It is no shock that once again the little black leather skirt is the staple must have for this autumn and winter season.
You can’t help but fall head over heels for this trendy yet versatile piece. A black little skirt works with such a variety of looks; from grunge, to preppy, to sports luxe to glam!
I found this adorable black fitted imitation leather mini in H and M a few months ago, I knew right away that it would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe. Although the skirt is made from faux leather material rather than genuine leather I do not think it should be underestimated. It look and feels like a genuine leather skirt but there is one key difference…it is at half the cost! What attracted me to this little mini was not simply this but also the flattering fit and charming decorative silver zips at the front, giving it a slight glam grunge look.
For this look I decided to take inspiration from the ever so stylish IT girl Alexa Chung, who has been seen on a number of occasions rocking a mini black leather number. To reflect a contrast in texture I adopted to pair the smoothness of the leather with a light pink fluffy jumper from New Look. I decided to give the outfit a more ‘off duty’ look, as I wanted it to be able to worn in the day, so I wore a black Topshop ankle boots. To finish off the look and add a touch of glamour I wore pillar box red shade lipstick by Barry M.
