3 Ways to Wear a Faux-Leather Pleated Midi Skirt

I broke my shopping ban and bought a skirt.

It’s not just any skirt, this is a Zara faux-leather midi skirt with soft pleats in a gorgeous oxblood colour. And it was all K.O Rasoi’s fault. Yes it was. She dangled this carrot in front of my face and I trotted straight towards it. Happily.

It’s a beaut of a skirt, and one that I know I can get a lot of wear out of. I have a soft spot for faux leather. To prove to myself that I needed this, I styled it in three different ways. A girl’s gotta know her CPW. That’s cost per wear by the way.

With All Black Lace…

First up, I wanted to check that I could pair this skirt with flats as well as heels. It felt only right to top the look off with a lot of lace, both with my jumper and tights. It’s slightly gothic, especially with a slick of deep plum lipstick.

Obviously I had to twirl. It just tends to happen when I wear a skirt like this.

What I’m Wearing:
Shirt, Zara
Vest, ASOS
Jumper, Warehouse
Brogues, Topshop
Necklace, Auzzie shop that I can’t remember

Watch, Michael Kors

Cuff, Whistles
 
With My Boy’s White Shirt…
 
I love wearing my boyfriend’s white shirt. While I appreciate that it’s not always the most flattering due to it being oversized and built for a boy, I don’t particularly care.
I love the crisp, stiff white of the shirt against the supple and soft faux leather. It’s a simple but effective outfit for me and makes me look like I’ve got my shit together. And I’m all for that.
I also need to bust these heels out more often. I had completely forgotten about them.

With a Casual Rock Tee…

I know what you’re thinking, that I wear this tee far too often as it has featured in nearly all my blog pics recently but I just can’t help myself. It’s oversized (mainly because it used to be Al’s brothers and then his, and now mine), it’s made of the softest cotton and it sparkles. Case made your honour.

I feel like this outfit is definitely the most ‘me’ and one I’ll wear a lot. Probably because I’ve paired this outfit with my BRAND NEW GLITTER BOOTS. And glitter socks. Hell yeah, I went all out.

Skirt, Zara
Tee, Al’s 
Heels, Ebay – River Island
Socks, Topshop

Cuff, Whistles

Ahhhhhh, I’m in love. Although I am very aware that I need to make sure I don’t tuck too much extra material into the top of the skirt as I don’t want to look too hippy. Or 6 months pregnant. Which isn’t the case but due to my IBS does happen. What a way to end a post.

Picked up a new skirt? I want to know about it. How do you wear yours?
