Pencil skirts are a must have for any fashionable woman's wardrobe, and scoring a leather one is even more of a plus. They're flattering on almost every body type (when worn in the right length and sizing), and they are the perfect glam-up weapon for any occasion. Whether you are walking into the workplace, or stepping out with your girlfriends for a night out on the town, a leather pencil skirt worn in the right way can be a great staple!

For a casual, effortless look, pair a leather pencil skirt with a blue jean button down top. This clash of edgy vs casual can make for a very interesting look that can take you from day to night easily. For a layered look, button the denim blouse halfway and wear a cute solid or print camisole underneath. This look can be dressed up with stylish ankle booties and statement heels, or you can don flats to keep with the casual style.

A great option for the workplace could be a long sleeved button blouse. Just because you are covering up does not mean you can't be cute and chic. A subtle print, such as a polka dot blouse, would be perfect paired with a leather pencil skirt, giving your work wardrobe just enough spice to be interesting and not innappropriate. Leather is often seen as "night wear", so be sure to pick a top that is not so revealing, that will give the look the perfect balance. Pairing a blazer with the leather pencil skirt is an added bonus. This look can give you the sophistication needed to command respect, both professionally and fashionably.

When deciding on a sexy dinner date look, the leather pencil skirt can be effortlessly paired with a silk top. The contrasting textures will give a soft vs hard feel to the look, while still maintaining nothing but femininity. Pair this style with a statement making heel, and you are guaranteed to turn heads everywhere you go.
