This trend post combines two things that I never wear and never thought I’d want to wear – 1) leather and 2) pencil skirts.
But combined? Amaaaaaazing!!! I’m not sure what’s caused this obsession with leather pencil skirts but it’s got to the point where this week alone I have bought company magazine purely because on flicking through I saw a picture of a leather pencil. That’s not all….it gets worse, a lot worse…I actually touched a woman’s skirt because it was so beautiful I just had to! But I was talking to her at the time…and she did say how amazing it felt (while feeling it herself) so obviously I had to ask if I too could feel it. Surprisingly she was ok with this – and it felt GOOD!
There are a few in particular that I have my eye on. Luckily (for my bank account but not my heart/obsession) none of them are currently available in my size!
This first one from Oasis is gorgeous, it’s a neutral metallic so easy to wear with lots of different colours. It’s also not too narrow – always a worry, can you walk in your pencil?!
For a more classic look, this skirt from ASOS is perfect. It comes in both tan and red but personally I much prefer the deep maroon.
Now…I’ve left my ultimate favourite till last! This beauty from Marks & Spencer is so beautiful…I absolutely love the colour. Typically it’s the most expensive of the three….by far….arghhh!!! This is also the skirt that I touched – thanks again M&S press lady! So I can confirm the quality of the leather is top, top, top!
