Sarah Stright: Looking for a classic fall item? Try a leather skirt

NEW CASTLE — A leather skirt for fall is one of those classic items that will never go out of a style.

Much like a leather jacket, the leather skirt can be paired with nearly anything to fit a mood, situation or environment. And with the huge range of options in pricing, color and style, you're sure to find one that fits your life.

To the right I've put together a few examples of how to wear a black leather skirt to keep the busy woman classically on trend.

Look 1: For a cozy day of running errands, meeting friends for lunch, and picking the kids up from school, pair your leather skirt with an oversized sweater and tights. A scarf in a great print and mary jane shoes help to keep the look from going slouchy.  

Look 2: When you're heading to work, a meeting with your business partner, or going on a date, wear your leather skirt with a printed peplum top and emphasize your waist with a pretty bow belt. Opaque tights and pointy flats keep you warm and comfortable. Top off the look with a structured blazer to add instant polish.

Look 3: For a cute look to wear out with your girlfriends, on a date, or to a concert, balance the toughness of your leather skirt with a pretty bow sweater, over the knee socks and knee high leather boots. A knit hat amps up the "cool factor" and sparkly jewels keep your outfit looking pretty.

Have I convinced you that you need a leather skirt yet? Here are some great, low-price options if you'd like to give it a shot.
