This autumn/winter, fashion is continuing to play it tough, and part of that involves mixing feminine fabrics like lace and sheer chiffon with “harder” materials such as leather, suede and velvet. Leather has become more and more prominent in recent seasons, and where biker jackets and leather trousers were once the exclusive domain of Hell’s Angels and Iggy Pop, they are now fairly standard wear for day or evening! How to take this leather look to the next level then? Well, this season it is all about the skirt – and we’ve seen a fair few sent down the catwalks as well as cropping up on many celebrities in recent times.
Kristin Cavallari, best known for her stint on teen reality show Laguna Beach and who is now starting a new season on The Hills, gives us the perfect example of how best to wear one. She pairs her high-waisted pencil skirt with a feminine, lacy top (also consider sheer fabrics in light, pretty colours) to balance everything out. Keep accessories minimal (go for neutral tones and metallics over black or darker accessories) and keep makeup and hair simple and pretty.
