We’ll never say no to a bit of leather. We’re used to the classic leather jackets and more recently, leather trousers or even leggings, but there’s another way to work the material into your outfit too, and that’s with a mid-length skirt!

Twilight’s Nikki Reed demonstrates how wearing a leather skirt can be chic, classy and elegant – it doesn’t always mean channelling ‘Bad Sandy’ from Grease! 

So, take inspiration from the gorgeous Ms Reed at Comic Con 2012 and pair a high-waisted below-the-knee leather skirt with a simple printed tee and some elegant sandals for the perfect chic yet casual leather look. And if you’re feeling extra daring, coat your lips in your boldest shade of red lippie!

Heart rock pendant, $88, Lola James available at Pink Mascara
