Fall Trend: Leather Skirts

    I'm quite disappointed with the Fall Trends this season.  The runways were graced with oversized coats like those you would see on old 400 lb detectives, separates that might as well have been overalls because they look like pajamas,  crazy furry dresses and other out of this world, avant garde pieces.  They came from great fashion minds but I don't think the real world is ready yet for these overly fashion forward clothes.  I think I'll pass on these trends this season and stick with the classics except for one thing: leather skirts. I am so obsessed with these pieces but I know these things could break my budget so I scoured the net for the most affordable ones and here are some of what I found:
 
spiked leather skirt
GoJane $32.20

leather contrast mini skirt
GoJane $23.60

Forever 21 $13.80

Ponte & Faux Leather Pencil Skirt
Forever 21 17.80

   Leather is very tricky to style.  One wrong move and you cross the dominatrix line.  So here are some styling tips to work the leather skirt trend:
1.  Keep the leather skirt the focal point of your outfit as it is a statement in itself.  That means, try not to wear anything too flashy with it or you'll be too overdecorated
2.  Mix textures with leather skirt.  As much as possible don't wear leather on leather.  Remember, the goal is to not look like catwoman.  Sweaters work really well with leather as it tones down the edginess.
3.  Pay attention to length.  Too short could look cheap and too long may aggravate PETA;)
4. Remember, leather could get costumey so pay attention not to take it too literal with your accessories.  If adding spiky cuffs make you too biker chick, maybe grab some pearl cuffs instead.  If those fishnets remind you of Madonna in the 80's then go bare legs;)
If you style it right,  leather skirts are a great new way to update your wardrobe this fall season!
