Labor Day weekend is coming up this weekend and while I am not ready for summer to end, I am definitely ready to shop for some fall clothes. If there’s one item you need in your closet for the fall, it’s the pleated leather skirt. I consider this skirt an absolute staple in your closet. I always end up pulling it out in the colder months. I received the midi length last Christmas, but I recently purchased the mini for this upcoming season.

There are million ways to wear a pleated leather skirt. I am always changing between lengths, but if you’re on a budget and have to choose one, pick the one where you will get the most usage. Do you tend to dress up more at work? Get the midi. Are you always complaining you never have anything to wear on a Friday night out? Go with the mini. Here are a few ways I love to style the pleated leather skirt:

For a fashion forward look you can wear to work, go with midi length. I love to wear a simple button down shirt and classic pumps. This is an outfit you can rock at the office without causing a stir with HR.

For a night out in town, bring out the mini. It’s fun and just enough edge. I paired my mini skirt with a bodysuit and some booties. This is definitely one of my favorite things to wear on a hot date or out bar hopping with friends.

For a low key dinner, opt for the midi length and a classic sweater. This will definitely keep you warm as you keep the conversations going throughout dinner.

All the three looks in this article are just amazing and you are looking absolutely hot and gorgeous. I liked the idea of varying the length of the leather skirts for different occasions and the tops you suggested are also fabulous and i think they will really enhance my look.

You look so chic in all 3 looks, girlie! I love how you’ve shown just how versatile a pleated leather skirt can be! I had one, but ended up giving it away, as I no longer liked how it looked on me, I’m loving the one you’re wearing and keeping my eyes out for one like it, it’s so flattering! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

These outfits are so chic! I prefer the shorter skirt as I’m petite and feel midi skirts make me look even smaller!
