Leather in the Workplace


Is leather something that you could or would wear to work?  Originally, my thought process defaulted to “NO! Absolutely NOT!,” however, leather (or faux leather) skirts and pants have found a way to surface even in the most professional of places.


I’ve always wanted to find a way to mix and match a leather skirt for office wear. I believe that the skirt length makes all the difference when it comes to this tricky fabric. The pencil skirt style fits the professional vibe while still incorporating an edgy flair. It takes this off the clock piece to on the clock.

I adore this high neck, rib knit sweater I picked up at Nordstrom Rack. Pairing it together with the leather skirt gave the perfect touch of texture for the overall look. I did a half tuck on one side to draw the eye away a bit, but wanted the sweater to keep some of it’s movement.


My working girl ensemble is never complete without a bag for my laptop and a pair of comfortable pumps that I can walk around in all day. This pebble textured pump was a great find from Hautelook, but I linked a classic pump below for you that I wear practically every week! I really need to write a letter to Nine West because I have an army of their shoes and add more to the collection frequently! Overall, I feel like a total #bosslady!


What do you think about this look – does it change your mind about wearing leather in the office?
