|Skirt: Vintage Thrifted, Top: J Crew, Sweater: H&M, Boots: Bandolino|
A couple of years ago, a leather skirt was no where in my closet. I had NONE! And I didn't know what I was missing! Now, I can't imagine my sartorial life with no leather skirt....and for me, it simply HAS to be the real thing. I just can't seem to get as excited about pleather or ultra suede.
You know what's great about suede and leather skirts?
*No ironing needed....anytime you can wear something without having to iron it is just a good start to the day!
*Always the same fit....barring any extreme body changes, your leather skirt will pretty much fit you the same every time you wear it; unlike fabric that seems to modify itself a little with every wearing.
*Wear it year round....Yes! You read that right! Why not wear your leather year round? For this skirt, I could easily do a cute tank and a great heel and I'm out the door! While leather pants may prove to be a hot box in the warmer months, a leather skirt still allows you to keep the breezeway!
*Makes you look like you stepped up your game....When DOESN'T leather look like your A-game? Seriously! Throw on a leather skirt and any top and tres chic!
Every leather skirt I have (I think 5 in all) was thrifted. To buy a nice leather skirt new may be a bit cost prohibitive, but with so many thrifting options there's no need to mark them off your wish list!
Do you have any leather skirts? What do YOU love about them?
