Fall Trend: (Faux) Leather Midi Skirts


Provided you have not lived under a rock this October, you may have noticed that leather is everywhere. It’s on sweaters, our boucle jackets and now it’s making its way to our skirts. The leather midi skirt is the new must have for fall and I wager it will continue¬†to stay on trend for winter as well. Thanks to the animals rights and vegan movements, we are seeing a lot of pleather (faux leather) at the stores and on the runways. Best part? It’s usually cheaper! My one morsel of advice is to choose a length that will suit your height. At 5’3 a long midi skirt on me could make me look like a Duggar, so I will choose one that appears to fall at the knees of the 5’10 model.

Don’t worry ladies, I’ve got your backs. Like most women, my body loves to be in the state of yo-yo. Add no waist and a bust on top of that and it’s no wonder I resorted to wearing sweats and baggy sweatshirts for a big portion of college. This week Lane Bryant is having a 40% off sale and if I had to choose one outfit this is the one I’d choose.

The numbers:
This $140 outfit can be yours for only $84. A tulip skirt is the perfect way to balance out your figure if you are a bit top heavy. I also think the Dove Grey sweatshirt could be paired with a grey-ish slacks or blue jeans.
