Can I still wear this? Sylvia says that leather will be the thing next winter.
I still have this old skirt. How do I update it? Or is it really past it anyway?
Please give me honest advice.

I think this is a lovely skirt that is timeless. I like this current look but would probably change the necklace into something bulkier. I think it would also look lovely with a wide short top or something of a statement top?

I will have a look for a wide short top. Must have some of those, but perhaps not in the right colour. Ah... Just learned something from one of your blog links.... I will purchase a neon coloured chuncky necklace, that will spice things up as well. Thanks for all your work. I am learning every day.

That skirt is just gorgeous! Agree on the shorter, wider top to go with it. And perhaps some suede heeled boots instead of pumps?

I have a white lace-like wide top. I'll try that. And I have had an earlier advice on this shirt to put boots underneath them instead of pumps. Does it look too formal with pumps?

I don't think it looks to formal with pumps, it will depend on the occasion. I suggested boots for a different look:)

It will be interesting to see this skirt with a short wide top and (ankle) high boots. Like Nanne says it will give the outfit a different and will make it slightly hipper imo.

I think it looks very nice as it is already. But of course it's good to find as many combo and mix possibilities as you have in ur closet.

Thank you Mistygreen. Still haven't found the right top for it yet, apart from a red jacket and a creme wrap blouse, which were the things I bought with the skirt. But I am sure I will find something beginning of this winter to update it.

Thank god we have a mission now for the beginning of the winter season namely shopping for a new top on your long leather skirt. I sign in to come along. I think this combi is a little to classic, because you changed your style to dress now. I don't know if it is your new waist, but the way you dress is more fun and risky.

I was not aware that I changed my style, but perhaps you are right. The long leather skirt fits nicely in this A/W fashion so I am glad I never threw it out.

I think this look is very contemporary and flattering.

No, no, no. I am not going to shorten this skirt. That is too risky, I might spoil the shape.

What happened with this skirt? I love it, but how did it come along with top and shoes. Any new photo laying around Greetje, that you forgot to post? ;-)

I think the way it wraps and ties is lovely on your hips and waist. I agree it would look good with a wider short top too or a jacket over the blue top you are already wearing. I don't think the shape of the skirt would suit everyone, especially if they had wide hips, but it looks lovely on you Greetje.

Ah.. girls... this leather skirt was amongst my failures with my big black sweater on my blog on the 11th of December. Still have not found anything to suit it. Only my short red jacket would do fine. But I bought it like that many many years ago and I wanted to update it to 2012. If I wear a wide sweater over it (= 2012) it looks so stupid. It wasn't just the big black sweater I think that made the look fail.

The black did not look good. That is true. But of course that does not mean that other wide sweaters will not fit. That particular model was totally wrong. But if you have a short, squarrish one in a bright colour (it's all about the right model), that may totally work!
