Leather. My number one favorite form of fabric after fur. I am a huge fan of anything leather, be it a fitted jacket, a thigh length coat, a pair of tight fitted or loose pants and recently the flared leather skirt. When worn right you can never go wrong with leather.
Rule 1: When opting for a rather long and flared leather skirt I would almost always pair it up with a tight top. Rule of thumb, when wearing something flared from the bottom always go for something on the tight side as a top as to avoid looking bigger than you are.
Rule 2: When the skirt is high waist aim for a top that is tucked under to accentuate the waist and allow it to look smaller.
Rule 3: a bomber jacket is always the perfect addition to make the outfit look less formal.
Rule 4: When dressing for the day if the outfit is all black try to break the monotony of dark with a fun colored pair of shoes or bag.
