Ann Taylor Leather Pencil Skirt (also in petite, $89 + 40% off)
Want to jazz up your basic knits and blouses? Pick up a leather skirt. The contrast between the soft, ladylike tops and leather bottoms is a nice take on the masculine/feminine trend.
I prefer not to buy black leather skirts; they feel a bit severe to me. Instead, I chose this Ann Taylor skirt in pine green. I also love this Rebecca Taylor skirt in cognac with a kick hem. This grey Tommy Hilfiger skirt is an affordable choice. And if you love burgundy (fall’s hottest hue) this midi-length skirt from Oliveacious ($48!) is a great buy.
Plus-size? I love this dusty pink Ashley Nell pleated skirt and this grey Melissa McCarthy skirt for something more modern.

The holiday party invites are rolling in and I’m ready to shop early. Would love to see you ideas for looks for this season, maybe post turkey day! Love your picks for different levels of formal in years past.
