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.
