Let’s be honest, I know, you know I’m obsessed with this pleated leather skirt. You might even be sick of seeing it? But when I find something that I love THIS much, I just can’t help but shout it from the rooftops and urge you to try it for yourself. I saw it last month hanging in the store and though “hmm that’s really cute and I love that take on a leather skirt for Fall.” Then I looked at the $128 price tag and walked away thinking that it was more of a novelty piece than an everyday piece (like I’d want it to be for that price). It was one of those things that I kept thinking about and dreaming of ways to style, so I promptly went back to the store and grabbed it in my size.
I can’t even tell you how functional it’s been for me in 3 short weeks. I wore it non-stop in NYC and never felt like I had the same outfit on because it can go so many ways. I’ve worn it preppy, dressy, edgy, casual…you name it! Which brings me to a great point….I’ve already worn it 6 (yes, SIX) times, which means my cost per wear is already down to $20 per wear…and that’s something I can totally be happy about.
I love that it merges the workwear trend with the sporty/athletic trend and still looks polished. Here’s how I’ve styled mine:
Look One: Felt Hat | Plaid Button Down | Prada Sunnies | Booties | Pleated Leather Skirt | Clutch
Look Two: Denim Jacket | Similar Suede Top | Similar (FAB!) Necklace | Pleated Leather Skirt | Similar Booties
Look Three: Bow Top | Clutch | Red Lace Up Flats | Pleated Leather Skrit
Look Four: Camo Tee (amazing deal!) | Similar Booties | Sunnies | Pleated Leather Skirt | Similar Statement Necklace
Look Five: Plaid Button Up | Bag | Pleated Leather Skirt | Lace Up Flats | Sunnies
Look Six: Blue Swing Tank | Pleated Leather Skirt
So what do you think, functional right?! I plan to wear it through the winter with cardigans, denim jackets, varsity jackets, v neck sweaters, tights, boots….really there are just so many ways!
