Leather skirt outfits can also be made formal to wear at more professional events. Get hold of a leather pencil skirt that floats past your knee length and team it up with a beautiful button down shirt neatly tucked in and pamper your feet with pumps. You can even throw on a coat or a blazer if you have one that matches the outfit. Remember to not overdo leather.
3. Leather For The Party Animal
Pair a mini leather skirt preferably split, and wear it with a sequinned top.

4. The Soft Look
Leather skirts have always been associated with a bad-ass look but it can surely be turned around. You can make a feminine leather skirt outfit by teaming up your strong and edgy leather skirt with a frill on the neck or a peter pan neck or any flowy top. For a more cute and naïve look team it up with a graphic tee featuring your favourite Disney character! Team up your look with a pair of simple stilettos which are not too high and accessorise the look for a suave and stylish statement.
5. Cardigan And Leather
If you think cardigans can’t be teamed with leather skirts, you are wrong. They can just look as gorgeous but remember to tuck them in when wearing midi leather skirts for more defined torso. Balancing out the proportions is the key here, whether you don a cozy knitted sweater or a stylish cardigan. Complete the look with stockings and team it up with boots or stilettos.
6. Add Colour
Be adventurous and ditch your only black leather skirt and opt for coloured leather skirts. Ensure that you wear them with a top that is of a different and complementary colour. Wear colours, team it up with sling bags, loafers and look cool and vibrant in leather!
