HOW TO: WEAR A LEATHER SKIRT IN SPRING

15.04.16

Often thought of as a luxe winter staple, there’s little reason not to take your leather skirt through to spring. From classic black to lighter, neutral hues, make this wardrobe hero a year-round go-to by following our SS16 styling directive

THE EVENING LOOK

When it comes to wearing a leather skirt, an evening look is perhaps the most classic of styling options as it works year-round without much alteration. A simple silk blouse and strappy heels will emphasise the luxe sensibility of the leather and create a relatively simple canvas should you wish to add decorative jewellery or striking make-up to your look. Choose a shirt in a fresh hue (white is polished whilst blue or pink will add a point of interest) to avoid looking too wintery.

THE WEEKEND LOOK

It’s easy to give a leather skirt daytime relevance when it comes in a rich burgundy hue like that of the Leonie. Teamed with a simple jersey T-shirt, it will strike the balance between pared-back and considered, working for both casual and more dressed-up affairs depending on the accessories that you choose to pair it with. We suggest tan ankle boots or cut-away flats for day, with the addition of a lightweight mac on days when the weather looks temperamental.

THE TREND-LED LOOK

Tan suede is a tried and tested winner for spring and so there’s nothing more appropriate to switch your go-to black leather skirt for than an alternative in this equally luxe fabrication. Fresh in appearance and completely fashion-focussed when cut to a structured A-line silhouette, it’s easy to style and will lend your look a stand-out edge. Try the classic combination of white and navy stripes and add suede open-toe heels to bring it firmly into warm-weather territory.
