A leather skirt is one of those luxury items that you may or may not indulge in. They are not for every day use, rather to be worn on special days or days you need to change it up a little. If you choose the right one, it will last a lifetime when stored and cared for properly. Leather after all, is simply a magical product that is made to last.
Not to mention the ‘lust-worthy’ factor. Purchasing a good quality leather skirt is indulgence like no other. Kind of like the truffle shavings on your pasta when you eat at a nice restaurant. The good stuff. Why not, I say…
This outfit is definitely a little more dressy, where as below I’ve paired it with a bomber jacket, a tee and some trainers. This takes it to a more street style, casual, everyday look.
It shows great versatility when styling a piece like this. It’s great to be able to work it up or down. A killer pair of heels and a slim cut cami would be super gorgeous too.

If you’re going to invest in a leather item, make sure it’s a really good quality. Definitely spend a bit more to get the right piece. After all, this is a “forever” item. Leather can be next level or really crappy. It’s so obvious that it’s a cheap product when it’s hard or rigid.
Whether you choose to dress it up or down, a leather skirt is a beautiful wardrobe addition and can really be worn with everything. If you get one that fits well for your body type, you will get so much wear out of it over time.
I love a good leather skirt, I think every fashion loving gal should own one. I love this high waisted mini. However I also own a pencil skirt and a really short one too. Let’s wait for the next fashion cycle comes around to get those ones out!
But for now…
