One day I'd just like to meet Olivia Munn and ask, "How do you do it, how do you look so effortlessly put together all the time?" Olivia Munn's leather dress at an event in L.A. basically proves that the mini leather dress will never go out of style. Consider it one of the edgier staples in your closet that will save more fashion emergencies than you know.
Perhaps the most important wardrobe staple (don't quote me on this, I may change my mind) is the Little Black Dress. It is the most versatile piece, and can easily be dressed up or down, depending on where you're headed. Pair it with your favorite flats and a blazer, and it can be totally professionally appropriate, or add some statement jewelry and your favorite heels, and it's perfect for happy hour, too. There's a reason women are so obsessed with the trusty LBD.
But, why not take it one step further with a (faux) leather dress? It basically takes the timeless classic and adds a totally modern and edgy update. If you're one to take some fashion risks, the leather mini dress was practically made for you.
At the Ashe + Leandro for Merida collaboration in L.A., Munn rocked a fitted leather dress with a cinched waist and embellished collar. It was so simple, yet so edgy and sexy. And that's one combination I'm always looking to emulate. To top it all off, she wore strappy nude heels and a blue box clutch. Essentially, she looked perfect.
