One of my favourite buys recently has been my leather skirt (H&M £19.99) not only because it is a staple as leather is everywhere this season but also because leather has turned into a little obsession of mine. Not only this, but the skirt also just seems to work with everything - making it very versatile. It won't sit in your wardrobe unworn and you're money becomes well spent. The other thing I love about leather is that it can make an outfit more interesting and chic as it adds in another fabulous texture that steers way from the usual jersey, denim and wool for winter!
So here are two ways I like to wear my leather skirt for the day and for the evening..
To take your leather skirt for a drink down the pub, maybe a day Christmas shopping, or even a causal day at the office by wearing a striped top like this one from New Look. A stripey top is a wardrobe must have, making nearly anything look chic (which probably why the French wear them so much!) Wear black tights or even some dark red/oxblood coloured ones for more colour. Then finish off with an studded ankle boot, a statement necklace and a bag to throw over your shoulder. The studs and spikes on the ankle boots and necklace make it a more modern and on trend look. Easy.
Now it's time to fan that skirt up a little bit - a nice bralet would look great and will emphasise that small waist. I love this white crochet one from Topshop as it takes the edge off the tough biker leather skirt. Or maybe try something plainer, a coloured body and add in a big statement belt such as this vintage rose one. Finish off with a clutch and some heels for the evening. PERFECT.
