I have always been a huge fan of pencil skirts. They accentuate the curves of a woman’s lower portion. Leather is very popular this season, so it is only natural to be obsessed with leather skirts. Derek Lam’s structured pencil skirt is a perfect piece to compliment this season. Besides the design, structure and hardware that ‘s incorporated in the garment, the color is gorgeous. Oxblood and burgundy tones are very popular this season as well. If you’re not used to wearing such rich colors it could be a little tricky when trying to decide which color’s compliments oxblood hues the best. A lot of women tend to opt for neutrals because of the safe factor, but don’t be afraid of marrying bold colored pieces into this look. Colors like teal, mustard yellow, forest green, rusty orange and eggplant are perfect matches to bring the best out of an oxblood hue. Since leather has been extremely trendy, it can be paired with almost any item. In order to achieve a casual weekend look pair Derek Lam’s skirt with a funky sweatshirt or a relaxed fitting T-shirt. For those ladies who spend their nine-to-five’s in an office be sure you combine your leather skirt with a super adorable ascot blouse and for those date nights or nights out with your girls the skirt looks its best when paired with a cute sleeveless peplum blouse.
