5 ways to wear a leather skirt

Versatile, luxe and buttery soft, a leather skirt is a key wardrobe item that will carry you stylishly through most months of the year. A leather skirt works effortlessly with knitwear and boots for winter or a t-shirt and sneakers in spring. Leather skirts are also available in a variety of styles so whether you love a thigh skimming mini or prefer the sleek form of a fitted midi skirt, you’re sure to find one in leather. Here, we’ll show you how to create a variety of cool leather skirt outfits that you can wear and adapt to suit the weather and the occasion.

Layer up in one colour

Create a chic monochromatic leather skirt outfit by layering pieces in different textures. Take a fitted turtleneck knit jumper layered underneath a smooth oversized blazer. Then add a pair of black opaque stockings and shiny black boots with a mid or high heel to elongate your legs. Finish off with statement jewellery like a chunky link necklace. If you like a pop of colour, incorporate an accessory or bag in a brilliant hue to standout against the black. Then all that’s left to do is head out to enjoy dinner or drinks, or both!

Create a corporate look

For a work appropriate leather skirt outfit, opt for one that’s mid-length with a high waist to create a shapely, yet clean silhouette. While a black leather skirt is a fail-safe option, a leather skirt in tan or muted colour are also great alternatives as they’re still easy to style and will work with most items you already own. Pair your leather skirt with a white shirt tucked in, sleek pump heels and a stylish watch for a sophisticated work look. For extra warmth, simply add a cami under your shirt and a coat or blazer.

Pair with a puffer jacket

Take a classic leather mini skirt and t-shirt combo and give it a fashion-forward athleisure aesthetic by simply donning a longline puffer jacket on top. Puffer jackets are a huge trend for winter 2022 and wearing it in unexpected ways makes this must-have item even more covetable. For best results, create this look with items in neutral tones. Choose your preferred footwear – whether it be combat boots or statement platform sneakers - and throw on a cap to top things off.

Style with tonal pieces

If you’re after a leather skirt for winter, a gorgeous long, a-line cut is hard to beat. Create a sophisticated winter perfect ensemble with your leather skirt by styling it with cosy pieces in similar tones. Think, a cosy knit and a longline coat matched with a great pair of ankle boots. Complete this look with a standout accessory, whether it be a great print scarf or statement bag and swap stockings for socks for a cute touch.

Dress it down with denim

A cute black leather mini skirt is a classic choice and ideal for dressing up or down. Step out in a cool, casual weekend look by styling your leather mini skirt with a denim jacket layered over a fitted top or knit jumper depending on the temperature. Slide your feet into a pair of classic Converse or your favourite sneakers and arm yourself with a casual tote to carry your essentials and any spur-of-the-moment purchases. Finish off your look with a few key accessories, like a pair of retro sunglasses or a cool cap to tame ‘just rolled out of bed’ hair.
