Last year, without meaning to, I fell in love. I fell hard and I fell fast, and boy was I smitten.
What was the object of my affection you may ask? A classic runway look from Pink Tartan‘s Spring 2014 collection (shown below).
The classic silhouette and simple clean lines drew me to this look like a moth to a flame; boy, was I head over heels! It became my missing to re-create this look and on my journey I became obsessed with faux leather skirts. These skirts are so versatile and add an air of sophistication and glamour to any pairing!
Lucky for me (and you!), this trend seems to be sticking around for another season as similar skirts have been popping up all over the runway for Fall 2014 like this leather skirt ensemble by Alice + Olivia.
If you’re not into the midi trend that seems to be taking the fashion world by storm, no need to worry as faux leather skirts are being developed and marketed in all kinds of styles.

I’m so glad that this trend is sticking around for the spring and fall seasons. I can’t wait to pair my faux leather midi skirt with an airy floral blouse and oxfords for a cute spring look, and a breton striped sweater and booties (very much like my original Pink Tartan inspiration photo) for a cozy fall look.
Until next time,
