Marron

I've had a black leather skirt on my wish list for a long time, finally I find a perfect one but....it's brown! I hardly ever deviate from black, white and grey, so brown is a bit unusual for me. Luckily, with all my other clothes being monochrome, everything works with this skirt. I'm going to wear it with white or powder blue shirts mostly. Because it is lined it should be okay to wear in the summer, and it will look good with tights in winter. I'm struggling a bit with shoes though, any ideas?
It's from Zara and was in the sale :-)

  2. Great purchase! What about wearing it with ballet flats or simple gladiators?

  3. I saw that skirt in Antwerp yesterday and I remember thinking how terrific it was! I really like how a similarly coloured skirt is combined here http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/F2010RTW-NO21?event=show2062&designer=design_house3134&trend=&iphoto=3 but I'm guessing that if you do not already own fuchsia coloured shoes, it's not worth the extra investment ;)

  4. At least the color is summer-friendly! You could wear the skirt with wooden wedge sandals. :-)

  5. Izzy - definitely will be!

    Aissa & Dahlia - I definitely agree that sandals are the way to go with this skirt for summer :-)

    mmr - I love that look. Hmmm I would like to add more colour to my wardrobe, maybe i should invest!

  6. I bought the skirt a few days ago too! I was thinking of wearing it with white or blue blouses too! What a coincidence! I think I'll wear creme coloured oxfords(also from zara) with it or a pair of flats/sandals.

  8. heart in a cage - great minds think alike! I look forward to seeing how you wear yours.

    magdalyn - thanks! Celine definitely crossed my mind when I bought it. I've been obsessed with the brown leather looks ever since.

  10. Oh it's perfect! I wish i'd seen this in the sale - the only thing I found at Zara was a nautical white blazer (which I bought, but was only reduced by £10 so not really what I consider a sale). I'm definitely on the hunt for a leather skirt like this and tailored leather shorts for winter.
