One of fall’s hottest trends is the leather skirt. Well technically most of those you see in stores are faux leather, but who knows the difference?! Investing in a good leather skirt is well worth it- they are a wardrobe staple that can be paired with just about any top, and they hopefully won’t be going out of style anytime soon.
For a ladylike look, try a pleated or A-line version with a pretty blouse. For a more rocker look, pair the skirt with zip-up booties and a metallic tee. If you think you can’t wear this style- think again! Women of any age and body type can make the leather skirt look wearable, you just need to get the cut and color that’s right for you. A-line silhouettes look great on curvier girls, mini skirts are great for short girls who want to elongate their legs, and the pleated skirts add curves for thinner figures. Feeling bold? Try a colored skirt- neutrals such as browns and grays are a flattering alternative to black.
Do you wear a leather skirt? What are your tricks for making them wearable?

I definitely need to get my hands on a leather skirt, I’ve been searching for the perfect one! Love the black pleated and burgundy ones!
You should try one, it would look great on you!
The pleated ones are cute, though I’m not sure the leather trend is for me. They don’t seem like they’d be very comfortable, but maybe I need to give them a shot!
The inside usually isn’t leather (and the outside is usually faux-leather, unless you want to shell out hundreds of dollars) so they aren’t as bad as you’d think. But then again, it depends which one you try on!
What great options, I love the A-Line one’s!
I’m obsessed with leather right now. Really loving the bold colored skirts!
I’ve never really considered a leather skirt before, but those bright ones may just be calling my name…
You should definitely try one Erica!

I am loving leather skirts! The A-line skirt in caramel is my favorite (but I love them all)!

I love the Bordeaux and the peplum and quilted ones..I REALLY want that peplum one!
i hadn’t even thought of leather and pleated, but it’s such a great combo! takes the edge off a bit, but it’s still perfect for fall into winter weather!
The pleated ones are my favorite I think!

I’ve got to admit that I am a little intimidated by leather skirts! I really love how they look on other people, so maybe it’s time I just go try one on!
You should try one! They make more girly versions (like a pleated one) and just pair it with a cute sweater!
I LOVE leather skirts, I literally have to force myself to resist every time I’m in the store. I just actually did a post wearing one on my blog! Would love your thoughts.

I’ve been eyeing a faux leather pencil skirt for the longest time! I’m on the fence on whether or not I can wear it to work but I really love that this is a trend I’m seeing too 🙂
Yes, that is a good topic to bring up! I think it really depends on your work dress code.

There was a pencil skirt at The Limited that had a faux leather panel on it, I really wish I would have purchased it because I’m pretty sure its gone now. But these are great options too!
I love that first bordeaux skirt you linked – the one from H&M. Plus, it’s affordable! 😉
Exactly! That’s why I love H&M
I am all for (faux) leather skirts. The burgundy picks are my favorite!

Rachel, I take them ALL hahahaha, so in love with faux leather skirts, I don’t rally wanna spent the money on real leather while there are so many faux ones out. I have one pleated leather skirt which I just wore 2 posts ago :-). I need to get my hands on that conganc coloured A LIne skirt the first, soooooooooooo freakin pretty.
Same here- I’d rather buy a cheap fake one than an expensive real one!
