To prove my point, in case you're really stubborn and also hid under a rock during FW12 fashion week, here are some drool-inducing snaps from Harper's Bazaar's runway report:
Givenchy (My favorite, in case you're shopping for me)
Yves Saint Laurent - Soon to be Saint Laurent Paris, or the Artist Formerly Known as YSL, or something...
Anyway, this means it's time to invest in some leather in new silhouettes - think ladylike, the perfect way to balance leather's tough reputation. I'm partial to the leather pencil skirt - it's tailored and sophisticated but still a little badass. But whatever silhouette you choose, a new-season skirt is a must.
The perfect black A-line leather skirt, from Burberry
A sweet silhouette in buttery camel leather, from Acne
Lush jewel tone, from DKNY
Modern metallic, from Prabal Gurung
Ladylike, from McQ Alexander McQueen
And because I just won't be seen with you unless you have a good leather skirt, here are some lower priced options - I may or may not also be bookmarking these as a last resort JUST IN CASE not a single soul is willing to donate to my designer leather skirt fund (Rude.):
Hmm, kind of looks familiar, doesn't it? OH YEAH, it looks like the one right above this from McQ Alexander McQueen - geez, you need to get your eyes checked. Anyway, this one is only $149 at Asos. You're welcome.
Short and sweet - and only $128: Free People at Piperlime.
Sleek and sophisticated, $240 at Yoox
