Splurge vs. Save: Leather Skirt

With leather being a huge current trend for the fall season, I find myself connecting more with my “edgy” side. Any time an opportunity to purchase an item in leather (or faux, of course) comes up I take advantage of it. Although I love the leather trend, it can get a bit pricey.

Some women question the versatility of such a bold piece. A leather skirt can be worn in a ton of different ways; so don’t worry about making an investment. A great way to try the leather trend is mixing textures. I prefer wearing a leather skirt with a soft sweater or chiffon top.


This Vince Pleated Leather Skirt is the perfect piece. It has an edgy texture and a feminine silhouette. At $550, you can purchase this item at Neiman Marcus.


Vegan leather is of course the environmentally conscious choice. Free People has a beautiful vegan leather version of a pleated skirt at $148.

Would you wear either of these leather skirts?
