A wardrobe full of pieces that can be styled endlessly is definitely a Trend-Hungry-girl must (have you seen the Dare to Wear column??). Faux leather is an affordable way to look chic and indulge in this fall trend – leather skirts. When the weather cools down throw on a comfy loose-fit knit sweater. The sweater gives off a super-casual style, so you can wear this from day to night. If you’re going for a more dressed-up look, pair your skirt with opaque tights and/or simple flat boots. The key to wearing boots with this is similar to Rule #1 from the Double Denim Trend: Mix your washes. Likewise, find some boots that don’t closely match your skirt.
