I never got the thing with wearing leather on my body. Even before I became a vegetarian, I couldn’t wear leather. Whether it’s a skirt or jacket, I just can’t do it. If it’s a dress, then no fucking way. I’m not sure if it’s the smell, the realization that it’s the body of a former living thing draped over my body or the fact that it needs to be lined with a dreadful synthetic fabric underneath. It’s just not my cup of tea.

As we learned during Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion Week several months ago leather is a “must for this fall. A “must” means, of course, that if you don’t have some leather, you and your wardrobe fail and no one wants that. Being hip is so in right now.

From pleated to A-line to mini, there is no shortage of leather skirts to choose from should you want to get on that bandwagon and be a slave to fashion. Which we all pretty much are anyway.

Stylelist has has a collection of skirts to give you an idea of what’s out there to choose from and what style is going to work with the shape of your body. And as you’ll note, Kim Kardashian has one, and if she has one you know it’s really in style, because her wardrobe is being picked out by her boyfriend Kanye something.
