Even though I work in a relatively conservative profession, I’m not always a fan of dressing that way. Today I took a very basic look – white blouse, black skirt, black pumps – and gave it a little twist with leather. It works because it’s not overdone. I like the play of patent leather in the shoes and the wallet against the flat black skirt. I also like the little pop of red, but that’s just me. There are plenty of ways to switch out the shoes and wallet if you’d like to be more budget-friendly.
If you want to take leather to the office, proportions are important. I like this skirt because it’s sleek and it’s the perfect length. With leather, a little longer is better. Too short and the look goes from chic to, well. . . a little longer is better.
