiny tights and high heels. My red leather outfit is one of the most famous outfits that you’ve seen me wearing over and over again in many videos. There is nothing faster to put on than a jacket style mini dress. You might also remember my shiny blue leather jacket style dress. Today I’m showing you the red version made of thick leather.
The mini dress really wears around the top like a jacket, more precisely even like a wide leather jacket. You can easily turn up the collar or close the jacket dress completely. You can zipper it up to the top, so you are really protected from wind and weather.

Of course, the red leather dress is meant to be a mini dress. However, due to the shape and thickness of the material, the dress is also a good mix of dress and jacket in one. You don’t need an additional coat and honestly, it would hardly fit or look good due to the wide shoulders.
The sleeves can be pulled up a bit or left normal length. So you have the option to wear the dress casual or very high necked and unapproachable. I like to play with both versions and am best in the fall in the outfit on the road. In addition to high heels, boots also go perfectly with the look.
A red dress always stands out in the crowd. With a red dress made of leather, you stand out twice. However, the dress is not real leather, but vegan leather, that is, artificial leather or fake leather. The dress is lined from the inside and feels good on the skin. Mostly I just wear nice lingerie under the dress and can play a bit with the neckline, how much you should see of the bra. You can of course wear a shirt underneath, but it doesn’t fit my style.

Shiny tights to the leather outfit
The red mini dress fits many options for me – whether it’s business meeting, shopping in the city or meeting with friends. You can see me with this style and I like to be out and about like this. I often combine my classic 12cm high heels, my So Kate by Christian Louboutin. I like it when the red sole reflects the red of the dress.
For my leg I like to take a bright pantyhose, like in this case my Neon 40 in gobi. I really like the shiny legs with the red leather material. Black tights would completely change the style. Then I would rather still choose a sexy fishnet tights to emphasize the outfit. However, it is enough for me to make my legs look a little smoother with a pair of light-colored tights.

So is there any downside to wearing a leather jacket style dress like this? Visually it looks great – wide on top like a jacket, worked super tight at the skirt area for a sexy bottom. You feel sexy and good when you wear the dress, but there are also two points to think about.
Not only is the dress worked like a jacket, it also warms like a jacket. While you can take off your jacket in a restaurant, you can’t with the dress. Thus, it is more of an outdoor dress for cooler days or for cold American restaurants.
Jackets often have the factor that you also like to take them off because you can move around better. Right here comes the point that you have to keep in mind that you can’t really move your arms in the dress. You can’t just stretch your arms over your shoulders or comfortably use a knife and fork at the table. Also, the butt area is cut tight so it looks super. You have to keep in mind that it becomes hard to sit down because the butt volume just changes when you sit down. The skirt area becomes shorter and just tighter.
And still, I love wearing the dress. However, I prefer to wear it standing and walking in the city. Also a short coffee visit or a short meeting is no problem, but I would not appear with it to the extensive dinner. I’m happy to show you another option, how I like to combine the red leather dress outside with leather gloves.
