Some time ago the leather skirts stopped hiding among the clothing items for everyone and for a special occasion, moved in such as a surprising category of casual clothing. Yes, it is – the leather skirt now can be worn as a casual wear, which is quite clearly shown at the pictures of skirts from the runway Fall/Winter 2017-2018.
Leather skirts this season beat all previous records of popularity. One gets the feeling that designers are pushed towards the materials from which they made skirts before, and replaced by a large number of faux leather.
So what are the main trends in fashionable leather skirts that we saw in season fall-winter 2016-2017.
Leather pencil skirt
The classic pencil skirt of adjacent silhouette, simple and clean cut, without significant decorative elements perfectly combined with leather.
Short leather skirts
Mini skirt from the faux leather running the show as a basic garment for parties. You do not have to choose a skirt with sequins, metallic, or hard cut, because even a simple black faux leather skirt, combined with stylish youth top will be enough for a daring outfit.
At the same time. Minimalistic options of tops, blouses, and turtlenecks will be quite appropriate to be worn with leather mini skirts, which sometimes requires stylistic balance.
Black skirt leather
Despite the fact that many people repeat like a mantra that some newfangled color – this is the “new black”, let’s be honest – there is hardly a shade which will fully be able to replace it. Black leather skirt is a basic which, if you love leather details, will never be superfluous in your wardrobe, because you will always be able to find a worthy “partner”.
A-line leather skirts
We say ‘A-line skirt” and we mean short mini. With leather models fall-winter 2016-2017 no exceptions there. You can choose a simple skirt of minimalist design, black and bright, such as green, red, blue, and leather skirt with soft pleating, buttons or zipper front.
What to wear with leather skirt
To create a truly harmonious fashion look you need to combine a leather skirt with a top which has a directly opposite design. The leather can be rough and aggressive, so the best option are chiffon blouse, simple white shirt, cotton top with print or knitwear. If you already bought the leather skirt, it will look perfect paired with long knitted cardigan or oversized knitted sweater.
Among the hottest trends of 2016-2017 for combining with a leather skirt are Victorian style blouses and casual or sporty tops with stripes and color-block effect.
