Leather skirt

A woman in a leather skirt

A leather skirt is a skirt made of leather. Although durable material, the particular combination of style and material makes for a certain fashion statement. Leather skirts appear in a variety of lengths and styles.

Use varies with current trends in fashion, e.g. during the 80s and 90s they were a popular item on the catwalks with popularity dwindling in the early 2000s.


A short leather skirt might be regarded as more sexy than an equivalent short skirt of other material, and thus as more suitable to a night out than as office wear. A long leather skirt might look professional and chic without looking too sexy for the office.


Leather garments, including skirts, see use in heavy metal, goth and BDSM subcultures.


Like other skirts in western culture they are almost exclusively worn by women
