While the leather skirt may have previously been viewed as a bit punk and risqué, it has recently become a must-have wardrobe staple. Styles range from ladylike full skirts to streamlined minis. While leather skirts are on the pricier side, you can always find faux leather alternatives. Take inspiration from a few new season leather skirts below.

Tan leather makes a great alternative to the more common black leather skirts around. I find that tan colours are more versatile when it comes to creating daytime looks. This Topshop skirt has an A-line design, is fully lined, and has a side zip fastening. Pair this skirt with loose-fitting blouses and ballet flats for a quirky take on prep-style dressing.

The pleat detailing on this skirt creates a nice, full silhouette. As a result of the pleating, the leather has a slight crinkled effect. This skirt has a fitted waist, side-slit pockets, and a concealed zip fastening at the back. For a youthful take on the trend, pair this skirt with a slinky tank top, slouchy blazer, and chunky ankle boots.

The metallic sequin inserts on this leather skirt give it a definitive disco edge. It can be an ingenious way of injecting some glitz into a daytime look, or serve as a party perfect skirt. It has a side zip closure and is fully lined. Leather skirts with straight silhouettes, such as this one, are best balanced out with more volume on top.

This metallic number is definitely not your run-of-the-mill leather skirt. It’s a metallic bronzed gold and features all over pleating. It is designed to be high-waisted, and finishes at the upper thigh. Make the most of the metallic angle by pairing this skirt with a fitted black bodysuit and black patent heels.
Many of these leather skirts would break the budget, but as mentioned previously, you can always look to faux leather alternatives. It may also be wise to look in your local thrift or charity store to find some one-off leather pieces. Which of the above leather skirts do you like best?
