How to Style a Leather Skirt
Probably my favourite way to wear my leather skirt, which is a lovely pencil skirt, sitting on my waist and then skimming over my hips to just above my knees, is to layer it up with textures. Here I’ve tucked in a blue fluffy jumper and pulled on my black fluffy cardigan for extra warmth and fluffiness. Paired with this lovely faux animal head warmer, I’m all set for winter!
If you’re looking for a more monochrome, rock chick look, then pair up your skirt with a leather jacket and a chunky necklace for good measure. Either slip on some converse or chunky boots. These Topshop platform tie ups are perfect to add a bit of interest to the outfit and detract from all the leather.
Dressing up for the evening? The coloured strappy cami’s that are all over the place at the moment are perfect for tucking into a leather skirt for nights out. Choose a bright one to add a pop of colour like this blue one here. They add a feminine touch too which helps remove the stereotype of leather being boyish and for biker styles.
I’ve worn all of these outfits with thick black tights too for those chillier days when bare legs would get you more judging looks than you’d like. There are all different cuts of leather skirts available including the skater style, which is particularly flattering for pear of hourglass figures.
So have I convinced you to dive into the leather world? If so, shop a few of my favorite leather skirts below! Also, be sure to comment and let us know if you plan on trying this trend?!
