No 2014 summer wardrobe is complete without this fabulous basic style: the leather miniskirt. Whether you choose traditional black (although this year’s Designs are anything but traditional) or a gorgeous color, a leather mini skirt is your Must-Have for any occasion. With a fabulous color palette including Soft pink, Mauves and eggplants, and even Pillar Box Red and Cool White, there’s NO excuse to ignore this sensational fashion trend.
The beauty of the leather mini skirt lies in its versatility. For casual day wear, you can’t go wrong with a touch of traditional biker look. Zippers are a feature of these designs, whether for fastening or for additional details. A simple zip-up skirt on the front, with zip pockets and eyelet straps looks great when worn with a small ribbed Crop Top with a matching zipper. Or team up with a long off-the-shoulder sweater and casual jacket to ring the changes. Additional ornaments may include a zipper leg slot for extra zing.
A fitted leather mini skirt is the perfect way to display your curves. A wraparound style with an asymmetrical hem will give you a refined look, especially when combined with a loose black Crop top and mules. Try a straight skirt with a sparkling top and leather jacket as well as high heels to make sure you’re perfectly dressed for whatever the night brings. Or for an unusual touch, opt for a diagonal zipper, again with asymmetrical hem, matched with a sloppy Joe style vest or top.
If you like your miniskirts with a little more ruffles, take a look at some of the more decorative models. Borrowed from the legendary tennis dress, a slightly flared skirt, combined with a soft knitted sweater and a long jacket, will look great, or choose a skirt with defined pleats in raspberry pink, worn with an oversized t-Shirt. You can even get paneled or fried patterns for real effect.
Your shoes can help set the Tone for your Entire Ensemble, so vary your Look by wearing different styles for simple mix and Match outfits. Dress up with a pair of designer sneakers or short flat boots for the day. Mules or Roman sandals emphasize longer legs, while high strappy sandals or stilettos will give you a super model appeal for an evening out. You can even wear the leather mini skirt to the office by adding a tailored blouse and flat heels for added comfort with a mustache.
