Wearing a leather skirt makes you instantly cool. First of all, it takes a certain type of confidence to pull it off. Second, when you’re wearing a really great leather piece, you don’t need to pair much else with it. In fact, the simpler the better. A leather skirt is unfussy, but it can also look like a million bucks.
This Leather Wrap Midi Skirt from Madewell caught my eye right away. It’s a bit of an unusual shape for a leather skirt (we’ve been holding steady with the mini for a while now). I love that it looks polished but also casually draped. The skirt sits right at the natural waist and follows a slim silhouette to just below the knees.
While the price tag might be a little alarming at first, like a classic leather jacket, this is the type of piece you’ll hold onto for years. And if you take care of it properly, the leather will just get better, and more buttery, over time.
Again, a skirt like this needs only a simple top, maybe your favourite striped T-shirt right now and a fitted turtleneck when it’s cold. Midi-length skirts can be tricky to wear but pairing it with a pair of booties that have a slight heel with help elongate the legs.
The Leather Wrap Midi Skirt is $450 at Madewell.
