Until recently (like, last fall), there was a certain stigma around leather skirts. Whether it was the vague '80s vibe or the aging-biker-babe connotations, something just wasn't quite right about zipping into a second-skin skirt. But, everything changed when a bevy of designers got their hands on reams of supple leather and embraced a whole new crop of silhouettes.
Now, you can have your pick among A-line, pencil, pleated, flare, and midi styles, in as many colors (and prints!) as you can dream up. (And, yes — there are plenty of faux options, too.) Ahead, the new leather skirts we're craving — and can actually pull off.
