Pleather & Plaid

When the temperature drops, somehow my style goes from girly with flirty florals to edgy with (p)leather and mixed metals within a day’s notice. I always gravitate towards richer materials and chunkier pieces in the fall and winter, and I own enough leather jackets to be mistaken for a member of a bicycle gang.

Leather staples like this work-appropriate skirt are great items to add to your fall and winter wardrobe. I own 6 pleather skirts alone, and am constantly reaching for them for work, pairing them with tights, or for going out and adding a crop top with stacked heels or knee high socks and booties. I got this leather skirt at Ann Taylor Loft last year, but I found it on eBay for you at half price (link below)!

Pairing a statement necklace with a buttoned up plaid shirt takes it from lumberjack to chic, and a ladylike purse helps soften chunky booties and a tough fabric like leather.
