Leather Skirt for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Paired with Silk
Quote of the day: “I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.” Socrates
The last post in this black leather skirt series features another relatively feminine component and that is silk. I tried to vary our silk items somewhat. Mom got to show off a blouse & scarf, Nancy wore a scarf and I donned a blouse & jacket! I also tried to vary the color schemes we displayed with gold, purple & silver. The other two ways I tried to use dichotomy with this skirt was with lace (here) and floral (here).
50’s Skirt: My blouse is not real silk, but it does have spandex in it which makes it so comfortable.
Leather Skirt: Mom made it(similar here)~~Silk Blazer: Newport News (similar here or here)~~Silk Blouse: Gap (similar here)~~Boots: Shoe Mint(similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)
60’s Skirt: Nancy is also sporting some feminine ruffles on her sweater—another great design to make the leather skirt less tough!
70’s Skirt: We decided to have mom wear her blouse as a jacket. It may not be as fitted as a blazer, but it still looks wonderful!
Leather Skirt: Mom made hers, of course (similar here)~~Silk Blouse: Marsh Landing(similar here)~~Turtleneck: Golden Crown (similar here)~~Boots: Bellini (similar here)~~Silk Scarf: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)
If if’s not your thing to wear a leather skirt, how about a skirt with leather trim on it instead?
