Today's Everyday Fashion: The Leather Skirt

Last year my friend Ashley was given a big bag of vintage hand-me-downs and she offered me this leather skirt. I'm so happy I accepted, especially since leather is such a huge trend this year! (Check out my faux picks under $100 below.) It was the perfect piece for re-creating this street style look that caught my eye. Also, my tops were a good color match, but the cardigan has 3/4 sleeves and the silk shirt is long-sleeve, so it took some finagling to make it work (I bunched up the sleeves a little, and then folded the cuffs over). Are you a fan of the leather trend? Would you wear a leather skirt?
