Emmy Rossum has worn one of our favourite dresses of 2015 so far. So it’s time to leather up ladies because it seems that this year is all about making a statement.

Thought leather was a little too risqué for you? Well Emmy’s stunning dress has just gone to prove that leather can look seriously demure when you want it to.

The stunning actress took to the ‘Shameless’ premiere in a stunning panelled dress from J Mendel’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection. She paired it with pointy black courts, a velvet clutch and a stunning red lip. We are in love with her look – it is both the charcoal-grey shade and the flare shape which gives the usually daring material a far softer edge.

So when you are considering your next investment piece, why not try out a leather dress? Where Emmy has made it red carpet ready with her elegant accessories and statement make-up, this type of dress could also become your new workwear essential. Wear it in a pinafore style with a crisp white shirt or a black polo-neck underneath, a pair of patent brogues and get ready to beat the rest of the office in the style stakes.
