Today I’m kicking off a new “Wardrobe Essentials” series on the blog – it will feature outfits incorporating items that are essential to my closet along with tips on how to style them and why these pieces are must-haves in any closet. As you might know by now, my style is super feminine, a bit quirky, and a mix of vintage and new, so the pieces I’ll be featuring may surprise you as an “essential” item, but I hope it surprises you in a good way and encourages you to add pieces to your closet that you might not own. So the item I’ll be talking about today is the leather skirt that works from day to night: not just any black leather skirt, but a pink leather skirt that can be dressed up or dressed down.

What I’m Wearing: Top: Think Closet, Skirt: Zara (similar here), Heels: Seychelles (similar here), Bracelets: Audaviv (herehere & here, 10% off with code LAYERSOFCHICBLOG) & Kate Spade, Ring: Audaviv (here, 10% off with code LAYERSOFCHICBLOG), Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

The reason this skirt can take you from day to night is the color. A black leather skirt is hard to pull off during the day, especially during the summer, but a colored leather skirt can work with a casual t-shirt and sandals during the day and a dressier blouse and heels during the night. You can see how I styled this skirt for a daytime look here. Another reason this skirt works is because the length is short enough to be show off some legs for nighttime, while the A-line shape makes it flattering and super easy to style with any type of top. I also love a leather skirt because it just instantly adds polish to your outfit. On those lazy days when I don’t feel like putting brainpower into what to wear but still need to look put-together and stylish, a leather skirt is an easy solution.

This particular outfit was for a nighttime Shop & Sip event at Rebecca Minkoff. I dressed up the skirt with an embroidered blouse, silver heels, and rose gold bracelets. I’ve been obsessed with rose gold lately and was ecstatic to discover a site called Audaviv that carries a mix of designer jewelry from Europe that have so many beautiful rose gold pieces to choose from. Seriously how pretty are these delicate bracelets stacked together? You can get 10% off your entire order at Audaviv with the code LAYERSOFCHICBLOG, so be sure to check them out if you’re a jewelry addict like I am!
