Fall trend: The Leather Skirt

Sorry for the "blog posting-drought" but I've been working hard on a very particular fashion project that I hope I will share with you soon. I've been looking for inspiration, doing a lot of research and above all keeping an eye on this and next seasons trends.
But let's re-start with one of THIS AW12 season's trends: the leather skirt. It's been a must also during warmer weather, and it's here to stay with us on the darker times.
Young designers like talented Cynthia Buttenklepper have their own version of the leather skirt-turned-into-shorts style. An edgy and provocative look presented by the Mexican's designer. Keep an eye on this girl because she's rockin' the house at the other side of the Atlantic.

But it's not only about a tough look. Contemporary fashion brand Ines et Marechal takes the French chic to another level and shows us the soft side of the this trend. 

Here there are some street pics with some ideas on how to style the leather skirt - they go from the conservative lady look to the retro-like attitude. We have black, camel-brown and of course the color of the season - Burgundy (with a total look of leather skirt and knitted jumper). Style it with "flatforms", trainers, heels or ankle boots.
Well, talk to you soon.
Gosh! how I missed this...
