One of my favorite styles for fall is a cognac leather look. May that be with booties or a purse or in this case, this faux leather skirt. It’s actually really hard to find a faux leather option that a) fits well and b) doesn’t scream faux. I certainly don’t mind faux leather pieces, but I never want it to look fake. I know that’s a weird thing to say about a faux leather skirt because it’s actually fake leather. I think this is a direct reaction from my teenage years when pleather was a thing. A big thing. And I dove 100% into that trend. Mind you, that they did not line faux leather back then and in Texas when you mix homecoming in October with pleather snakeskin pants, it’s a sweaty mess. I’ve been burned by faux leather before and while faux leather (or vegan leather as some people call it) has come a long way since 2002, I am still very picky when it comes to this trend. So when I saw this skirt on Loft, I thought it’s either going to be really good or really bad in person. Turns out, it’s really, really good. And the fit is spot on.
I can’t wait to just pair this skirt with simple tops as well during the fall. That’s what I love about this color, it’s so easy to pair with classic pieces. I’ve been really into skirts lately, I’ve noticed. I have my eye out for a good denim skirt, as well. Just to mix up my denim lineup that I tend to be drawn to always.
This tie knot top is from Everyday & Co and it’s a favorite of mine. I have it in both off-white and black. They are so easy to toss on with jeans or in this case, a skirt. You can find this top here! (I also wore the white one with this outfit here.)
PS: If you were looking for the Striped Bell Sleeve top that we’ve sold out of twice now, it’s back in stock! This will be our last re-stock so get it while you can!
