How to Style a Leather Skirt

Jackets, pants, and blazers — faux leather looks good in just about any type of clothing and this black faux leather skirt is no exception. Interested in learning how to style it? Keep reading. 

I was recently on the hunt for some business casual items to go along with my new position at work. I’m transitioning from wearing a uniform so it was time for some wardrobe updates.

While perusing the aisles at Target, I came across this gorgeous faux-leather skirt (similar) and I just had to have it.

It’s A-line and has a slit up front which gave it an edgy feel. The soft material wasn’t too heavy and the cut and length were appropriate to wear to the office.

I also like the versatility of a faux-leather skirt; there are so many ways to style a leather skirt for fall and all year round.  Styling fall outfits is always tricky for me living in the south.  It’s not quite cold, but you still want to wear items that fit the season.  This time of year I like to wear midi length skirts and dresses and pair with knee high boots — It looks so chic.  Another fall staple is definitely a black faux leather jacket.   For these looks, I chose items that you may already have in your closet and will be easy to transition into fall. 

 

3 Ways to Wear Leather Skirt Style for Fall

Style #1: Graphic Tee

To dress the skirt down, I paired it with a faded, throwback graphic tee. The playfulness of the top along with the worn-out material gave this look a laid-back, running-errands-on-the-weekend vibe. I accessorized with a simple, black purse and studded neutral-colored slides.

Style #2: Chambray Button-Down

This is my favorite of the three looks, mainly because it just looks so chic. The mix in materials — denim & leather — really gives this outfit an edge. I left the last two snaps on the shirt undone to allow me to tie the hem. It gives it a cute detail while also creating shape.

It brings the eyes towards the center while your shoulders and the A-line cut create balance and an hourglass silhouette. I also paired this look with snake-print slides with gold hardware detail. These slides elevate the look to a more elegant vibe but it’s still comfortable and functional.

Style #3: Oversized Knit Sweater

My last look is pairing this faux-leather skirt with a chunky knit sweater. This one was a little tricky because of the volume in both the top and bottom. Because the sweater is boxy, I decided to tuck it into the skirt.

This allows you to create shape so you don’t look like the clothes just swallowed you up. I paired it with a similar heel that I received from 1.State .

So there you have it ladies…One faux-leather skirt, three different looks. I feel like there are a million other ways to style this very versatile skirt.

You can definitely transition this skirt straight into cooler weather with some booties and a coat. For other transitional fashion inspiration, make sure you check out this post.

And I’ll leave you with this picture that I thought was just so hilarious and gives you a little behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating these shots.

My husband is my photographer and I’m so thankful for his help! As busy as he is, he’ll still take time to go with me to a location to take my pictures (because who wants mirror selfies all the time, amiright?)

And as usual, we have our two girls in tow. The girls kept busy with a ball while mom and dad worked and in the picture below, Ava is upset that Olivia wouldn’t kick it to her. Love my little family for being so supportive (and patient) while mommy does what she loves.
