Leather-ed Up

When I was a teenager, my mom had this amazing cognac colored leather skirt similar to this one. At that age, I think I was 15, I thought it was really out of style and I didn't know why she would want to to pull off a "biker chic" look. Looking back, my mom was totally in style and I would give anything to have that leather skirt in my closet right now!! Bearing that in mind and certain price points I want to stay in - I've rounded up my favorite faux and real leather pieces!

Leather Skirts

Whether midi, short, flared or pencil - I'm all about the skirt!

Great options! 


Leather Leggings

I for one, have not been bold enough to try this style yet, but I absolutely love how it looks on these ladies and if I find the right and flattering pair, I'm all over this look!

Great Options! 


Leather Tops

In keeping with the leather theme - little accents in my top is where I feel most comfortable adding the look. Although some of these all over leather looks are fierce!!

To me, leather just doesn't go out of style- really wish I would have known that back when I was 15! I think that there is a fine line between leather chic and just plain cheap, so it's important to feel the quality of the item you're buying!!

How do you feel about leather accents? Is there a piece of clothing you'd feel more comfortable sporting this trend in?

  1. I completely agree about the fine line with leather! But that being said... I do love a good leather skirt! Leather definitely never goes out of style.

  2. Is it bad that I want one of each and every one of these things?! I was the same way with my mom, too! I totally thought she was out of style with her leather pieces, but turns out she was right all along! As usual :)

  3. Oh I love all of these! I recently bought some faux leather leggings but would not turn down a new leather skirt. I also love the look of the all-leather top paired with that bright neon skirt!

  4. I love all these looks the tops are the one thing when they are all over leather I don't know if I would be comfortable in except how Olivia is rocking it.....I mean she is so flawless even though I didn't love her on the City. The pleated quilted one.....swoon city where do we find that one? See that amazing city runs in your genes!

  5. Your mom knew what was UP, girl! Ha! I love it!
    Leather pieces are so fun- I have a leather skirt I need to give some more love, for sure. Break it out more often!

  7. Isn't it funny to look back on our mom's clothes and think why didn't I realize how great that piece?! When we thought they didn't have any style! I love all of the skirts and leggings. I would love to rock the leather legging look but my legs aren't quite ready so maybe a skirt instead

  8. love these options! i think i'd end up with one of the tops as my statement leather piece if i had to pick. i'm not bold enough for the leggings. :)

  9. I still need a leather skirt in my life, loving all those options so pretty! I don't know how I feel about the leather tops though, they look heavy and hot like they wouldn't breathe :-P

  10. Love that second skirt with the quilting! I just got a pair of coated denim-- I feel like it's more forgiving than faux leather leggings, but still looks a little more dressed up than your typical jeans!

  11. I've been on the hunt for the perfect top with leather accents, so I will take a look at your picks. I have my faux leather leggings patiently waiting in my dresser - I love them, but now I'm self-conscious about wearing them! Not sure if mt sausage thighs can pull them off in public. :)

  12. I have a SERIOUS obsession with leather! It's so classic! When done right of course haha! But with that being said I want everything you posted! ;)

  13. I want a leather skirt now! You're so right about them never going out of style. I have a pair of vegan leather leggings I got last year that I've only worn a few times but after seeing all these pics I want to wear them soon!

  14. i'd love the leather skirts! great picks!

  15. Oh my gosh you are KILLING ME WOMAN! I want all the things! Isn't it funny how we view style when we're younger? My sisters are 15 and 16 years older than me, and I'd watch them make their hair all big and layer the big white socks over their leggings and think "what are you DOING." Man. Haha

  16. I LOVE the leather skirts and leggings! I'm still thinking about purchasing the maternity pair I saw on H&M's website...

  17. I've been scared of leather for along time, because of the interesting reputation that goes with the fabric. But, those skirts and leggings are amazing, I think I'll have to try them out.

  18. Love these looks! Especially the leather detailing on the shirts!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am loving everything leather!! I want the leggings and the skirt and the shirts... they're the perfect going out look, especially for fall!

    ReplyDelete
  20. What is it about cognac leather that gets me every time? Loved this post - especially the pleated mini skirt!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes, I agree with you, if I could pull off any of it, it would most certainly be a leather top! I love the inspiration photos you chose and that first Anthro top is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Loving all the different skirts you picked!
    I seriously didn't like the leather leggings when I first spotted women wearing them but the more I see, the more I like! I think I'm getting brave enough to buy myself a pair (but watch, I'll get pregnant again and never be able to wear them, HA!)

  23. RHW in the second skirt is pure perfection!

  24. I definitely agree with you, there is that fine line when it comes to leather and I cringe every time I see the other, bad side of it. That's too funny that your mom had that amazing skirt and now you want it. I feel like that is just how those things go. I really love the skirt in the first picture!

  26. Those leather skirts are so classic. Love the brown pencil skirt...perfect for fall!!

  27. Love all of these!! I love all of these leather pieces and need to get some more in my closet. Back when I was in middle school, I had some "pleather" pants from Old Navy that I wore to school and I thought I was so cool haha. They were more of a boot cut though… eeek!

  28. I'm completely obsessed with leather pencil skirts at the moment and that one from Macy's is so reasonable!! I'm going to be thinking about that skirt all day now!!

  29. I love the quilted leather skirt, and the cognac leather is just gorgeous! I think I would have to start with just some leather accents and ease my way in to it, but I love all of these looks!

  30. I absolutely love the look of leather leggings but I have yet to find a pair that are affordable and decent quality. Still on the hunt!

  31. Wow I love all of your pics! The skirts are fabulous! I have a pair of faux leather leggings and I love them, but they are noisy when I walk, husband also loves them on me! Give em a try for sure! I really dig the burgundy pair! Dang!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh yes, fabulous. I love that black skirt with the gray top and white jacket! I am also loving shirts right now with leather details.

  33. I am obsessed with the tan leather skirt, white sweater and plaid scarf look!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am in love with every single skirt you posted! One more fabulous than the next!!! You also reminded me that I have a faux leather skirt in my closet that I have not styled for the blog yet! What am I waiting for!?!?! Thanks for the reminder ;)

  36. Omg i love love these pics! I don't think I can pull off the leggings though but they look great on the models. I want that 2nd skirt from the top!

  37. Nice pics! Especially the first skirt and last shirt - cognac looks so rich.

  38. OH! my mom had a similar leather skirt in black that she bought in Paris, she still has it but it is teeny tiny and I could never fit it. I wish I could because it is gorgeous. Love all your inspiration shots here.

  39. The chocolate skirt with the plaid scarf is so pretty. Leather pants makes me think of the Friends episode where he couldn't get them back on. I think I could do the striped top with leather sleeves, everything else feels too restrictive for me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. In LOVE with that cognac skirt! Perfection! I don't know if I'd ever do a leather shirt or leggings, but I'd for sure do the skirt and a dress. Super cute finds!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love the third skirt, with the little poof! So cute!!! And the leather leggings ... I don't think I could do those! I agree with the person above - makes me think of Ross on Friends when he was at a party and couldn't get his pants back on!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I totally love leather leggings but I'm too scared to try them as well! Love a skirt too but I think anything with pleats starts to look too roman gladiator. I also agree with the leather chic vs super cheap statement. Even faux leather can be pricey but if it looks like a black plastic trash bag, aka super cheap and obviously fake, I won't go near it. you've inspired me to find some leather leggings and give them a try.

    xoxo,

  43. I love leather and have a cognac skirt similar to the one above and love it!! I have multiple pairs of leather and faux leather pants and skirts, I don't know if I could live without them!! Great posts!!

  44. I love the idea of a fuller leather skirt!

  45. I have never really been a leather girl, except for a jacket that I barely wear. I love your inspiration pics though and think you would look fabulous in all of them ;) the 3rd skirt is sooo pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I had an orangey colored leather skirt and I hated it when it went out of style. It was pretty short lived. I also hated when my leather pants went out of style. They hung in my closet for years after until I finally got rid of them. Oh well, guess I have to start over.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I ADORE leather! Leather skirts, shorts, leggings, tops, dresses. ALL of the leather!

  48. ahh i love all of those leather skirt inspiration looks! so pretty

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yes!!! Give me all of the leather! I seriously am so glad this is something that is coming back because I have always loved the look! I really need to tone up my legs more to pull off the pants. For now, I have black leggings with leather striping down the sides....that is about all the leather anyone wants to see me in for now. But....those skirts! I die. DIE! I want every single thing you posted.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm OBSESSED with leather. I definitely just bought a black sweater to recreate that all black look. I love the first two leather skirt looks you posted! xo

  51. I had never really considered wearing leather skirts or pants until reading this post.
    Ok, so pants are still out for me, but the cognac leather skirts are killer and I would definitely wear that.
    Thanks for sharing!

  52. I definitely thought the same about my mom years ago! Lol! I love the look of leather skirts and leggings on other people but it's one of those that I don't know that I could pull it off! :)

  53. Leather leggings are my fave!!!! They are the BEST way to sass up an out on the town outfit!

  54. I love leather but haven't been bold enough to purchase anything yet. I really want a pair of leather (or faux leather) leggings this year!
