As a surprise to no one, we’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of fall for many reasons: the food, the foliage, the perfectly crisp weather. But, because we’re always honest over here, we’re mainly anticipating the arrival of fall fashion.
As soon as the humidity leaves the air I can’t help but reach for a leather skirt. In fact, my first fashion post for Bitches Who Brunch happened to be a pencil leather skirt. What can I say? I consider a good leather skirt a seasonal staple because it’s edgy yet feminine.
The combination of cashmere and leather embodies comfort and luxury with an edge. I paired a simple v-neck sweater with a fun back detail to offset the bold statement of a leather mini skirt. In particular, I was drawn to the asymmetrical hem of this leather skirt. It’s also not skin tight, which can easily turn the outfit into a whole different look.
Lately, I’ve been really drawn to simple closet staples with interesting details, like this sweater with a corset lace back. It’s classic yet intriguing with this unexpected detail.
With bold pieces like a leather skirt, I tend to keep the rest of my outfit understated and neutral. I chose gray suede Joie booties, my go-to fall shoe, with a gray See by Chloe small cross body purse. The accessories compliment the look without taking away from the bold detail of the sweater and the skirt.
