Styling a leather skirt

Styling a leather skirt

Can I tell you something? I have never ever in my life owned or worn a leather skirt. Not that I don’t like how they look. It is just that every time I have seen a leather skirt that I liked online, it would never look good on me. Point proven when I’d actually dare order the skirt. I’d try it on and see how unflattering it looked on me. And return it. Sad.

Until now.

When Tobi contacted us for a collaboration, I had a look on their website and saw this beautiful leather skirt. Love at fight. It was so far from my style or anything I had ever worn. You read my history with leather just above. And here I was panicking. How would I style it? What would I wear with it? Would it fit me? How would it fit behind? And at the front? I have always had a bit of a complex with my tummy. Don’t ask, there is no explanation here!

But I went for it. Because sometimes you need to dare, to leave your comfort zone.

Choose the lather skirt!

And it turns out it was a great decision! I had loved it online and loved it in real life. And even better, it fit! I like how the belt highlights my waist and adds some unusual details. I was afraid the skirt would look too much but absolutely no actually. Pairing it up with a striped tee-shirt makes the outfit more casual.

I want to be more daring with my outfits, which is why I styled the skirt with this faux fur jacket. It is quite light so it is going to be perfect mid-season when the weather gets a bit warmer. A pair of ankle boots to add some glitter to the outfit and blue earrings paired up with a watch to accessorize it.

You got it, I love that skirt!

    You do look amazing in that skirt!! I absolutely love it, I’ve never worn a leather skirt either, as I also think they don’t look good on me, think I’ll have to check this one out! Thanks for sharing 😊

    Hi, love the style of the skirt with the addition of the belt gives it that extra. Love the rest of your outfit especially your boots.

  3. January 21, 2018 / 8:05 pm

    your skirt looks lovely, i wish i had the confidence to wear things like that! x

  4. January 21, 2018 / 8:05 pm

    You look so good in a leather skirt, and I just love how you added a pop of colour in your earrings! I have never owned a leather skirt for the same reason – I worry that I won’t look good in it – but I also worry that the material will get all cracked because I’ll wear it so often haha.

  5. January 21, 2018 / 8:06 pm

    Such a lovely skirt, and I love how you’ve styled it! Plus, your earrings are amazing!

    That’s styled amazingly! I’ve been wanting a leather skirt and just cant find a way to style it!

  7. January 21, 2018 / 8:07 pm

    I love this whole outfit. It’s definitely worth being more daring with clothes because they always turn out better than you think. Love the jacket you’ve paired it with and of course those tassel earrings!! Such a great pop of colour. X

  8. January 21, 2018 / 8:10 pm

    You’ve styled that skirt so well! It looks so gorgeous on you! I’ve never owned a leather skirt before but I’m temped to get one, you’ve definitely given my some inspo.

    I need a new go to leather skirt for sure. My old black mini got a little too mini and had to retire from my closet to the goodwill. But this has def inspired me to get on the prowl for a new one!!

  10. January 21, 2018 / 8:16 pm

    This is such a nice leather skirt! I’m always afraid of leather skirts as well and have yet to buy one but you look amazing! I think I could do it now! Lovely post! X brynn

  12. January 21, 2018 / 8:18 pm

    I love this outfit! It all goes together so well! I think leather skirts are so cool and trendy. I don’t actually own one myself but I’d definitely be keen to invest in one if I see one I like. Great post!

  13. January 21, 2018 / 8:21 pm

    Ooh I love wearing a leather skirt! With a Bralet or Cami for a night out or with tights and a jumper for a more casual day look! Love the post ❤️

  14. January 21, 2018 / 8:22 pm

    The style of the skirt is gorgeous and you wear it so well! Faux leather is one of my favourite things to wear and I own a ridiculous amount of it, I usually style it a little more gothic with fishnets and chunky boots but I love the rock chic vibe it can add to any outfit!

    I love this skirt on you! The whole outfit put together is amazing. I’ve also never owned a leather skirt, although I found one in Zara last year that I loved, but decided not to get because I thought I’d find one similar for a cheaper price. That didn’t happen, unfortunately!

  19. January 21, 2018 / 8:41 pm

    I love this leather skirt, I’ve never worn one but there has been a few I’ve seen in store that I like, some quite similar to this one actually! I just love how versatile they are :)!

    Great post lovely!

    You look so good! I have never purchased a leather skirt because I’m about 100% sure I would look horrendous in one, but your outfit was lovely. They always look so easy to dress up or dress down!

    Oh wow, this skirt is lovely! I actually quite like leather but I don’t own that many skirts lol until last month when I ordered two I really thought had a nice look. I’m sorry I didn’t see this one from Tobi…lovely boots too btw. ❤️

    Love the style of the skirt and it suits you perfectly! Ordering something online it’s always a gamble if it will look as nice IRL. But luckily for you this time it did! I’m also head-over-heals with those earings. A true statement piece! 😉

    You look great in this outfit! And I love wearing leather, I have a pretty monochrome wardrobe so differing textures make an outfit look more interesting. I personally like mine with a plain black or striped top that doesn’t upstage the skirt x

    You are lookin stunning in this skirt and love your overall style. I rarely wear skirts and dresses. But I got one faux leather pants which I love. Great post loved the beautiful pictures. 🙂

  31. January 22, 2018 / 1:00 pm

    You look amazing and your whole outfit looks great, it does fit you perfectly and suits you.

  32. January 22, 2018 / 1:43 pm

    This is such a pretty outfit and you look fantastic. I don’t wear many skirts anymore. I love your earrings! They just pop.

  33. January 22, 2018 / 2:46 pm

    I wish I could pull this off! I feel like I look so weird in skirts haha! You are rocking it!

  34. January 22, 2018 / 2:53 pm

    well you can be sure this skirt looks good on you. no need to worry anymore.

  35. January 22, 2018 / 3:51 pm

    Leather isn’t something that I like on myself. I feel like I’m trying too hard when I put anything on that’s made of leather. With that being said, it looks great on you! I love how you styled it.

  36. January 22, 2018 / 5:03 pm

    Yess I am so glad you went for it!! I wear a leather skirt sometimes when I go out and find it so easy to pair with things for either a casual or dressy look! I love this one on you, it looks fabulous!

    This outfit looks amazing on you! I’ve only tried on a leather skirt once, and – much like you – it just didn’t suit me at all. I kinda gave up after that. But this post gave me hope that maybe one day I’ll find the perfect leather skirt after all. 🙂

    This outfit is so simple but it’s so nice! I really need to get my hands on a leather skirt I think!

  43. January 22, 2018 / 5:21 pm

    You look great. Leather is definitely something I son’t wear that often. Only leather piece I own is my leather jacket. I’m not really into that kind of skirts. I don’t feel comfortable in them. x

    Hi Corinne!

    Anything in black leather is pretty much a staple in my wardrobe, so it’s sufficient to say I love me a leather skirt! I love this one’s belt. It reminds me of all the leather biker jackets, with the same belt detail, that seem to be all the rage at the moment! I love that this trend has been translated into a skirt 😀

    Love how you accessorized this skirt!! I have a leather skirt in my closet that I have worn only once. It’s so daring and I could never figure what to pair it with. I love this outfit inspiration!! 🙂

  48. January 22, 2018 / 7:03 pm

    You picked a great outfit to show off the skirt. I love your statement style with the coat and the earrings.

  52. January 23, 2018 / 12:51 am

    I think this outfit suits you well! I love it! I would pair a cream or ivory collared shirt with a black leather skirt then wear standout accessories. 🙂

    I think you look fabulous Corrine and it is great that Tobi introduced you to the marvel that is the mini faux leather skirt! I wear vegan fabrics as I am cruelty free and I too love my skirts, they look fabulous with boots and tights! I love how you have paired yours with those gorgeous blue earrings. Off to H&M I go!

  81. January 24, 2018 / 6:47 pm

    You look great!! I love how you styled everything and the skirt is definitely a statement piece!

  82. January 24, 2018 / 7:35 pm

    I’ve always loved everything leather! This skirt is so chic and you pull it off amazingly well! Love your styling it with a simple tee! Focus goes on the skirt that way, I suppose! 🙂

  83. January 25, 2018 / 12:29 am

    This leather skirt is super cute, and I think you styled it perfectly! The shag coat and the bag really elevates the look, and the booties add a nice cool vibe!

    I’ve always had issues with styling leather anything. I like the fur mix. It looks comfortable.

  88. February 3, 2018 / 2:24 pm

    I’ve been meaning to get my hands on a leather skirt for the longest of time! New Look in the UK has a lovely mustard coloured one but I feel like my first one should be a black staple piece! I love how you’ve styled yours!
