1 Skirt, 3 Styles

A leather skirt is not just for nightclub parties, it can also be worn during the day time, as well as to the office – if you have a fashion forward workplace. With the right styling, it can look equally dressy, formal or casual depending upon the occasion.

1. Keep It Casual

A loose jumper or printed sweater can instantly give you the right amount of sweet and sexy and make your leather skirt look breezy. Wear stockings, put on a cross-body bags, and you are ready for a shopping trip with your besties.

Add more glam: This look is all about accessorising. Bring out the animal print boots, chunky choker, a sunhat and cool pair of shades to stay peppy.

2. Don’t Let the Weather Get you Down

A leather skirt is great for experimenting with the all-black look. As the air is still nippy, add layers with a black overcoat and tights. Strap on your favourite black heels and you are ready to step out in style.

Add more glam: Nothing shines more with black than a diamond. Either wear a big rock on your fingers or sweep your hair to one side to show off your diamond earrings. Unbutton your coat and put on a big metal belt to draw attention to your waist.

3. Office Chic

Leather skirt in the office? Oh, yes. Pair your boring plain white shirt with a black leather skirt. The contrasting colours will instantly brighten up the entire outfit. Tuck in the shirt for a formal look.

Add more glam: Wear a blazer with three-quarter or rolled up sleeves with a big and stunning wrist watch. Instead of a full sleeves white shirt, you can also opt for more feminine cowl neck or ruffled tops. A subtle collar necklace will look just perfect on this look.
