Tuesday Treats – Leather Pencil Skirts

I have noticed plenty of leather skirts on the high street for autumn and winter. I particularly love the pencil skirts as they can be worn with a t shirt for a rock inspired look or a blouse for a more feminine seventies inspired ladylike look.

The longer length means that they are more classy than trashy but I would also wear these skirts with high cut and slightly loose tops tucked in to balance the look out.  They are also great for the evening with a vest top or camisole.

If you fancy treating yourself to a leather skirt, it is well worth considering a second hand or vintage one. Leather is one of the few materials that can actually improve with age, so you can get yourself a beautiful and on trend piece of clothing and also save yourself a few pennies or pounds. Here are some that I have found.Penny Dreadful Vintage Leather skirt

How would you wear a leather skirt this autumn? they would look great with a blouse from www.style-is.co.uk.

  1. Utterly obsessed with leather skirts, I’ve purchased one and featured two more in recent weeks on my blog so this post really got my attention! Gorgeous finds I love how you show that leather can be completely classy as well as hot 🙂

    At the moment I’m teaming my leather skirt with a slightly oversized jumper (tucked in) black tights + heeled ankle booties. I’ve also teamed it with a silk t-shirt and shrug for a night out 🙂

  2. Although I really like the look of this trend, I just don’t think I can pull it off for myself! I’ve never felt like I could really wear leather for whatever reason!

  3. I love leather and leather skirts! While I am obsessed with leather jackets, I have been so exctited and inspired by the leather skirts. They are so fun! I love how many different ways you can wear them and make them look like SO many different styles! You can do rocker, chic, glamorous, retro, whatever you want! It’s a great piece that doesn’t seem to have a lot of versatility on the surface, but it really does!

    Congratulations on the move over to wordpress! It’s quite exhilirating to get a new layout and site up and running!! It looks great!

  4. Ooh thank you for including me! I actually bought that skirt hoping it would fit me, but it was much too small so into the shop it had to go. I haven’t yet found a leather skirt that was just right on me, but I keep searching x

  5. Hiya Ceri,
    At the moment I’m all about leather shorts. When I was visiting my folks a little while ago I found a pair that I bought in the Sisley sale back in 1996. I never in a million years thought that I’d fit into them but I actually still do. I prefer the shorts because they are not as constrictive as a leather pencil skirt…I once tried bowling wearing one of those…bad move to say the least…ended up with a rip all the way up to the…you know what 🙁
    Great blog my dear, added to faves.
