the leather skirt


The idea of fall shopping right now seems so counter-intuitive--and yet soooo tempting! Of course, I have begun to assemble a mental list of next season must-have's, and among the high-rankers is a knee-length leather skirt. (I will share my complete list once it crystallizes, which will be in the next week or so!). As a well-known designer recently told me, leather is the new denim. It's amazingly versatile, and next season, it will be pretty much ubiquitous. A leather skirt is both work and evening-friendly, but, to me, it looks entirely decadent and luxurious. And, yes, that goes for a faux one, too. The question is though, which one? Pleated A-line or pencil? My options thus far: a full pleated Asos skirt (I actually have and love this sleek Asos A-line--but order a size down as it runs big), this perforated pencil skirt and this swishy oxblood Zara skirt. I do know this: I would wear them all!

Was already going to purchase the ASOS a-line skirt...do you have it in black or white? Was thinking about the white but wondering about the quality overall and if you thought I could pull that off in the fall/winter?

I bought it in white--much sleeker than black--but it is a little stiff. Still, it looks awesome.

Just purchased a cognac colored full leather skirt from ebay with elastic waist and midi length. Can't wait to wear it for fall!
