Let's talk leather. I love leather. Like. Absolutely ADORE it. I love how rock-and-roll it is. The edginess, The "Hey, you, stop looking at me" vibes it can give off.
I understand I am not some metal head who drives up to the local tavern on a motorcycle, but, like, I love the fantasy of it all.
Anyways, now that we have established I am unstable, leather cannot be worn during the summer UNLESS it's a mini skirt. Can I get an amen? This mini leather skirt is so much fun and easy to pair. You can add it with a silk tank and linen blazer for a more posh look, or just an easy peasy cotton tee. It's super fun to pair with a band-tee with some fun lace-up pumps for a casual yet sophisticated vibe, or you can style it with a pair of beat-up converse for a purely casual look all the same.
It's fun, edgy and still gives you the freedom to remain cool in this incessant summer heat. While it hasn't been too bad overall in California where I reside (thank you Jesus) when those heat waves of over 100 degree days do hit, they are no joke.
Overall, it's such a fun look and helps you add a little texture with an alternative fabric, which is kinda badass, even if I'm not 😉
