Hope Hearts: Halogen® Lambskin Leather Pencil Skirt
I know there are several of you reading who waffle on the whole real or faux leather debate. For those of you partial to pleather, you’re in luck for Fall 2010 (as a pleather skirt certainly is more budget-friendly than the real deal). But let’s be honest, does pleather look as good or last as long as the real deal? Doubtful. Regardless your stance on the real/faux debate, the leather skirt is a strong statement piece for Fall. If you’re going to purchase one new skirt for your FW 2010 wardrobe, you should buy a leather pencil skirt. A simple and sophisticated style, a leather pencil skirt is an item of clothing you’ll keep in your closet forever. The silhouette is slimming, the material’s supple, and the look is classic.
While there are several covetable confections from some of our favourite designers (Michael Kors, anyone?) those of us on a budget want something wallet-friendly. Enter this Halogen® lambskin leather pencil skirt. I’m loving the cut of the leather, the wide waistband (figure-friendly, hello!), and the laser-cut seams. This Halogen® leather skirt is fully lined and has a back zip with a hook-and-eye closure. It measures 21.5-inches long, so on women of an average height the hem should hit at your knee or just above. Pair with a crisp white blouse, or a black cashmere turtleneck sweater and classic pumps. Love!
