Autumn Weather Leather


When I was on the hunt for a real leather skirt the place that instantly came to mind was AllSaints. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of faux leather from the likes of H&M and New Look, but my wardrobe was craving a little more ‘realness’ instead of ‘plasticy’ PVC. The leather creates an edge to the sophisticated pencil skirt; biker meets high society meets gothic glamour.

I Am Wearing
Skirt – Allsaints, Top – Topshop,
Bag – Asos, Heels – River Island,
Lipstick – MAC Cosmetics (in Dare You),
Nail Colour – Nails Inc (in Cambridge Terrace)

Leather can so often be a plain, block piece of material in boring browns and blacks, but I prefer details. Buckles, zips or simply just a different shape or cut make it so much more interesting and appealing.


With the split on the side and the bold zip detail I decided to wear it with a silky strappy top in a pale grey with silver accessories. Let the skirt do the talking!


Autumn is the time to wear this look before it gets too cold and the tights get pulled out from the back of our drawers! You could still wear this outfit with tights. However with the split on the side it is made to wear with bare legs. 


I also found some similar options that won’t break the bank as much herehere and here.
