Leather has breathed new life into the classic pencil skirt look. From edging up office wardrobes to contrasting with casual separates, the leather pencil skirt has become our new essential when it comes to versatility.
The pencil skirt is synonymous with ladylike demureness, highlighting our curves and emphasising waistlines. The latest use of leather to create this timeless look adds a new dimension to the pencil skirt, injecting it with a gritty biker edge to create that cool juxtaposition of femininity and toughness. Leather pencil skirts in matte black and tan look sleek and chic teamed with anything from fitted blouses to basic t-shirts. Tucking a top inside your leather pencil skirt will promote that classic hourglass shape, while leaving your top loose is a modern approach to the trend. Maximise the edgy appeal of a leather pencil skirt by wearing it with chunky biker boots but complete the look with a fitted minimalistic shirt to counteract.
The leather pencil skirt in all its forms, from bright pastel colours to shorter lengths with added texture, is an effective way to play with contrasting trends. Choose a high-quality leather skirt in a distressed finish and wear with a floral blazer and heels for a mix of hard and soft. Team a denim shirt with a long leather pencil skirt and finish with a pair of high-tops for a catwalk-ready outfit. Alternatively, pairing basic vest tops with a leather pencil skirt and heels is a good way to showcase statement accessories.
