How to style a leather suit

How I created the look of a leather suit …

… without owning one. I combined my leather pencil skirt with my blouse-like leather jacket to create a suit like look. To not look like a motorcycle bride with this leather-on-leather combination, it’s best to add something feminine. In this example, I added my unbuttoned denim shirt worn over a buttoned cardigan. For an additional lady-like touch I added a silver glass necklace that I made in a recreational class in college years ago.

When you are a regular reader you know that I am not a big fan of real suits. However, I love this superb leather suit look and this “fake shorts suit“.
