Quite possibly the fiercest piece to style this spring.
Every style conscious girl is aware that a mini skirt and heels makes for a fiesty fashion formula. But when you kick things up a notch and opt for leather material, you’re on the fast track to fierce. The leather mini is a versatile piece that is well-suited to fickle weather (hey warm up, New York). And did I mention, it’s oh-so-fun to style?
I’ve been anxious to try mixing two style personas to create a look that is clearly chic but difficult to label. Girl boss meets degenerate band singer. Hopeless romantic meets punk rock. Kate Middleton meets Jack Kerouac. You get the idea. When I spied this Western mini skirt, I saw my opportunity.
I love the eye-popping color combination; the bright orange and black shades catch your attention. Plus, the exaggerated seams and star motifs give off a wild wild west aura. I paired the tailored skirt with this oversized cream sweater with voluminous sleeve details to add a ladylike element. Heeled booties elevate the look once more and make it perfect for a downtown happy hour. Martinis anyone?

A leather mini skirt screams “badass who might own a motorcycle or at least has dated a guy who drove one.” But when you style it with an oversized sweater and polished booties, the message is less direct. I rounded up some leather mini skirts with fresh silhouettes, pastel hues, or eye-catching details above. You can style them with an oversized sweater, boyish button down, or grungy graphic tee with a secretary-esque cardigan. The more unexpected, the better.
