How to Pull Off A Leather Skirt

  • Leather skirts may be a little intimidating for some people. Because leather isn't a very casual material to incorporate into an outfit, it may seem hard to pull off.

     

    However, if you choose the right one, it can be very flattering and be the focal point of an outfit (in a good way).

     

    STEP 1: CHOOSING THE RIGHT ONE

     

    When choosing a leather skirt, you want to think about the occasion you're wearing it for first before anything else. You don't want to show up to a club wearing a pleated leather skater skirt and you certainly don't want to wear a tight pencil leather skirt to visit the grandparents.

     

    Here are some of my top picks for the style of the skirt and what occasions they can be worn to:

    These asymmetrical skirts can be worn casually without puffing out like leather skater skirts. If the rest of your outfit is more casual, these serve as something that'll definitely draw attention towards you!

    Leather skater skirts can definitely spice up the innocent-girl look. Paired with a tight crop top or a tight long-sleeve can definitely let the skirt take the spotlight.

     

    STEP 2: CHOOSING WHAT TOP TO WEAR IT WITH

    Leather skirts usually have a lot of noise on their own. Pairing them with a sequiny top or a very patternful blouse can be gaudy. To pull off a more sophisticated and put-together look, pair the leather skirt with basics.

    Basics do not mean one-colored, boring camis and t-shirts. What I mean by basics is to tastefully pair it with more neutral colors, and if it is paired with something brighter, it is worn best if the color is not involved in a mixture of other bright colors and patterns.

     

    Here are some more examples:

    STEP 3: CHOOSING WHAT SHOES AND OTHER ACCESSORIES TO WEAR IT WITH

     

    As seen in pictures above, leather skirts look really nice with tights or without tights. Pair them with a bright shoe if the rest of the outfit lacks color. Or, pair them with some closed toe booties/heels as seen from most of the pictures above.

     

    Good Luck!
