I've bought a black leather A line mini from M and S petite range, of all places, but I have absolutely no idea what to wear it with. All advice appreciated, working from the shoes up! I would like to wear it out in the evenings, out for dinner or for a few drinks. I am a 40 year old, very short size 10, with a flat chest, and I tend to buy in petite ranges as I am so short and my frame is quite narrow.
I have a similar skirt, but mine is faux leather. I've worn it really dressed down - so for example with a jumper, opaques and Chelsea boots. My thinking is that it's pretty much a statement skirt and needs the rest of the outfit kept under-stated to avoid looking too much.
This chunky knit looks great with a leather skirt. It's got a decent amount of cotton in it so doesn't feel cheap. It comes up quite generous size wise so you'd be fine with the XS. There is 25% off one item with code 3169.
Did you see Claudia Winkleman on the strictly results show on Sunday? She was wearing a simple black skirt that looked like leather, (and would work with a leather skirt) with a high neck buttoned up cream/ white lace shirt and simple black courts. Another evening look?
