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.
