Back at it with another band tee.... I have been finding myself buying and constantly wearing tees like this even though I usually wear them as oversized dresses.

In this case, I had to pair it with this belted mini leather skirt.... I couldn't resist! A lot of you asked me certain questions regarding this leather skirt when I posted it on my Instagram for my birthday (view here). One question stood out to me though; how to style leather skirts. I personally thought this was a great topic because I, myself have struggled to find the perfect fitting leather skirt.


With that said, on my body type leather skirts tend to make me look a little square (we all know we wouldn't want to come off looking like Spongebob Square Pants...That's a big no -no). It took me a while and a million leather skirts later to really figure out what worked. I started finding skirts (like the one pictured above) that were belted or had some sort of tie at the waist. Ladies, this is the magic trick to everything.....Cinch the waist! By doing this, you will create the illusion of a smaller waist line, and it can definitely look slimming. I also love going for skirts that have architecture (as the zipper on this skirt shows) and skirts that allow me to tuck my top in it.


As for the shoes, I had to add a kick of my favorite currently trending trend, crushed velvet! I have listed a customized discount code above where you can get 15% off any shoe purchase at Lola Shoetique.
