How To Wear The Leather Skirt This Autumn-Winter
The epitome of cool, is there no style greater than the leather skirt?
A texture once a go-to for ‘70s punk subcultures, the leather skirt resurfaces every autumn-winter. Designed to be worn with a sense of confidence and defiance, if you’re longing for a style staple to revolve around your day-to-night outfits around, the leather skirt is the versatile essential you need. Here’s how we’re planning to slip into this thigh-skimming look.
Given how long we’ve spent hiding our legs in sweatpants over the last year, it’s time to embrace wearing leg-baring skirts.
Unlike a pair of failsafe jeans, the leather mini has the power to instantly elevate a chunky knit or a plain turtleneck into a noteworthy outfit. Whether worn bare-legged or with of-the-moment patterned tights, a leather mini skirt is one of those indispensable pieces that fashion editors and streetstyle stars just can’t get enough of. There’s a reason why it’s been a tried-and-test staple for style icons Sienna Miller and Naomi Campbell.
Going hell for leather is not strictly limited to black either; in fact, leather skirts in an array of earth colours are a great way to update working wardrobes when stepping back into the office. An A-line midi skirt the colour of wild berries, with unexpected utility belt detailing, proves how easy leather separates can be. While a wrap skirt, cut from sumptuous forest green leather, reaches great new heights, looking effortless when paired with a simple T-shirt.
For avid fashion fans, our advice is simple: go all in. Replicate the all-leather look by pairing an A-line mini with a leather blazer. It’s a look that boasts confidence, one that will empower you with a strong sense of independence and individuality. We particularly like the relaxed silhouette of the Lyra, a double-breasted blazer with a leather tie belt that’s perfect for cinching in at the waist. Just complete the look with a great pair of knee-high boots or slingback heels for tapping into the retro revival trend.
