The Leather Skirt Guide

Guys, I kind of have a leather skirt obsession. They’re timeless and a fabulous great way to give your feminine outfit a bit of edge. The beauty of a leather skirt is that everyone can rock one. Whether you’ve got a preppy, trendy, or more urban style, there’s a leather skirt there for you!

Leather Skater Skirts
1. Skater Skirt in Leather, ASOS, $143.45
2. Imitation Leather Skirt, H&M, $24.95
3. Vegan Leather Skater Skirt, Sanctuary, $98.00
4. Rock ‘n’ Roll Skater Skirt, Forever 21, $17.80
You can probably tell that I’m a huge fan of my leather skater skirt from the photo above. The one I have is a three-year-old skirt from Forever 21 (which has held up surprisingly well!) I can wear it season after season and it never really goes out of style. Wear your leather skater skirt with a graphic t-shirt and flats for day, and pair it with a blazer or a crop top for a night out on the town.
Embellished Leather Skirts
1. Perforated Faux Leather Skirt, Ark & Co., $74.00
2. Naomi Quilted Skirt, Nasty Gal, $68.00
3. Mini Skirt with Zips, ZARA, $139.00
4. Pencil Skirt with Faux Leather Panel, Ted Baker, $285.00
Want a truly unique leather skirt? Opt for one with embellishments! From zippers to leather panels to perforated leather, you can find a leather skirt that matches your style to a T. One big trend I’m seeing is a quilted leather skirt. We have quilted leather handbags, might as well have your handbags match your skirt, right?
Colored Leather Skirts
1. Youngblood Skirt, Nasty Gal, $58.00
2. Pleated Vegan Leather Skirt, Tinley Road, $69.00
3. Vegan Leather Studded Skirt, Ark & Co., $84.00
4. Faux Leather Skirt, Milo, $136.00
Don’t limit yourself to just black leather. Leather now comes in a rainbow of colors, from neutral tans, greys and navys to bold burgandy and turquoise shades. Opting for colored leather is a refreshing way to update this classic trend. 
Are you as obsessed with the leather skirt trend as I am? What type of leather skirt will you be rocking this season?

    Outfit #3 is perfection! I need that sweater!! I'm not sure if I'm on board for the leather skirt trend (for myself, that is), but it looks SO GOOD on you! I especially like how you paired the leather skirt with those booties. Adorable! 🙂
