Styling a Patent Leather Skirt

A patent leather skirt is probably a hit or miss for most people, you either love it or you hate it. What I love about this piece is that it can be dressed up or down depending on where you’re going and what you’re doing. Whichever way you choose to go it will always make a statement. It’s not something you see every day so I’ve done a little research, searched for inspo, and come up with a list of ways that you can style your patent leather skirt. On top of that I’ve sought out the most affordable faux patent leather skirts I could find so that you can shop easily. Now let’s get to the styling shall we?

Warm and Cozy – Try pairing your favourite knit sweater with the skirt for a warm yet chic look.

Basic but Bold – Going to class? Going for a simple cup of coffee? Throw on a t-shirt, plain or embroidered, for a basic but bold look.

Lovely Layers – Everyone loves some good layering, am I right? Grab a few different pieces, maybe a t-shirt, button up, and blazer for an effortless classic look.

Tights Galore – I agree that a skirt on a cold Fall or Winter day is not ideal but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear one! Try a pair of fishnets or see-through nylons with boots and a sweater for that cozy fashionable feel.

So what do you think? Will you try out the (p)leather skirt trend this year?
