The midi skirt is having a major moment, especially the printed variety, with '90s-inspired florals, polka-dots, and leopard print. However, there is one style in particular that not only transcends the trends but can truly be worn for any occasion: the leather midi skirt. This length tends to fall anywhere from below the knee to right above the ankle, which means there's so much versatility. Another plus is that a mid-length skirt caters to those, like myself, who don't particularly like to draw attention to their legs. This makes the piece a true godsend in that department, allowing me to confidently wear a skirt.
Although the options on how to style a leather midi skirt are endless, there are a few outfits in particular that we rely on again and again. The first is a fashion-girl favorite: Style your skirt with an oversize ribbed turtleneck sweater, a mini ring-handle bucket bag, and a fashion-forward pair of mule heels or flats. Another take that's spot-on for the office involves a tailored blazer (we're partial to pinstripes) cinched at the waist with a luxe belt; then complete the look with pointed-toe ankle boots. As for a casual outfit idea we love for the weekend or even concerts, couple the leather midi skirt with a worn-in vintage band tee and sporty sneakers.
