Closet Strategy: Leather Skirt

I have been obsessed with this skirt since the day I got it! It's been a closet staple for the past month and I'm not ready to give it quite yet, despite the cold weather telling me it's time to do so.
Forever 21 leather skater skirt
Here are my day to night looks:

For Day
I love mixing elements and textures so this was the first outfit that came to mind when I thought of a daytime outfit centered around my leather skirt: Silk and leather? Sign me up! I also added my scarf to my bag for a splash of color. This is the perfect outfit for a coffee date or shopping trip.






Top: Forever 21 blouse
Accessories: vintage Prada bag, vintage pearl earrings, H&M silk scarf
Shoes: Zara pumps

For Night
Now granted this isn't the most dramatic night look but it's one I wore to the movies last week with my friend to watch 12 Years a Slave (if you guys haven't seen it, go watch it now - it's amazing!) I love how the pink pops against the black and white and the feminine bow details balances the edginess of the outfit. 





Top: Stradivarius blouse, Forever 21 cardigan
Accessories: Bershka bag, Lilly Pulitzer belt, H&M earrings
Shoes: Zara pumps

So what do you guys think? Aren't leather skirts the best? Also, more work-themed outfits to come next week so stay tuned guys!

  24. I really like these kind of posts, I love seeing how one item can be used in different outfits! I adore both of them, but my favorite must be the second one as I like how the beautifully colored blouse looks against the leather skirt!
    You did a great job in styling, sweetie! :)

  41. I think you should keep that skirt. It's so cute and it's a great basic. And when it gets colder you can use it with warmer and darker tights :p
