Tips for Wearing A Leather Skirt

Skirt: Forever 21 | Top: H&M | Shoes: J. Crew Factory | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bag: Vintage Chanel

Leather is always in style…but it’s not always easy to wear. Each season I love to experiment with leather pieces by finding ways to incorporate them into my wardrobe.  It’s all about what you choose and how you style it. If done right, leather can look very chic. The most important thing? Keep it classy. Here are a few tips for wearing a leather skirt.

Be mindful of the fit.

Don’t choose anything too short or too tight. I typically SIZE UP at least one size when I’m buying leather clothing. If your leather pieces are too snug or revealing, it will throw off the whole look. I prefer a mid length leather skirt – hitting just below the knee or longer. It’s a sophisticated length and flattering silhouette. If you like the look of shorter skirts, try adding a pair of black tights. The skirt I’m wearing (fringe included) hits just below my knee.

Pair with modest details.

It’s all about balance here. Offset your edgy skirt with something more modest on top. When I’m wearing a leather skirt I typically pair it with a more conservative top or a high neckline. Steer clear of anything too revealing. Stick to classic shoes and accessories too. I styled my leather skirt with a long sleeve turtleneck, black d’orsay pump and vintage handbag.

Go faux.

Faux leather has come a long way. Its not hard to find a leather piece that looks like the real thing. Synthetic alternatives also tend to be more flattering and comfortable to wear….not to mention SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper! This fringe faux leather skirt was only $25!

Find a fun style.

Choose a colored leather or something with a fun hemline or embellished detail. I love the fringe hem on this skirt – it will be perfect for the holidays! Click here to see another holiday leather look!

Layer With A Flannel

It’s starting to get cooler here in New England which means it’s time to start layering!!! The perfect lightweight layer to pair with your jersey is a flannel. I chose a buffalo plaid version with my teams colors to throw on over my number 12 jersey. An easy and casual layer that looks just as cute worn wrapped around your waist!

Denim on Denim

Before long we’ll be breaking out the heavier layers and winter hats! For this look I styled my Patriots  jersey with one of my all-time favorite combos – denim on denim. I tucked my bright red jersey into dark denim skinnies and layered it with a matching denim jacket. To top off the look I threw on my a favorite throwback winter beanie.
