Leather/faux leather skirts are everywhere at the moment. Yes ok, they do tend to come back every autumn/winter, but this year the high street seems to be killing it with choice! I have a red faux leather skirt which I wear often, but I reaaaaally wanted a black skirt..
This is reason enough for me to expand my own collection (it really doesn’t take much). On my next shopping trip I headed straight to Topshop and hit the jackpot with this DoubleBuckle Zip Mini Skirt*. I’d found a black faux leather skirt within minutes but it was in the Petite section. I did ask if they had in regular, which they do but not in that particular store. I tried it on anyway and it was absolutely fine, (I’m 5 ft 7 by the way, for reference). I’m loving silver at the moment, so the side buckles and front zip are perfect. They do also have a 100% leather version of the same skirt, but mine is the faux leather which is considerably cheaper. I know I will wear this skirt so much and reach for it year after year, so I’m glad its made its way into my wardrobe.
The second skirt I picked up during this same shopping trip was also from the petite section. The Eyelet Ribbon Mini Skirt* took me by surprise but I adored the contrast between the pale nude material, gunmetal eyelets and black ribbon. This one was a spur of the moment, ‘why not get this one if you are already buying the black one’ kind of thing. I obliged and I’m glad.
Have you recently added to your skirt collection? Have you seen the best skirt ever and I need to know about it?
I would love to read your comments.
