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!!

  2. Katie says:

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

  3. KC says:

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

      • NWC says:

        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!

  4. DRI says:

    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.

  5. Bunny says:

    Has anyone seen any skirts with leather trim?

  6. cck says:

    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.

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
