Last season we were obsessed with leather shorts, but this fall and winter we only have eyes for the season's hottest new essential: the little hot leather skirt. Whether you opt for a pleated piece, a simple A-line style, or a killer faux option, we swear it's the hottest new winter must-have that will undoubtedly add a bit of luxury into your wardrobe rotation. We're particularly fond of a short leather skirt mixed with patterned and brightly hued tights, and also love it paired a button-up blouse, for work or play. And since us Los Angelenos are in for a somewhat mild winter, this is a wise investment because you can wear well into the spring season. So check out our stylish second skin selections and make sure you don't miss out because the luxe leather skirt is the smartest dressing staple a women should be wearing all fall long.
