The leather skirt – an absolute must have of the moment
Despite outside temperatures, throughout summer we crossed paths with a less common item: the leather skirt. Actually, the entire 2014 summer season was sprinkled with spectacular leather clothes, whether we are talking about shorts, jackets, cropped tops or today’s star, leather skirts.
There is a true revolution going on in the midst of leather clothes, the last two years being dominated by proposals that are composed of at least one leather piece, if not a head-to-toe outfit.
Mini lengths, perforated textures, pastel colors, are all key details of the hottest leather skirts of the period.
If traditionally we are used to a mini or classic leather skirt, in the current season this piece is adapted to almost any design: midi, cloche, A-line with ruffles, peplum or different embroideries.
This ruffled mini design for example, will look perfect if you add a pair of Ogu Pendant Earrings in silver and the Seductive Python bag in green form Françoise Elizée.
In a top of the most popular versions the first position is held by skirts with a length that slightly exceeds the knees, while the top colors are white and nude. Choose loose tops in bustier, cropped styles, discreetly showing off your midriff. Don’t forget to properly accessorize your outfit, glitz it up with a metallic purse, like The Regal and add a touch of femininity with a delicate necklace and earrings. Choose the Erzulie set from Françoise Elizée to finish off your look.
If it seems too much for a hotter day, you still have the option of a mini skirt that is more comfortable, in terms of heat at least. This may come in the classic black version, combined with key accessories to highlight it. When in doubt go with silver. Try the Burst of Stars ring and the 5 Star Necklace from Françoise Elizée. Add a pair of Stars 5 Earrings Dropped and you’re good to go.
Nude blouses, minimalist sandals with high heels, cool clutches, like The Sophisticated from Françoise Elizée – are the right ingredients for an outfit in which the main focus is on a leather skirt. You can also add a Veve bracelet and a Single Star Ring, both from Françoise Elizée, to glam up your look.
Whichever you choose, the leather skirt is a real investment. You can wear this versatile piece all year round, especially if you choose a classic design. Black, nude, silver or gold, short, midi, curve hugging or flared, it will be a key piece in your wardrobe for a long period to come, easily adaptable to each season.
