As you know, I’m not really a Rock n Roll sort of chic. A head to toe, Angelina Jolie leather look, isn’t my cup of tea. But I gladly made an exception for this luxe rich brown leather skirt from Ralph Lauren. Leather doesn’t always have to be moto jackets and rocker trousers. Give leather a ladylike spin in a pencil skirt.
It’s such a versatile, classic item that you can dress up or down. Mine will serve me many years as an autumn / winter workhorse.
Above: Brown and pink is one of my favourite colour combos (think Hummingbird Bakery). For a more casual look, I paired the pencil skirt with a pink cashmere jumper.
This girl can do no wrong: Alexa Chung pairs a luxe leather pencil skirt with a chunky knit jumper.
I’m wearing: Leather Pencil skirt from Ralph Lauren at TK Maxx, pink cashmere jumper from tfc, hand bag from Antoni & Alison. If you are unsure of leather, go for a colour other than black for a a less severe look.
When we talk about leather, we can’t leave Ange out: She glams her leather pencil skirt up with a silk blouse.
