Have you heard of the latest fashion revival from the 90s? It’s time to welcome its majesty the leather skirt. And with so many trends and styles popular today, there are also many ways to incorporate this classic piece into your outfits. What’s more, there are many cuts and designs of leather skirts on the market nowadays, so that you can easily create the look that you feel most comfortable with.
Casual leather skirt
If you like to feel comfy and stylish, the casual chic is the go-to style for you and you can get away with many different looks. Combine your leather skirt with casual tops and tees, spice things up with a plaid shirt, or rock a nice sweater. You can always add more warmth for the upcoming colder months by wearing tights or stockings. Of course, don’t forget your favourite pair of sneakers or comfy boots.
Edgy leather skirt
You might fancy that edgy, almost wild-like look, and the leather skirt is a perfect way to achieve it as well. When paired with crop tops or string tops, this look can be absolutely stunning. By all means, finish off your edgy style with leather jacket and chunky heels. Another trend that can be easily incorporated into this outfit to complement the leather skirt is rocking your mid-thigh tights. The award for perfect jewellery in this case goes to chokers and statement rings.
Professional leather skirt
Business women can also enjoy this leather piece with simple combination tips and tricks. With a leather skirt being the accent piece of the outfit, you can suit it up with classic womens tops and blazers. Of course, whether you’ll wear your flats or stiletto shoes is up to you. When the weather gets colder, knee-high boots are a great alternative.
Romantic leather skirt
There are many colours to choose from when it comes to leather skirts nowadays. If you want to create a romantic look, you can get yourself leather skirts in pastel colours and pair them with lace tops, blouses and woven tops. Of course, opt for tights or stockings with delicate designs and wear your favourite pair of shoes to complete the look. Fitted coats would look great as an outerwear choice for those who’d like to try out romantic vibe of the leather skirt.
Retro leather skirt
Similarly to the choice of colours there are also many different cuts to leather skirts. In that respect, you can get yourself one that flares into A-cut. These are usually high-waisted, which allows for some interesting top choices as well. If you want to keep it purely retro, tuck in a loose blouse or shirt. Make things more interesting with patterns and choker necklaces as well. Vintage-inspired blazers and bomber jackets would match this look really well. When it comes to shoes, you can always wear your stilettos with smaller heel, but there’s really no absolute rule to this bit.
Boho leather skirt
With boho being your preferred fashion style, you can pretty much choose any leather skirt cut and colour that you like. The only thing to keep in mind is how well you’re going to match it with the rest of the outfit. For example, if you’re a fan of classic mini, go for earthy and fall colours for the rest of your outfit. Flowy cardigans, statement boho jewellery and fringe shoes would complete this look perfectly.
Don’t wait a moment to look fashionable and trendy this upcoming season. Leather skirts are on the top of the list for anyone who wants to show their individuality but keep things consistent with the particular style. Most importantly, wearing leather is definitely something that will make you stand out and boost your self-esteem, thus making you look very attractive and confident.
