I've been in search of the perfect leather skirt for a while. But once spring & summer came around, my attention turned elsewhere. Then an image of Rihanna wearing a leather skirt while casually shopping landed on my feed and my desire for a leather skirt was rekindled.
Instantly, I was reminded of why I wanted a leather skirt in the first place. For someone who loves wearing casual tops, a leather skirt is the perfect way to elevate the look. Whenever I'm wearing a tee, tend to reach for a pair of jeans. A leather pencil skirt is the perfect alternative. Everyone pairs a t-shirt with jeans but who's styling their casual look with a leather mini?
Rihanna allows her skirt to be the center of attention by accessorizing with minimalist jewelry. She keeps the look slightly edgy by layering several small statement pieces. The black snapback adds to the casual feel of the overall look.
The best thing about the leather pencil skirt is that you still have the option of dressing it up for a night out. As cooler weather approaches, one could replace the t-shirt with a chunky gray sweater to keep the look casual & polished. Rihanna completed this ensemble with a pair of white pumps for a bit of glam but I could easily see her styling this outfit with strappy heels or sneakers.
