FALL 2011 TRENDS: LEATHER SKIRTS

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Fall is producing some rather luxe and bold trends. One trend that just seems to be popping up everywhere is the leather skirt trend. It began blooming last year and is now a full fledged trend. We love the leather skirt for its chicness, luxe feel, and understated sexiness. In fall of 2010, celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Alexa Chung, Rihanna, and Kerry Washington have all embraced the trend. Leather skirts are coming in the form of pleated, pencil, and mini styles. We love it paired with a blazer, chunky sweater, or for a semi glam chic look pair your pencil skirts with a chiffon or sheer top.

Designers like Oscar De la Renta, Zac Posen, and Cynthia Steffe created their own versions of the leather skirt during the Fall 2011 fashion shows. They all showed how universal and easy the style could be worn. SC has taken the liberty to find a few styles for you that work for your plus size curves. Now that this trend is in full bloom. I'm hoping a few of the trendy plus size brands create a pleated leather skirt and a tie waist one like Oscar De La Renta.

PS- I actually have the Jessica London leather skirt (#3) in black and it is definitely a winner and fits true to size.

If you need a little outfit inspiration check out these celebrity looks:

Try a hip length blazer like Gwyneth

Kerry looks very classy and chic in a sheer white blouse

Agynes Deyns goes rocker chic by pairing her leather pencil skirt with a fitted tee

Alexa Chung looks casual cool in a mini leather skirt and angora sweater

Courtney Kardashian paired her pleated leather skirt with a white button up and black neck tie for a school girl look.

I love the Louis Vuitton one from the AW2011 collection. *Drool* The fullness is really nice. I wish ASOS would come out with something like it in the curve range (they have one in straight sizes already). I am going to check out that one from sears!

So amazing how fashion comes back! This is how we used to dress in the mid 90's! I remember working retail back then(in a shoe store, woohoo! LOL) and these pics of the celebrities could easily have been one of us back then LOL!

H&M sells almoust identical skirt than that Oscar De La Renta's one is in the middle picture. I've been drooling over it for a week now. I only wish I could squeeze my bum in size 16..

I'd love a black leather, knee length skirt with subtle, textured tights for Fall - or if you have the height, an ankle bootie. A great look!

I can't wait to find the right leather skirt for myself! On Twitter, someone posted a link of a site that custom makes leather clothing to your fit. http://www.leathercult.com/index.php?main_page=index&zenid=d3149406c8cc4f576f217354fbb4790a
