The Power Of A Leather Skirt

If I’m looking to step up my look or hunting for something that will shake up my wardrobe, a leather skirt is the way to go. I’ve often thought of leather as being the ultimate power fabric- adding a bit of edge to a sleek work look or making smarter outfits more daytime casual. The power of a leather skirt works wonders in your wardrobe and a select few pieces help add a whole new dimension to our personal style, whatever that may be.

We all have days where we feel a little lack lustre in the self confidence department and our moods really affect our attitude to fashion, but there’s something about leather (and a leather skirt in particular) that perfectly encapsulates a strong sense of empowerment. I would hope that most of the time, women feel powerful in whatever they wear but I know this isn’t always the case and some days, the feeling just isn’t there. There’s something about a leather skirt that makes me feel feminine but also like I can do anything, and on a day when I have a lot of meetings and not a lot of confidence, that’s a really great feeling to find.

I’ve always loved a midi skirt. Transcends trends and works across seasons, this leather midi skirt has become my latest ‘don’t have to think about it’ option. It’s soft (essential with anything leather) and made from vegan leather (this whole brand does vegan leather); I think vegan materials and sustainability will be huge fashion movements this year. The versatility of a skirt like this also means it works for a number of occasions and pairs well with just about anything. Find the style of skirt that you’d usually go for (pencil, mini, A-line, asymmetrical) and try it in leather- even if you don’t think it’s your style, dressing outside the box is never a bad idea and you might be surprised by how it makes you feel.

I love this quilted belt midi version with a graphic tee or statement sweater tucked in and ankle boots. Cream and white knitwear looks so chic with dark leather , boots and lots of gold jewellery. For something a bit smarter or for a fashion event, I’d pair this skirt with a blouse, heels and colourful clutch. Leather skirts doesn’t always have to mean black! Although I love a good black mini leather skirt, I love the option of a softer pastel or sultry maroon to match a lip colour. Don’t be afraid to get creative! Shop my picks below and let me know if anyone agrees with me about how the power of a good leather skirt can make you feel.
