How to Style a Leather Skirt to Look Trendy Cool

I think one of the best ways to get the trendy-cool look is to mix casual with fancy style pieces. I like to mix clothing that you wouldn’t neccessarily think would go together, but end up working like magic. For instance, a faux leather skirt with cute booties, a casual t-shirt, and a faux fur jacket. I wore this look on a date night and it was amazing.

What you Need:

  • leather or faux leather skirt
  • killer t-shirt
  • statement necklace
  • faux fur jacket
  • chunky block heel booties
  • Crossbody purse
