When leather started getting introduced into the retail world, I was a little unsure. I tried on a pair of fitted leather trousers and couldn’t decide if I looked like a dominatrix or someone successfully rocking the latest trend. I’m still not too sure what I resembled, but either way, I kept it up. However, when I tried on my first leather dress I just wasn’t brave enough to carry it off! After months of weighing it up, I’ve concluded that I love the trend – I can’t get enough of leather and think it looks fantastic, if worn in moderation that is.
If your wardrobe is engaged to marry florals and pastels, then maybe it’s time to start experimenting with leather for this season, or faux leather if you don’t have the largest bank account.
To counteract blinding brights and a party of prints, leather skirts are paving the way to find a warm and goth-inspired corner in the closet. This season, leather and skirts are teaming up in an array of cuts, styles and colours to provide a classy, modern way of dressing up feminine styling. Here’s some images from Fashionising.com that showcase some of the hottest ways to wear the trend straight from the catwalk…
My High Street favourite is this Khaki Skater Skirt from Oasis. If your a bit worried about how to wear this trend on a day to day basis, I think this skirt is an ideal starter and it’s not priced too bad for £42
