Leather Skirts: Five Reasons We’re Obsessed With Them

Got a leather skirt in your wardrobe? if not, it’s time to hit the high street because this fashion essential is one of the biggest transeasonal trends right now. Whether you opt for A-line, pleated, pencil or mini, the leather (or pleather if you’re feeling the pinch) skirt is adored by celebs and the LOOK team alike.

Just check out the photo above for proof that we’re hooked on the leather skirt fashion trend. Here’s five reasons why:

Leda Ross, Freelance Stylist: “My Zara skirt, although it looks like leather is more of a stretchy nylon. Its one of my fave skirts and works well dressed down with a tee or glamed up at night with a court.”

Helen Francis, Office Manager: “I was never really sure I was a leather skirt kind of girl but then found this one, braved the little beauty and the rest is history – I’m getting compliments a-plenty”.

Hannah Gale, Online Assistant: “My favourite thing about them is that they go with everything. Knitwear, smart shirts, jersey tops – the ultimate wardrobe multi-tasker.”

Rachel Story, Freelance Fashion Assistant:”I love the versatility of a leather skirt – whether it’s with a cosy jumper (in my case a hot pink Acne one) or pepped up for an evening out, they always look great. It’s a wardrobe failsafe, which I guess is why we all reached for ours this morning!”

Hannah Eichler, Acting Junior Fashion Stylist: “I’ll be going preppy with my leather skirt this season, and teaming it with brogues, button up shirts and varsity t-shirts.”
