Label it as workwear, date night necessity or just plain fun, but the leather skirt is FIERCE for fall and I am telling you three reasons why you need to incorporate one into your wardrobe ASAP! This skirt has been my number #1 selling item of September and soon you’ll see why. It’s amazingly versatile, super comfy, and impressively well made for the $69 pricetag. I sized down because it runs a little generous and I am wearing the size 0 for reference [I’m 5’4′ and weigh 117 pounds if that helps with measurements/etc.]
One. It’s Fun with Graphic Tees
Just like I mentioned above, you can dress it up, dress it down… the list goes on and on. I absolutely love a chic style of graphic tee paired with a leather skirt–funky and fun and a little bit edgy, I think everyone can pull it off and have a good time doing it, especially with SO many fun graphics out right now [here is my favorite site for stocking up on any and all graphic tees and tops]! Styled below are a few other leather skirts paired with graphic tees for some inspiration. PRO TIP: if you’re looking to elongate your silhouette, opt for a high-waist, a-line skirt to make your legs look much longer than they really are.
TWO. Layer It Up
Pair it with a camisole and distressed denim jacket like I did, or venture out of your comfort zone and try something a bit more eclectic… here are several options to layer it up with a sweater, button up shirt or a feminine printed blouse–the options are endless! PRO TIP: If you’re petite like I am, opt for something more full-coverage and a bit oversized to keep things all in proportion.
THREE. Don’t Play it Safe… Think COLOR
Already stocked up on your basic black or cognac style leather skirt?? WELL… why don’t you try something with a bit more color, pattern or accent?? Check out these fun new finds for fall that are anything but neutral:
Make sure you make this trend happen friends… it’s one you’re going to see SO much more of this season so buckle up baby!! Have a great weekend lovelies OXOX
