Years ago I went to Lee Lee’s Valise in Brooklyn, NY. It is an adorable boutique featuring plus size clothes, most of which are designed in-house. If you are in the NY area, its certainly worth a trip. The owner Lisa is very helpful in selecting flattering pieces. One of their awesome designs is this plus size leopard skirt which is made out of a stretch cotton sateen, meaning its got some stretch, but is thicker and has a nice sheen to it. It looks leather! [FYI- I grew up in the fabric business, so I know a lot about textiles. Figured I’d mention that. 🙂 ]
A leopard skirt is more versatile than you might think. You can easily wear it to the office, happy hour or a night out! Here I have styled it in 3 ways: 2 for the office and 1 for a night out. But, with a few tweaks the night out look could be an office look. A leopard skirt is season-less (or at least 3 season, depending on the fabric). Throw a denim jacket over a white tank with it in the warmer months for a more casual look.
