A season must-have and an essential in any capsule wardrobe a leather skirt is one of the hottest fashion trends in 2023, We saw them sashay down the runway of Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant and Prada.

Not to worry it’s not just your high-end designer brands offering us a range of leather skirts to choose from, the high street has plenty to offer.

Leather skirts are as versatile as a pair of jeans. Whether you choose a midi or a mini here are the different ways to style your skirt from the office to the office party. And there is nothing we love more than clothes that can take us from day to evening, with little effort giving maximum effect.

For a casual daytime look, pair your leather skirt with a cosy sweater and trainers, throw a long coat over and your look is complete. This look is a chic and effortless outfit that is perfect for running errands or meeting friends for coffee.

Add a statement belt to cinch in your waist and add some extra style to the look.

To dress up your leather skirt for a night out, opt for a sleek blouse or a silk camisole, contrasting fabrics work well here, think the softness of cashmere against leather or the delicate silks against the hard durable leather look. Finish the look with an oversized blazer and a kitten heel or strappy sandal. You want to avoid bulky shoes with this look. This look is sophisticated and edgy and is the perfect outfit for a dinner date or night on the town.

Want to wear your leather skirt to the office? Easy, for a more professional look, pair your leather skirt with a tailored blazer and a crisp button-down shirt. Add some pointed-toe pumps or a ballerina flat and structured handbag to elevate the outfit. This creates a polished and stylish look that is perfect for the office or a business meeting.

When it comes to accessories, you can play around with different options depending on the occasion and your personal style. A bakerboy cap elevates this look to the top of the trends, while a statement belt or bold earrings can add a touch of glamour.

Leather skirts are everywhere on the high street. Some of our favourites can be purchased from ASOS, BOOHOO, River Island and Pretty Little Thing.

Overall the key to styling a leather skirt is to balance the edginess of the leather with softer and more feminine pieces. Experiment with different combinations and have fun creating unique and stylish outfits with your leather skirt.
