If you only invest in one trend driven piece this fall, make it the leather skirt. Tons of celebs and street style darlings have already been spotted skirting the issue in leather before fall even officially started!
Plus, this fab find of a piece can be styled in a ton of different ways (that’s how you know it’s time to consider investing in one). Here are just a few ways to work the leather skirt into your own wardrobe this year.
1. All grown up
A leather pencil skirt is a great update for a creative professional look. Just trade your regular office skirt with a leather one. Fitted, high waist versions feel particularly up for playing the part of the refined grown up. Pair it with a ladylike blouse, blazer or cardigan, add work appropriate heels, stylish glasses and you’re good to go. Think of it as nontraditional suiting. Layer one over tights or tall boots throughout the winter.
2. Modern Rebel
Channel your inner rebel with a leather skirt and your favorite t-shirt or slouchy sweater. A classic tee looks just as good with a leather skirt as it does with jeans, so this is a must try if you want to give your skinnies a break. Keep it cute with stylish sneakers or flats during the day, then trade them out for killer heels at night.
3. Fun and Flirty
A flirty skater or pleated skirt style gives the sometimes heavy look of leather a lighter free spirited vibe. Keep the school girl inspired skirt shapes modern and adult appropriate with a button down blouse and sharp accessories.
4. Color Coated
When it comes to the leather skirt trend, don’t just bet on black. No color is off limits for this look! Imagine a fire engine red or cool cobalt leather skirt as just the pop of color your wardrobe needs this season. Try wearing bright leather with a statement print to stand out from the crowd or temper the brightness with basic neutral accouterments for a more sophisticated spin.
From the bad ass mini skirt to the knee grazing pencil, there’s a version of the leather skirt for every girl to rock this fall, so let’s get to it!
