It's back to school season, and all the new fall collections are hitting department stores, giving us an opportunity to hunt for great pieces to add to our fall wardrobes.
Feeling anxious to go shopping and put together the perfect fall/winter wardrobe? Well, you're not alone!
With the start of the school year and temperatures going down, we're ready to start swapping out our summer clothes, and as luck would have it, we’ve found THE perfect piece to shop for next season.
A Zara favourite
Spanish brand Zara recently unveiled their new collection. Out of their many fall pieces, one in particular, a short, black, draped faux leather skirt, caught our attention. Not only will it accentuate your curves, but its slightly high waist will make you look slimmer.
Price-wise, this skirt is going for just £24 and is available in sizes XS to XL. Extra points for catering to all body types!
How do you style a leather skirt?
Are you worried about the faux leather skirt looking too vulgar or having trouble matching it with any of the clothes you already have in your wardrobe? If you think leather is reserved for people who are into a more punk rock style, think again!
You can easily pair a leather skirt with more preppy pieces, such as a floral blouse or a denim shirt if you want to play with different fabrics. For a more classic but stylish look, you can wear it with a plain shirt and a blazer.
Leather skirts also go well with a pair of moccasins, sneakers, or high-heeled booties.
What not to do
One thing you should avoid when wearing a leather (or faux leather) piece is pairing it with a leopard print, which can look a little trashy.
Also, avoid wearing it with suede or vinyl platform pumps. You can check out the Zara skirt in the video above.
Yay or nay?
