Staple of the Week: A-Line Leather Skirt

(Mindy Kaling, Diane Kruger, Nicole Richie)

Even though fall doesn’t technically begin until September 22, tomorrow aka Labor Day, marks the unofficial end of summer. I don’t know where you live but in LA, the weather doesn’t get the fall fashion memo. Luckily, there are pieces that easily transition. Enter the leather skirt. For now, I’ll go bare-legged, like the celebs above. And in a few months, I’ll layer on the tights, boots and sweaters.

I decided to go with an A-line shape, which is flattering for all body types. And instead of the real thing I bought a vegan option from Shopbop. It’s less expensive, and animal friendly. Here are 4 affordable options, including the Free People one I plan to put into heavy rotation:

1. Free People, $128
2. Sparkle & Fade, $69
3. Alloy, $39.90 $34.90
4. Karl, $175
