So one day, Leaf 1 was in a meeting and this lady walked into the meeting wearing leather skirt. Leaf 1 gasped because 1) She was looking fierce and foxy (at work?) and 2) She was looking good! Apparently, they did a survey on this topic four years ago! 76 participants voted YES (work appropriate) and 67 participants voted NO.
Both Leaf 1 and Leaf 2 love anything that can be worn for multiple occasions, and that includes leather skirts! Leather skirts can be worn to a happy hour, to a bachelorette party (guilty!), to a special date, and to a girls’ night out! Leaf 1 purchased the leather skirt a few months ago, and she has put it to good use! But what about wearing the faux leather skirt to work? If you’re interested in giving this look a try, here are some tips:
- A-line vs. Pencil Leather Skirts: If you’ve never worn a leather skirt to work before, then try the A-line leather skirt first. The A-line shape will create the casual and feminine look, rather than the tough/sleek feel of the leather. Once you’re comfortable strutting the A-line leather skirt around the office, then move on to the pencil leather skirt. Whether A-line and/or pencil leather skirts, make sure the length is appropriate for work!
- Picking the right top to go with the leather skirt is probably the key to balance the sleek look. Pair the skirt with a top that is feminine without it being racy or raunchy. A button-up shirt is a great option! Denim button-up shirt will make the look so chic and polished.
- Complete the look with a flowy /moderately oversized cardigan or blazer. If the look (skirt + top) is simple and clean, pair it with a fun cardigan/blazer. In this case, Leaf 1 paired her outfit with a bomber jacket to welcome Spring. Adding the cardigan/blazer will complete the look at work. You can easily take the cardigan/blazer off once you’re at a happy hour (after work) with your co-workers.
