Bear in mind that my office is very casual.

Only if you work somewhere creative/media, and only if you are significantly shorter than the model, IMO.

It's not my cup of tea.

I've seen nice leather skirts but there's something off about it, maybe the length.

Plus it looks really cheap, like boohoo.com for a 19 year old having a night out on the town price range disposable fashion.

Would never believe it was $200.

I could never wear it (not got the figure!), but I like the look of it, and don't think it would be inappropriate in a casual office setting.

With a denim or chambray shirt for a casual office I think so

SansaryaAgain Fri 24-Jun-16 21:32:34

I bought it second hand so it only cost £12. I am about the height of the model and always wear high heels so maybe it's not best for the office. I was planning on wearing it with a tie neck blouse tucked in.

I work in a very corporate environment - it would be seen as a bit hmm.

Leather/pleather skirts are one of the few things banned from my very casual office, on the basis of kink confused

Really nice skirt but definitely not with bare legs n high heels to work-maybe with coloued tights though.

AmberNectarine Fri 24-Jun-16 22:33:16

where I work is v. corporate and staid. I wear a leather pencil skirt occasionally, but never anything this length (especially leather).

SansaryaAgain Sat 25-Jun-16 07:43:35

I actually don't think it's that short, and have worn skirts about that length to work before. But not leather ones!

Are you a tiny, quirky, edgy person with cool hair ?

If not it I think it might look like you're trying to be sexy at work.

I'd save it for going out ?

I do work in a creative/media office, and it would be fine where I work, but would be worn with flat shoes and a casual grey Tshirt or fine knit - definitely nothing with a low neck or straps

LucyFotheringay Sat 25-Jun-16 07:57:52

Not with heels, too tarty. And it makes the model look rather wide across the hips confused

SueTrinder Sat 25-Jun-16 08:01:15

I'm a scientist for a large pharma and we officially have a smart casual dress code. That skirt would be absolutely fine but I'd never wear it like the model, I'd wear it with opaque tights, flat shoes and a jumper.

Liiinoo Sat 25-Jun-16 08:11:03

It would be lovely with flats but with heels it's a bit much for an office environment.

seaviewplease Sat 25-Jun-16 08:17:05

Yes, wear it but probably only in winter with boots/flats, tights and a jumper or blouse. Too heavy and dark for summer unless you have fabulous tanned, slim legs (prob under age of 35) and will wear it confidently wink

SansaryaAgain Sat 25-Jun-16 08:22:35

This is the blouse I was planning on teaming it with http://cdna.lystit.com/photos/2012/06/20/french-connection-brown-brown-leopard-print-chiffon-fierce-feline-sleeveless-tie-neck-blouse-product-1-3969137-246940740largeflex.jpeg

But maybe best saved for an evening out. I think with tights in winter is prob the best way to wear it for work.

CurlsLDN Sat 25-Jun-16 08:41:16

Your link doesn't work, is it this one?

www.frenchconnection.com/product/woman-old-season/72fg6/fierce-feline-tie-shirt.htm

Please no, the black leather skirt and sheer leopard print together is not a sophisticated look (in my opinion!) definitely not suitable for even my anything goes office

SansaryaAgain Sat 25-Jun-16 08:43:50

No not that one, the one I linked to isn't that sheer! I've worn it to work before with jeans but always wear a vest underneath so it isn't revealing.

CurlsLDN Sat 25-Jun-16 09:00:13

Haha ok, phew!

Marmalade85 Sat 25-Jun-16 09:21:57

No!

vulgarbunting Sat 25-Jun-16 09:37:56

Everyone at my work wears that kind of leather skirt. It's almost like a uniform. Totally fine.

I don't think it's a good idea.
