Ten Ways to style the leather mini

I had a little bit of fun yesterday, styling the black leather mini, which is such a versatile and useful item in your wardrobe, especially at this time of year. I will let the pictures do the talking, but this particular skirt is from La Redoute (£99) and they currently have 25% off, so it would be a good time to buy if you are looking to invest. I am not a huge fan of pleather skirts, and at this price (£70 something after the discount) there really isn’t a huge difference in price, so why not wear the real thing?
Here are a few ways to style…


One outfit that I didn’t get round to shooting was the white shirt or a white t-shirt. I would avoid wearing high heels with mine, for fear of looking like I should be standing on a street corner, but I think a boot with a solid (higher) heel is ok. I hope I have convinced you that a leather skirt would be a good addition to your wardrobe. I should say that if you are not confident about showing your legs off, then Hush have a longer length skirt (see here) or Oasis have an A-line midi length skirt (see here) which is particularly lovely.
Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
