Leather Skirts For the Workplace?

So I recently bought this amazing faux leather skirt  at Ann Taylor a couple weeks ago after they had a sale and I've been debating for the past couple weeks whether I could wear it to work. Keep in mind we have a very casual workplace-- jeans, sneakers, flip flops and sweatshirts are a common occurrence in our office. I try to keep it somewhat dressy, if I wear jeans I always try and wear a dressy top and make sure I have cute accessories and once it starts warming up I will be wearing plenty of skirts and dresses. The leather skirt I bought is slightly above the knee so length is not an issue but I still had that fear of wearing leather in the workplace because when you think of leather you don't always associate it with office attire. 
 So I began researching different ways you could make leather more office appropriate and I found there are plenty of ways you can make leather look stylish yet not too over the top for the workplace. I realized the key is to pair it with more conservative pieces like button downs, oversized sweaters and feminine blouses to minimize the "sexiness" of the leather. I'm confident after finding so many great ways to style a leather skirt that rocking the leather in the office will not only be appropriate, but will also be a big hit!

Here are a few of my leather skirt inspirations:

Would you wear leather to work?



  1. I love that first leather skirt look! And I really like that you paired yours with a chambray top! Happy Monday!

  2. I really like the idea of a leather skirt at work! I love the style inspirations!

  3. I have a leather skirt I wear to work. I don't find it inappropriate. Sometimes you have to spice up your work outfit!

  4. I love the first and second leather skirt!


  5. I love the idea of a leather skirt but I am not sure if I can pull it off. I can pull off a littler here and a little there but I dont know if a skirt would be something I could handle! haha But I want to see a picture of you in it styled for work!

    Love Always,

  6. I think you can wear it to work. I feel like Ann Taylor makes work-ready clothes. Especially if you can wear jeans to your office. Now if it was a leather mini-skirt, that may be a different story...

  7. I totally understand why you're hesitant about wearing it to work, but I agree with others here- Ann Taylor makes clothes that are generally good for work, and it sounds like your skirt is a good length, so I say go for it! I think you've definitely got the right idea of pairing it with more conservative pieces! Let us know how you style it if you wear it to work one day!

  8. I think it can definitely be pulled off, but I'm not so sure I could do it! I do love the pencil skirt looks, though!

  9. Its a good look, but I know I could never pull it off.
