Vintage leather offers a wider variety of styles and colours
If you like vintage then Womens Vintage Leather Skirts are a real treat for the eyes.
We’re talking soft baggy knee-length 1980s leather, shorter with that obligatory split at the back, or long and wavy to the calves. High waist or low waist, thigh high or to the knees.
There’s been a few skirt trends over the years and leather, as versatile materials as you can find, has moulded itself to most of them.
Whether you like your leather black or brown, blue or green, vintage is always the best place to find something truly unique and original.
The good thing about leather is that, if it’s been looked after by its previous owner, it lasts a long time, and you get something that can last a lot longer.
Love it or loathe styles and colours over the years – vintage leather
I find that brown leather is a love it or hate it colour when it comes to leather and the 80s certainly saw its fair share of brown leather.
A brown leather skirt may have you wrinkling your nose in dismay, however, it certainly has its charm and can be dressed up with today’s colours for a vintage-meets-2015 look.
Some of you may not be keen on the high waist version as they can show off a slight bulge if your tummy is less than flat.
However, you can go for lower waist versions if you feel more comfortable. The 70s is a great time for leather, especially skirts with scarlet red Italian leather and fringes. However red leather has visited other decades too and always livens up it up beautifully.

Although the 70s was a bit of a suede patchwork animal, leather was around in abundance then too, with butter brown, panels and calf length skirts that still look every bit as good now as did back then.
There’s nothing quite as pretty as flared leather worn with a black sweater and ankle strap heels.

The 80s and 90s brought us some tight leather minis, worn with stilettos and tees. They can still make an entrance too if you like creating dramatic, sexy silhouettes.
Personally, I love the long flared versions, worn on a lazy evening with a well fitted vest, heels and clutch, it’s the sophisticated evening look for a relaxed and elegant feel.
