What’s ultra shiny, Twiggyesque, and all the rage this Fall? Patent leather skirts. They have been on the rise since the beginning of the season and their slick spirit shows no sign of slowing down. It’s the new equivalent to what a classic leather jacket would constitute in your wardrobe. I’m a huge fan and couldn’t wait for my leather skirt to come in from Reformation.
Anything glossy always looks good complemented with textures that have a cozier feel to them. I paired the skirt with one of my go-to sweaters, intending for the patent leather skirt to become the focal point of the outfit. Now we aren’t back in the 80s, but the style of skirt definitely channels the sex kitten look from this era.
I think it’s just right for Fall whether you decide to dress it up or down. I paired the skirt here with knee high boots which dressed it up a bit, but I would definitely also wear it casually. The next time I take this shiny thing out of my closet, I plan on wearing it sneakers and a tee. I mean, I really can’t think of a more versatile investment for the season.
