One closet staple I’ve recently added is the black leather midi skirt, the cold weather-friendly sister of the black leather mini skirt that I already own. I found the Women’s A-Line Midi Skirt from the Who What Wear for Target collection and knew that it was the one.
There are so many reasons why the black (faux) leather midi jacket is a closet staple for cold weather. The material keeps you warm without compromising style, it’s a simple silhouette that will flatter most people and is available in different hemlines, and it’s a neutral that will never go out of style. I chose an a-line skirt because I’ve been told they flatter pear shapes the most. Sometimes, the a-line skirts are too flared out for my liking, but this one is perfect.
I styled the black leather midi skirt with a black turtleneck bodysuit from J.Crew. This bodysuit is another closet staple that also keeps you warm and goes with anything and everything. The key to styling both pieces, especially together, is to tie it together with some statement accessories. In this outfit, I paired the look with statement earrings from Zara and the faux leather beret I seem to wear everywhere (like in Los Angeles last winter).
Keeping the look monochromatic is so timeless and effortlessly chic to me, but there are some other fun ways to style the midi skirt, too! It would look great paired with a sequin long-sleeved bodysuit for the holidays, a neutral animal print bodysuit, and even a neon sweater.
If you’re planning on purchasing the exact skirt, it does run true to size!
