Brighten Up With A Colourful Leather Mini

The black leather mini is practically a wardrobe staple now, but for spring we’re seeing versions in more seasonally appropriate hues like neon yellow or navy. More feminine than edgy, these styles were all over the S/S 13 runways, from Isabel Marant’s studded rock ‘n’ roll skirt to Alice + Olivia’s sweet pleats. Whether you’re seeking a colourful leather mini for the office or a night out, click through our slideshow to see all the stylish options.
