Leather is everywhere for AW11, and my favourite look so far are the leather skirts on the runways. Looking forward to seeing lots of them at the fashion weeks too, hoping they cross over to SS12 as they are a little bit more expensive unless you want a faux version (you don't unless you're from TOWIE). I just love the flowing skirt styles as it is a complete juxtaposition to the raunchy sexiness of the fabric. Bit angel meets devil - amazing.
Wear the with chunky knits (we'll do a piece on some great finds so far, but we're still dying for the Isabel Marant Cable Knit from last season) and maybe some dorky style glasses, anything that further rebels from the norm as the skirt does. Ankle boots look great with them too - or fur, texture basically (as Olivia Palermo does below).
Here are my favourite pieces from the AW11 collections so far - we've gone down the 'investment' route rather than trying to find steals. Really believe this is a basic capsule piece that is worth eating some tinned food for.
