Leather + Plaid

I popped into Topshop the other day and couldn’t resist picking up this leather pencil skirt (it’s only $75!), this plaid button down, this ivory romper (it runs small so I bought a size 6), and this blazer from their A/W Collection.  I’m still thinking about a few other pieces I tried on like this military jacket, this cream coat, and this colorful playsuit.  This leather skirt comes in a more office appropriate fabric which would look great paired with this classic trench.  I love the combination of leather + plaid and have a feeling this outfit will be on repeat throughout the season.

    Love this! I’ve got a similar shirt from Topshop and a mermaid-y black leather skirt that I hadn’t thought about putting together. Maybe once it cools down a bit more here in NYC I’ll break it out!

    I was surprised to find a leather skirt here for $75-its not it is Polyurethane. I have a few leather skirts, and even more polyurethane (aka faux leather) skirts like this one. All of my faux leather skirts wear incredibly well, and hold their shape whereas some real leather skirts tend not to. So I think it’s a great way to get the look with a price that’s more affordable. Love the plaid with it here and will be throwing together something similar, Thank you.
