Faux Leather Midi Skirt

Monday, March 17, 2014











Forever 21 crop top (similar here) | ASOS Petite midi skirt (here) | Go Jane heels (here)

5'1" height v. the midi skirt. Challenge accepted. For a few months now I've been hunting down a midi skirt that would complement a person of my height (or lack thereof). Leave it to ASOS' Petite collection to do just that. This skirt was my first ever purchase from ASOS, and it certainly won't be my last. With it's sale price of ~$22 from $75 and a 15% off coupon, I scored this piece for only about $18. I can honestly say I've found the perfect midi skirt for my spring wardrobe.

As a girl who likes to experiment with edgy and classy pieces, I naturally had to have my midi skirt in black faux leather. I can assure you that this detail does not feel heavy in any way. I paired the skirt with a red crop top and my lace-up heels to lighten the look for spring. As a petite person, I always need to be aware of my outfits' proportions. This crop top keeps me from looking shapeless, especially with the slight hint of midriff. I really cannot tell you how excited I am about this skirt, and I'm sure it will be appearing in more blog posts as the weather warms up!

  18. ooooh yesssss, I love this look Christina! You look amazing. I adore those lace-up heels under the faux-leather skirt. I'd be afraid it would look too tough on me, but you get away with it as if it were the easiest combo! xo

  25. Sometimes it can be difficult to decide what the appropriate leather skirts are to wear to certain occasions. Levels of formality vary greatly, and dress codes are, therefore, easily misunderstood. Not so many people know how smart casual is?

  26. Pair your dressy leather skirts with simple casual wear. Think white t-shirts and cardigans. Anything that you would have thrown on with your favorite pair of jeans, thrown them on with your leather skirt. Casual wear is a great option to tone-down your stand-out leather skirt.
