The last time I wore a leather skirt was to a sorority date party themed “Biker Bash,” and at the time, I didn’t think I would reach for a black leather skirt ever again. I was wrong. The number one item on my “Pretty Please?” wish-list Pinterest board is a leather skirt. Why, you ask? The styling possibilities are endless! From solid-color Equipment shirts, to patterned blouses, to sweaters, and footwear options galore, there are dozens of stylish iterations. No matter where leather skirts stood in your mind before, they have become a fall essential and are well-worth the investment. And for all you PETA members out there, don’t stress! There are faux versions that allow you to get the look without compromising your convictions. See the slideshow for our editors’ picks.
