Aside from a crisp, white button-down and a pair of curve-hugging denim, there are but a few other pieces vital to a woman’s wardrobe. Enter the leather skirt. Among the edgiest of garments, a leather skirt is as versatile as a plain, white tee and exponentially more chic, to boot. From flirty pleated versions to the sophisticated leather pencil skirt, this stylish little piece is ideal for creating an enviable outfit that’s equal parts sophisticated but dangerous. When sporting a luxe leather skirt, don’t skimp on the attitude. It’s as imperative to the look as the leather itself.

When it’s a lady-like, classic look you crave, opt for simple pieces like a crew neck T-shirt or a button-down blouse to complement an edgy leather skirt. Basic pieces in neutral shades like black, white and beige do wonders for adding sophistication to tough, leather pieces. A black or white T-shirt tucked into a leather skirt can be made instantly more chic when accompanied by a ruby red lip, gold accessories and a pair of simple but impactful black pumps. Effortlessly chic with just the right amount of sassiness, this look is ideal for anything from the office to the club on a Saturday night.

A leather pencil skirt can definitely read sophisticated but, make no mistake, this piece is capable of packing a seriously edgy punch. Take the look for a walk on the wild side by pairing it with a classy crop to showcase just a hint of skin. Pair with basic black for a sexy but completely chic ensemble appropriate for a ton of occasions. Printed crop tops are just as adorable for a night out with the girls or date night with the beau. A swipe of rich lip color and a pair of minimalist heels seals the deal on this fierce look to perfection.

Leather skirts are fabulous options for putting a glam spin on basic pieces, but they can be taken for a rock n’ roll spin just as quickly. Don’t be afraid to go laid-back with the look. Tuck a vintage rock n’ roll T-shirt into your pencil skirt and rock a funky pair of heels to showcase a playful side. Classic aviator shades, a colorful clutch and patent leather pumps in a pointy-toed silhouette create an unexpected but nonetheless stylish outfit to take you through the entire year looking every bit the fearless fashionista you are.
