Plus Size Outfit Idea – How to Wear Plus Size Leather Skirts

Faux and genuine leather skirts are trending this season.  And I love it!  When wearing leather pieces, it’s all about mixing textures.  Leather (even faux leather) is decadent and smooth, to accentuate it, add other textures, such as faux fur, suede, lace, and silky fabrics.  Think: opposites attract.  And when mixing textures you can even keep it monochromatic (see this collection for inspiration) because the interest is in the textures.  Below are some practical outfit ideas for wearing plus size leather skirts.

#1 Plus Size Leather Skirt Outfit

Mix a leather skirt with a faux fur vest and suede knee high boots (love these wide calf over the knee boots from Eloquii).  The leather handbag adds interest because of its on-trend fringe.  This outfit can easily be worn to the office and casual happy hours!

#4 Plus Size Leather Skirt Outfit

A leather skirt is easy to dress up.  Leather and lace is always a good combination, but you can take it up a notch with some luxe faux fur.  Since this outfit has a lot of texture and interest, especially with lace up sandals, keep jewelry and accessories minimal.

  1. Hi Alexa, I’ve never heard of you or read any blogs until today
    I really like your fashion and styles this blog thing is great, but i am 52 years old short and weighs about 175lbs with a pouch/stomach and a few rolls so i want to be stylish as well knowing what’s the best for my body type .Can you please email me some information. Help!!!

    1. Hi Rochelle,
      Welcome to my blog! Can you tell me your shape: apple, pear, hourglass? Are your shoulders and hips roughly the same or is one bigger than the other? Are you larger in the middle? That is a good starting point.

      1. Alexa: I am in the same boat as Rochelle! I love your outfits – and some of them are perfect exactly the way they are – but I am 55 years old, short and an Apple shape – really big belly that hangs a little. Can you help me out?
        Thank you!!
        Kim Wood

  2. Yes I have and they are so cute! However, I was hoping you would style some Apple plus sized complete outfirs. If it’s possible.
    Thank you!
    Kim
