Leather Skirt 3 (With Silk)

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.

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!

Thanks to you all! Partying with #blogsharelearn, iwillwearwhatilike, Personal Style, All About You & Weekend Wear

If if’s not your thing to wear a leather skirt, how about a skirt with leather trim on it instead?

  • I love this idea of showing three ways to wear. We are all different shapes and sizes, so this is great for everyone. You all look fabulous and I love how you have used acssesories for each of the outfits.

      Thanks Laurie!

    Great outfits! Leather (or faux leather) is so good for dressing up or down. Love the feminine details on each outfit! Can’t wait for the next post.

  • Anna Parkes

    Am gobsmacked that your lovely (clever) mum made all of these skirts! Leather can’t be the easiest of materials to sew? Anyway, I think you’re all looking fab and must admit I do love your gold jacket Jodie, it’s very chic.

      Well…she (my mom) is quite talented, but these are faux leather. So I’m not quite sure if that makes it easier or not! For her, there’s probably not much difference! Thanks for the input Anna!!

  • Jane

    You all look fantastic. Would you be able to do one on leather jackets?

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a fabulous idea! I’ll put it in my folder for the fall months!! Thanks for reading Jane!

  • Leather and silk….you are maxing out the decadence here Jodie!
    Another classic texture combination.
    Your Mum looks AMAZING in silver. Wow!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Samantha!! Not quite close to minimalism, huh?

  • PetiteOver40

    Silk and leather together seem almost decadent! You all look so beautiful! I especially love how you created a jacket with your mom’s blouse. The pockets and hem do make it look like a silk blazer. Very clever idea!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Sherry!! You can tell you write food articles…decadent reminds me of dessert!!

  • Love the color variation in all three looks! Great series 🙂
