OOTD- Faux Leather Skirt

#OOTD-Faux Leather//GenPink

This past fall I was on a serious hunt for the perfect leather skirt. I was loving all the outfits I was seeing everywhere with a leather skirt so naturally I had to have one. However, finding THE perfect leather skirt proved a bit more difficult than I originally thought, or maybe I’m just picky. Either way, I had a few requirements that I needed met by my new potential leather skirt. Like, it could not be too short. I’m a classy lady, not a corner lady. Also, I wanted the leather to look as close to real as I could get while still paying faux prices. So, after some extensive online searching I finally came across one that met all my requirements from shopbob.com. I got it and it was PERFECT. Had to pat myself on the back a little for that one.

The next phase is styling my new wardrobe addition. I was super excited to play around with outfits all winter long and here are a few combinations I came up with:

A J.Crew boyfriend button down paired with the leather skirt went well together. I tried the other the colar necklace trick & liked the statement it made with this look.

A J.Crew chunky boyfriend sweater slightly tucked in with the leather skirt made this a perfect casual look.

With summer quickly approaching, wearing a non-breathable material does not sound overly appealing. That being said, spring has been a great time to wear the skirt and I transitioned it from winter to spring using a few trends I have recently admired from the runways.

The first look is a monochromatic look with a pop of color in the heel. Pair a sheer black blouse with the black leather plus a heel of just about any color will hopefully make you feel as sassy as I felt wearing this outfit. Shirt was from , skirt was from shopbob.com but here is a similar version (that I approve. You know I’m picky about it!) and the heels are Steve Madden.

The heels.

Since I can’t have Manolo Blahniks, I’ll just collect every color in this more approachable Steve Madden version.

I have been on the hunt for a floral-print blouse of some sort to wear with my leather skirt this spring but have not been fruitful yet. Anyone have suggestions on a good place to find floral blouses, let me know. I have not found anything that has caught my attention but think the floral, leather skirt look is amazing as well.

This is just an awesome heel with the fur on the front! Really add some subtle texture to your monochrome look.
