The perfect faux leather skirt

Are you looking for the perfect faux leather skirt? I think I may have the answer for you on this one. I have wanted either a leather skirt or a pair of trousers for decades but never quite had the courage to just go for it. Of course, nowadays we know faux leather can look just as good. With a milestone birthday coming up, I thought it was high time I found the perfect faux leather skirt.Perfect Faux Leather Skirt

 

Mine came from Elvi which was a brand I was unfamiliar with. I looked at their Autumn range. I was a little disappointed that a lot of the range was quite dark but the perfect faux leather skirt came in a lovely deep brown which appealed to me. It is asymmetric at the bottom and has a flattering frill detail too. I was not sure about the belt at first but it is great as you can wear it tight or looser perhaps on  those days where you are heading out for a dinner date.

The things I loved most about the skirt is that it did not make me look huge in the tummy area. I still carry a large mummy tummy but as if by magic this skirt made me look quite slim. The skirt is straight and figure-hugging but that just made me look curvaceous and there is nothing wrong with that! The length was about knee-length so not too short and not too long.

My husband almost never comments positively on what I wear. You can see this as a complete lack of interest or the fact he loves me whatever I wear. I veer between the two but it is nice to get a compliment. He loves this skirt which means when I wear it to go out in he says something lovely and we get off to a great start. I have also had compliments from a few people about how I look in the skirt ranging from “very chic” to “super sexy” and of course those give the go a boost.

I have tried it with various tops including a cream cashmere sweater, a pink top and a floral rust top. It is a good basic that you can jazz up in  different ways.

Elvi have a really exciting new range right now so pop on over and treat yourself.
