How to choose your leather mini-skirt
Obviously leather, but why I need to mention as it so obvious because again there is Leather and leather :
Nope to leatherette, synthetic or vegan leather
Leather or not leather that is NOT the question !!!
Go for a nice soft lambskin leather that will be very pleasant to wear and that gives a luxurious look!
The leather stands on its own! No need to add to it!
Choose a fairly plain model without too many frills or superfluous blablas…
There are several options :
- the straight leather mini-skirt
- the slightly flared leather mini-skirt
- the wrap mini-skirt
- the slightly tight leather mini-skirt
- the high-waisted leather mini-skirt
The last two models require some awareness and must absolutely be tone down by very wise and elegant pieces.
Black for your first leather mini-skirt!
Once you have the black one… it’s up to you ! Happy hours on all colors !
Beige, brown, camel and even red like here!

How to wear your leather mini-skirt with style
To feel comfortable with your mini-skirt and avoid any drop of vulgarity by calming down the whole outfit.
Wear it bare-legged in spring and summer or with semi-opaque tights in autumn and winter.
Forget veiled tights, except for the evening (unless it s an asserted choice and you seriously soften and offset the top).
Which tops to wear with your leather mini-skirt ?
To balance the shapes and the overall silhouette but also to cool down the entire outfit, go for a loose top or even clearly oversized :
- loose t-shirt or tank top in summer
- loose shirt or blouse
- loose cashmere jumper
- chunky knit jumper
- short chunky knit cardigan
- loose sweat-shirt
To give your outfit some temper, create relief by overlapping different fabrics & materials.
Combine the leather of the skirt with cotton, silk or knitwear.
