How to wear my orange leather skirt?
Sometime you see crazy items in shops, like, let’s say an orange leather skirt at American Apparel, and you do not buy them cause you think they are impossible to wear.
So today I’ll show you there are lots of ways to wear something as unusual as an orange leather skirt.
And not on halloween day!
I paired the flashy orange of the skirt with muted sand tones. The animal print of the shoe ads some originality to the look.
Because the skirt is very short, I downgraded its sexyness with a crew neck slightly oversize knit and chunky low boots.
For the bag, I chose a peacock blue as complementary color to the orange without beeing the same level of saturation.
Because the orange is highly saturated, I chose to pair it with paler complementary blue shades here.
To complete I added a neutral beige coat and nailpolish as well as white Stan Smith with a hint of green (complementary color as well).
Regarding shapes, I again broke the sexyness of the skirt with sneakers, a classic buttoned blouse and a straight trench like coat.
Although it might sound dangerous to pair orange with black (risk of looking like an halloween witch), you can manage to make it look great, by inserting a third color such as grey.
The shapes of the associated clothes are very classic and elegant. Perfect to make an eccentric item look wearable.
Here I matched the orange with complementary colors in darker shades such as navy blue and deep purple.
I completed with zebra for fun and a neutral charcoal.
The flat boots and the boyish top make the outfit look just the right amount of sexy.
I thought I’ll do a rock outfit to finish. So a dark grey tank top, black accessories and some chunky silver chains.
I completed with a hint of sparkly deep blue as a complementary color.
Again, it is rock but not provocative because the shoes are flat and the top is oversize and has no decolletage.
