Inside the Wicked Wardrobe – Leather Skirts
With the Prime Ministers’ recent ‘roadmap out of lockdown’ and the days turning from winter to spring – bringing welcome bright mornings, longer nights and ever so slightly warmer weather (we won’t get our hopes too high, we are based in the UK after all) – we’re feeling positive (and still testing negative!) that we’re heading in the right direction to regain some sense of freedom back into our lives. It’s time to look at dusting off those heels, finding your favourite bag that’s been banished to the back of the wardrobe, and putting together that first outfit for when we emerge back on the social scene.
Our outerwear pieces are the hidden artillery in our Something Wicked arsenal; you may come for the lingerie, but ultimately stay for the pure craftsmanship used to produce our wonderful leather and lace creations. Did you know that in addition to our breath-taking luxury lingerie and heart-racing kinky accessories, we produce a selection of dresses, bodysuits, skirts, tops and various other pieces, encouraging you to take your love for leather beyond the bedroom?
Underrated but never underwhelming, our outerwear pieces allow you to explore your love for leather and flaunt your Wicked side to the world.
This entry of ‘Inside the Wicked Wardrobe’ is going to give you an insight into our favourite ways into styling our coveted leather skirts, from our Lexi collection, and from our brand new Mia collection. Prepare to make a head-turning entrance to your first post-lockdown event; be it brunch, lunch, cocktails, a trip to the theatre, a shopping trip, a stay in a hotel or a night out dancing. Whether you fancy the mid-calf length, wrapped effect of the luxurious Lexi Skirt , or your feeling daring to bare in the amorous Mia Mini Skirt ,we have styling advice for every situation. Keep reading to uncover our top tips for styling our luxurious leather skirts, that will have you dressed as the belle of the ball, no matter what your first post-lockdown outing may be…
Pair the figure-flattering swathes of luxurious leather from the Lexi skirt with a soft knit and complimenting heels for this smart-casual-cosy look. Hailing from the UK, we are well aware that while it may be ‘spring/summer’ season, we’re no strangers to a bit of a chillier climate. Swap the jumper for an oversized, chunky cardigan and bodysuit if you want an easy option to layer up and down, as the sun peeks in and out behind the clouds. Sunglasses remain a staple accessory, whether worn on the face to protect from the rays, or pushed on top of the head for those less bright days. A neutral palette gets a daring disruption with a pop of colour from a statement handbag.
Time to ditch that WFH, loungewear attire. Make an entrance on your return into the office wearing the luxurious Lexi leather skirt. Channel your inner Miranda Priestley; wearing a structured peplum blouse, statement gemstone earrings with subtle gold bangle, strappy heels, and slick shades. Perfect to recreate the iconic, peer-down-the-nose that Meryl Streep’s character is so recognisable for. “That’s all”.
Our wonderfully wicked take on the ‘suit/blazer with trainers’ trend. For a casual office day or cutting edge street style, our luxury leather wrap skirt is perfectly partnered with an oversized statement blazer and bold chunky trainers. Keep the look casual rather than corporate with some unique, quirky accessories.
Dare to bare a little more leg, with the Mia mini skirt. If you prefer not to flash the flesh, work the length of that boot up the leg. Pair the mini skirt with a maxi boot, and layer a lengthy oversized coat over a seductive thigh high.
Turn heads in this simple but stylish partnering of the Mia skirt with an asymmetric bodysuit and strappy lace up heels. A slick ponytail with statement earrings and a seductive smokey eye make sure you are the centre of attention with this stripped back, monochromatic look. No bells and whistles, just beautifully wicked.
Layer the leather up with a blacked-out outfit. We know it’s transitioning from winter to spring, but we’re Something Wicked… we love to live on the darkside, and you know black and gold are our signature colours. Style the Mia skirt with a turtle neck black jumper or bodysuit, and slouch a leather jacket over the shoulders. Heeled black boots and simple gold jewellery make it an easy outfit to transition between day and night.
Channel your inner Emily Cooper and embrace a little Parisian. (Ahem, Netflix? We’re still waiting on season 2…) A cropped white shirt, with our Mia mini skirt and a staple black boot provide a solid basis for this look. Add a little playfulness with some sheer patterned tights, a bold lip and some cat-eye shades for that French feline aesthetic. Gold earrings compliment the gold hardware on a crossbody bag; it doesn’t have to be Chanel, but it helps. Whether you’re heading to the patisserie for that not-so-essential croissant, snapping pictures of your champagne reception at a boujee event, or enjoying some Coq au Vin with a glass of Côtes to Rhône at a small independent eatery, you’ll certainly be the woman with enviable savoir faire dressed in this outfit.
The options are endless with a well constructed leather skirt. Regardless of the occasion, location or duration, our luxurious Mia Leather Mini Skirt and Lexi Leather Wrap Skirt are perfect for bringing a love for leather beyond the bedroom and beyond our lingerie. Incorporate a little wickedness into your wider life, now we’re heading in the direction of truly living. Lord knows we all deserve it…
