One of the things I have spent the longest time tracking down is a high waisted leather skirt. After a bit of searching, including an ASOS mini that just wasn’t right, and one purchase which turned out to be a touch big for me (although thankfully a perfect fit for my mother), I managed to find it. And of course, it’s vintage. So no wonder I had a hard time.
And of course, like with most new purchases, I spent little time waiting to wear it. I’m of the opinion that a leather skirt, dependent on the style, works in most social situations, and didn’t think twice throwing it on this morning to wear to work. Pared down with a loose cotton tee, a tailored blazer, and my shoe of choice – a pair of velvet kitty flats, there’s little about my outfit that screams sexy; a word that is generally synonymous with the leather skirt. Other pared down ways I plan to wear it is with an oversized jumper, or a slightly loose jumper with a collared shirt underneath with both flat and heeled boots, and with loose tanks and heeled sandals on days where the weather is relatively mild. What are your thoughts on the leather skirt; too sexy for work?
