+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: September 3


Limited Faux-Leather Skirt ($70 + 50%-off with code WRAPUP)

Leather and leather-look skirts are hot for fall.  I’ve tried this one on, and I think it’s one of the best available.  I did size up because leather-like fabrics are not as forgiving as wool or cotton.

If it’s a pencil that you’re after, Banana Republic has a lovely one in perforated leather (also in petite).  (I’ve also tried this one on, and I liked it a lot.)  Ann Taylor has a black faux-leather pencil in misses, petite and tall.  Prefer another color?  Ralph Lauren has dark brown, and Bailey 44 has graphite grey.

Want a fuller shape?  French Connection has a fuller black skirt, while Piperlime has a midi-length, full skirt in navy or black.

Plus-size: DKNY Faux Leather Pencil Skirt ($79) and Calvin Klein Pleated Midi Skirt ($89)

    The full-style leather & fake leather skirts look like what Sandy would wear if, at the end of Grease, she couldn’t decide if she liked her “makeover” or not.

    But as a plus-size, I appreciate the options. Thank you!!

    I love the skirt from The Limited, but I couldn’t get the promo code to work. Does it require a minimum purchase?

    I’d love to see this styled several ways for work.

        Same here! I feel like leather is so heavy that I would want to wear it in colder weather, and I am wary of putting leather on leather (which I’d be doing, if I were wearing my trusty winter office boots). I got a gorgeous leather-and-ponte skirt from Classiques during the Nordstrom sale and I’m eager to figure out how to wear it!

    Ditto to KC’s comment…I work in municipal government management and hope there’s a way to make this work for my conservative, all boys club working environment.

    Code was for yesterday only! (Tuesday 9/2) I missed it too! I called to see why it wouldn’t work and they told me it ended at midnight.
    Saw a skirt wit leather piping at Ann Taylor today.
