10 Black Leather Skirt Outfit Ideas
Wearing leather is something that many women tend to shy away from because they either aren’t sure how to style it or feel like it’s too edgy. But wearing leather is such a simple way to add a touch of sexiness, uniqueness, or excitement to an outfit. If you’re considering stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying to add some leather into your wardrobe, we’re sharing a roundup of 10 leather skirt outfits below. You’ll find ways to wear a leather skirt for the office, on a night out, casually every day, and more.
#1) Night Out Black Leather Skirt Outfit (Casual)
First up is a casual night-out outfit. You could wear this for dinner with your partner, the girls, or for drinks with friends. All you need is a cute leather mini skirt, a sweater, and some booties. In the graphic above, we’re featuring a faux leather mini from J. Crew that has a trouser-like look in the front and zip back. We linked a few other mini skirt options below as well. For a casual night out, style your mini skirt with a long-sleeved top or sweater. Wearing a longer-sleeved top will juxtapose the amount of leg you’re showing on your bottom half. If you want more leg coverage, add some sheer tights. Then, add your favorite booties, sneakers, or knee-high boots and you’re ready to go!
#2) Night Out Black Leather Skirt Outfit (Dressy)
If you’re looking for a night out black leather skirt outfit idea that’s a little dressier, here’s another wonderful option with the same J. Crew faux leather mini skirt. In the look that Erin’s wearing, she has on some chic Dior pieces, but we recreated it with some styles at a more attainable price point that will still give you the same dressed-up look. Instead of an oversized, casual sweater…swap it for a more elevated sweater like the metallic fuzzy sweater. Swap the booties for some sleek slingbacks or heels. And add some elevated accessories…easy peasy!
#3) Black Leather Pencil Skirt Outfit Idea (Office)
Next up, we’re showing you how to style a leather pencil skirt…for the office. Yes, you can wear leather to the office! We recreated another one of Erin’s outfits from a few years ago where she’s wearing a gorgeous IRO skirt. The skirt in the graphic is by Reiss, which is a wonderful brand for high-quality basics with a twist. If you want to style this skirt for the office, keep it simple with a muted blouse or button-down shirt, some classic booties or heels, and always add tights. Then all you have to do is throw on your favorite everyday jewelry and grab your go-to work tote. If you want to try out a pencil skirt, we linked a few more options below…
#4) Black Leather Pencil Skirt Outfit Idea (Night Out)
For those of you who might want to dress up your pencil skirt for a night out, here’s what to do. Instead of a top, blouse, or sweater with a modest neckline, consider showing some skin with a lower neckline, a cutout, or short sleeves. In this look, we went with a sexy V-neck top. To add a little more sexy to the look, throw a black leather blazer over your shoulders. Complete the look with your favorite heels, some statement jewelry, and a fabulous bag and you’re ready for a night out on the town or a nice dinner!
#5) Black Leather Pleated Skirt Outfit Idea (Casual)
If you consider your style more feminine but still want to try out a leather skirt, try a pleated leather skirt! The pleated style is inherently more feminine but with leather material, you get an edgier feel. This faux leather pleated skirt is from J. Crew and selling out fast! The pleats are super flattering, it has a side zip, and the length is perfect. To style it casually, throw on a tee, sneakers, and a denim jacket. You could wear this look to run errands, grab coffee or a drink with friends, to a casual lunch, and so much more!

For dinner, drinks, or a night out, swap the tee for an elevated blouse and the sneakers for some sexy boots. Then, throw on a third layer like this black wrap coat or a leather jacket, and add some impactful accessories.
#7) Black Leather Midi Skirt Outfit (Casual)
Midi skirts are SO on-trend right now so we wanted to show you a way to style this classic leather midi skirt by Madewell. It’s a little pricey but it’s super high-quality and a piece you’ll have in your closet forever. Similarly to how we’ve styled all of these casual leather skirt outfits…first add a simple tee or sweater, then some comfortable boots, booties, or sneakers, and then a chic but easy third layer. Complete your look with your everyday accessories and you’re ready to run errands, grab some lunch, go shopping, or do whatever you have planned that day!
#8) Black Leather Midi Skirt Outfit (Dressy)
To dress up the leather midi skirt, we created an all-black look with gorgeous pops of gold and luxe accessories. This L’Agence jacket is very pricey but we found an amazing look-a-like for less and linked it below. But you can recreate this look with black pieces you probably already have in your closet!
#9) Long Black Leather Skirt Outfit (Casual)
Last but certainly not least…the black maxi skirt! If you love a dramatic look, a black leather maxi skirt is a wonderful option! This leather skirt is by Free People and has a slit in the back for an extra style element and some ventilation 😉 We linked a few more leather maxi skirt options below too. To style your leather maxi casually, throw on a sweater, denim jacket, and some booties…and you’re done!
#10) Long Black Leather Skirt Outfit (Dressy)
For an event, date night, or nice dinner, dress up your leather maxi skirt with a fabulous printed top or sweater. It can be a floral print, leopard print, geometric print, or whatever you prefer. But it’s best if the print has a little bit of the same color (or close) to the skirt you’re wearing. Throw on a pair of heels or booties, an elevated third layer, and a sleek clutch to complete the look.
