Manic Monday: Leather Skirt for the Office

I love wearing faux leather all year round, but especially in the fall.  While I tend to think of leather more for daytime casual or evening looks, I also love it for work.

Skirt:  The Limited (Similar here)
Sweater:  NY&CO

A black pencil skirt in faux leather can be a great choice for office wear in the fall as long as the rest of the outfit is kept conservative.

Top:  LOFT (Available here)

For today’s looks, I wore a deep burgundy swing top with two different toppers – a cropped tuxedo blazer and a tweed sweater coat.

Jacket:  Forever 21
Boots:  Sonoma life+style (Available at Kohl’s here)

The cropped blazer works well with my proportions and has a lengthening effect.

Purse:  The Limited
Necklace:  LOFT (Available here)
Boots:  Fergalicious by Fergie
Glasses: Firmoo.com

The sweater coat has a slightly more laid-back feel and is super cozy.

Cuff:  The Limited
Necklace:  The Limited

I really like the different feel of both looks, and as you may be able to tell from the wrinkles in the skirt, I actually wore both outfits to work over the last month.

Which look do you prefer?  Do you wear leather, real or faux, to work?  How do you keep it professional?
