Since seeing Gabi Fresh rocking this leather skater skirt I've been wanting to experiment with the look myself. I picked up the same skirt in navy for pennies in an ASOS sale and then it sat in my wardrobe for months while I tried desperately to figure out what to do with it. Every time I tried it on it just didn't feel right. It's the only skater skirt I own so even without being leather I was in unknown territory. It wasn't until I grabbed this pleather crop top in the Boxing Day sales that I was able to pull something together.
Having trouble pulling off leather? Just pair it with more leather and the two cancel each other out! I love the look of these two pieces together. Leather doesn't have to be rockstar or grungy. While these pieces separately could be worn that way when paired together with soft waves and this galaxy blazer the look is far softer and even feminine. Now that I've broken the seal I look forward to experimenting more with these leather beauties (and there may even be some leather pants waiting for winter in the back of my wardrobe....).
