Good morning friends! I know how much y’all appreciate the posts where I show you how to take one item in your closet and style it several different ways. So today, I’m partnering with one of my favorite retailers and somewhere you know I shop often – LOFT! I think we all know and love LOFT because their styles are constantly being updated and they have great sales!
Another great thing about LOFT is that they make mixing and matching styles super easy because their collections are usually designed to be worn interchangeably.
I’m also super excited about the hero piece today, a gorgeous, very expensive looking faux leather black skirt. The leather skirt is extra cool because it has a flattering shape, asymmetrical style, and a little bit of stretch, so it’s easy to wear. And the good news is, it’s under $70! So today, I’m showing you 6 black leather skirt outfit ideas for fall!
FIT: It fits TTS, but if you are in between sizes, I’d size down. I started out with 0P, then sized down to 00P. Which brings me to another reason I love shopping at LOFT- they carry sizes from Petite to Tall to Maternity! Something for everyone!
6 WAYS TO WEAR A BLACK LEATHER SKIRT
I know we are all itching to wear our cozy cardigans, but it’s still quite warm, so I first paired the skirt with a striped tank top. The tank is one of my go-to styles and I have one in almost every color. It’s great for under layers or on its own – and cute tucked in or worn out.
Then, when it gets chilly or if you happen to be in a cold building with the AC on blast, you can layer over this cardigan. The cardigan has a shawl collar, and can be cozy for at home or bring a bit of fall to a summery outfit.
Next, I wanted to show you how you can bring this hot skirt and cool it down so that it’s work friendly. By simply adding a classic button down blouse and closed toe pumps, you have a look that would be welcome at the office.
The shirt is particularly fun because it combines stripes and polka dots in one shirt! And the blouse has tabs to keep the sleeves rolled up. It would also look cute with jeans or a good pair of shorts. You can’t go wrong with a classic white button up if that’s what you already have in your closet, but this pop of pattern just makes it more interesting.
When fall gets here, I’m all about adding a vest to any outfit. The colors can be rich and fun, which add a pop of color to your look. Also – vests typically give you an extra pocket, which might sound silly, but sometimes you just need more pockets! #momlife
Soon it will be all about boots and sweaters, so I wanted to show you how you can wear yours with this skirt.
The puff sleeves on this sweater are blousey and just a little more extra than your classic white fall sweater. It’s a lightweight so you could easily add a blazer, jacket or vest to this. With the round neckline, you can add interest through a statement necklace. I went with an all gold look and I think it dresses up the solid sweater.
You can play the sophisticated card with this pretty, pleated blouse. I adore the neckline and even though I was sure I’d mess up the tie neck, it’s just a relaxed bow and very easy to tie. The flutter sleeves are fancy and the bib detail is just so classic. This will make a great base layer under any fall cardigan or jacket in your closet!
I don’t normally wear glasses (I’m a contact lens girl), but when I do, they better have some pink! The pink and brown in these tortoise shell readers flatter any skin tone and make you feel all librarian chic! They come in different strength magnifications to help you read the tiny print on those receipts!
So tell me, are you thinking you need this LOFT skirt in your life?! Are you inspired by these black leather skirt outfit ideas to recreate for your own fall wardrobe?
