This is a super easy design to replicate. It’s just an A-line skirt after all. (Note the details: waistband and hip zips) Quilted leather (the faux stuff) is pretty common online. I found it at for just $15/yard.

But, to make sure this stay classy and doesn’t look trashy, I wanted show you this pic, too:

You can really tell from this stock photo how exaggerated the A-line is. This is critical to keep it from looking too tight in the wrong places. It should be more of a bell where the apex is hanging from your hips.

This is what it should NOT look like, FYI.


Can you tell the difference?

Skirt: Sold out from TopShop, but available on eBay, natch.
