Who says you can’t wear leather to the office? Certainly not us. Leather is not commonly thought of when you you say work style. However, we beg to differ. Though leather is edgy, there is a way to incorporate it into your work wardrobe.
The key to making leather work appropriate is to select key leather pieces and balance it with traditional office wear. Adding leather to your work style repertoire is a great way to keep things surprising in the sartorial department.
Work Style Essentials
Wearing leather pants to the office is a twist and a nod to the traditional office slacks. Instead of your usual black trousers, leather will liven up your work ensemble. To avoid looking like you’re going to a rock concert, balance the leather pants with structured pieces. Try pairing it with structured satchels, polished pumps, menswear-inspired cardigans and button downs.
Leather Pencil Skirt
Pencil skirts are a work wear wardrobe staple. Now leather pencil skirts are a definite twist to the conventional. Since pencil skirts are snug, you have to be careful of looking too risqué at work. Cover up on top and let your leather pencil skirt do the talking. Wear it with turtlenecks, boxy tops, and blazers.
Opt for a leather dress over that tried-and-tested sheath or shift dress for a powerful look that wows. A leather dress makes a major statement, and is a good choice for those important presentation or meeting days. While the silhouette is classic, the texture of leather makes this look more contemporary. Cinch with a belt to add dimension to your look.
