Stylish ways to wear a leather skirt for all occasions
Leather skirts aren’t just for Fall/Autumn and Winter, they’re a huge trend you can keep wearing through Spring and Summer. They’re one of my capsule wardrobe must haves because they’re so versatile, classic, fashion forward and easy to layer with. These leather skirt outfit ideas are ways you can style your leather skirt outfit for pretty much all occasions from date night to the office to more casual. If you want a fresher look for Spring and Summer switch out your black leather skirt for a white, beige or blush one.
What do you wear with a leather skirt in the summer? These are 6 of my favorite ways to wear a leather skirt in for Spring Summer fashion 2021.
6 Leather Skirt Outfit Ideas for Spring Summer
1. Cap sleeve puff shoulder top or dress and knee high or over the knee boots
Puff sleeves are still in fashion for 2021 and the cap sleeves are flattering on the arms. I love the silhouette this style of top creates. If your dress or tunic top is too short, throw it under a leather skirt like I’ve done.
Pair this with some knee high or over the knee boots for a sexy date night look. You can lighten up the shoes you wear as the weather gets warmer. Add some gold accessories for a more glamorous look.
2. Silk cami and blazer
A leather skirt can work for the office when the rest of the look is polished. Blazers always make outfits look more put together and chic and since cape jackets are trending you can either wear it as a blazer or cape jacket. I love pink and black together for giving black a softer more feminine look but the shape of this blazer keeps it looking professional and sophisticated and is an outfit that you could wear from work to a night out.
If you’re worried a mini leather skirt might be too much for the office, have a look at these longer knee length and midi styles.
3. Oversized Cardigan and Killer Heels
When a leather skirt’s more fitted, try contrasting an oversized cardigan for a cozy and casual look. This combination tones down a leather skirt and gives it a softer, more wearable look for the day. If you want to create more of a silhouette, you can always belt the cardigan. You can wear this look either with boots when its colder or killer pumps and a lighter material cardigan for warmer days.
4. Basic Tee, leather skirt & Strappy Sandals
If you want to make a leather skirt outfit really casual throw on a basic white tee and sneakers. To elevate a basic tee and make it more polished, just add heels, a blazer and a chunky gold chain necklace.
5. Black Tee and Denim Jacket
Denim jackets are so great for layering in Spring as they’re so lightweight. A vintage rock t-shirt gives the leather skirt an edgier, cooler look. Sneakers will keep this look laid back and everyday casual streetwear but I personally love this look with heels to keep it ultra feminine and stylish.
6. Off The Shoulder Top and Statement Earrings
The leather skirt tends to take center stage with outfits but you can balance the look with a pair attention grabbing statement earrings. A simple off the shoulder, neutral tone silk cami top keeps the leather skirt looking fresh and spring like and lightens the look and feel of the outfit. Lighter materials like silk and satin help balance out the heavier leather for a more springlike look.
