Pop quiz: What's often duplicated (but never repeated), has been mastered by the Italians, and is currently one of fall's hottest trends? If leather was your guess, then you get a stylish gold star. But know this: It's not reserved for jackets alone, anymore. This haute hide (or its faux counterpart) absolutely shines in the form of a sexy skirt—and yes, you can pull it off.
To prove it, we've put together three versatile ensembles using one fierce-yet-classy leather skirt. Paired with a crisp white oxford shirt, you're office appropriate, but slip on a silky sleeveless blouse and you're ready for a night out on the town. And to complement the crisp temps, we promise your cozy sweater never looked hotter than it will against this little leather number. To be clear, you'll turn a few heads in any of these looks—but there's nothing bad about looking this good.
Leather at work? You betcha! Simply tame down the sexiness (a bit) with a classic, white, oxford button-down shirt, fitted blazer, and oversized bag, and you’re office appropriate. For your feet, knee boots show off your stylish side while still being conservative enough for the boardroom.
