Leather Bound Chic



So I still can't get enough of Leather/PU skirts, weather you prefer the real thing or like the look without having to wear leather (vegan etc). Everyone can now get this look easy, I think if you do go for leather than vintage is always great as  there is a sea of leather skirts from the 80s and is great for any of you Eco girls. 


If you don't do vintage than there are lots of choices on the high street, if you don't do leather there are heaps of leather look skirts that are vegan friendly (also friendly to non vegan's). So you may recall me being featured at style clone, in a leather skirt I tried on in Topshop you can now get this skirt in black if you were after it. I recently got a PU leather look dress which I am going to layer to look like a skirt, as I have not found my perfect leather skirt (my waist goes in and my bum sticks right out) so still hunting one down. So anyway here is some inspiration for the look. I did have a look for plus size leather skirts, but it seems no one does them (which is pants)as I think this look is amazing on a full figure, pencil skirt and kitten heels me thinks so for all the plus size beauty's head to EBay as they have some.













Would you ever try this look?

So here is just a little something I put together, but I think everyone wears this look differently. I think some times this can be a hard look to get right, even above some looks are better than others. I think leather can have may looks and it depends on the cut ...like 60s mod, or 80s power chic, to 90s grunge. So if you do try it you have so many ways to wear it, dress it down with a tee and trainers or glam it up with a blouse and heels. The no no with leather skirts is going to OTT, when you look like least fashion more hooker. Double leather should not be attempted unless you are uber stylish and can make a sack look good. This look is sexy without it becoming tarty ... so leave your feathered boa at home.

  4. It's funny you post about this because I just saw a skirt similar to the 1st picture at the store the other day and I looked at it for a few minutes thinking "Mmm maybe I should try it on?". But I didn't... I don't see it fitting in my wardrobe with the rest of my stuff.

    I'm sure you could pull it off though! :)

  6. I really like the looks you put together, especially the one with the blue skirt: super cute. And it's strange, I never thought this look would be me, but the fitted above the knee skirst are, I agree, really classy. I think I'd have to do fake leather for something so decadent and unnecessary though!

  11. I'm not a huge fan of the skirts, but I have some shorts which I am in love with. I think you can dress them up & down really easily. My fav at the moment is with tights & big chunky knits-love it
    Great post

  14. I love the look especially on Drew Barrymore, Beyonce and Gwenyth Paltrow. Unfortunately I fall in that plus sized category and most designers think we should be stuck in mom jeans and kitty cat sweatshirts (nope im not bitter...lol). Anyway it is very cute and there are so many great pictures.

  15. This post makes me want to wear my leather pencil skirt to work tommorow! I'm not crazy about it though its vintage but doesn't fit perfectly, I've been debating taking sissors to it and turning it into a high waisted mini.
