How to Wear a Leather Pencil Skirt

Don’t be fooled into thinking that leather is just for Autumn/Winter. My pencil skirt is my favourite transition item of clothing in this awful Spring we’re having. It’s long enough to keep me warm in the wind, waterproof for the rain, and easy to hitch up for some lunchtime sun seeking!

Cardigan: Vintage
Tee: Lulu Guinness for Uniqlo
Leather pencil skirt: Vintage
Studded flats: Jeffrey Campbell

This is an outfit I wore to work recently and it even got the thumbs up from my female fashion phobic boyfriend. I finally found a leather pencil skirt that fits my bizarre small waist/big arse/long legs shape in a great vintage shop in Edinburgh for the bargain price of £6!

I love this patterned tee from the Lulu Guinness for Uniqlo range in the signature LG pattern as it’s really feminine and versatile. Uniqlo do some of the best collaborations on the high street, I’ve also got a few tees from their Laura Ashley range too.

I picked up this red cardigan from my first ever visit to Beyond Retro. Wool and leather always go so well together, and it’s one of my favourite texture combinations.

I’ve got two leather skirts now, how do you wear yours?
