The Topshop Burgundy Leather Skirt Outfit

A Burgundy Leather Skirt With Golden Goose

I hope you all had a nice weekend! We shot these photos on Saturday and it was one of the worst days for weather, ha ha. One moment it was raining, then sunny, then windy, then rainy… It was on and off like that all day, but I wasn’t going to let it stop me from wearing this outfit that I had planned.

I was wearing a Goonies t-shirt that I chose from Truffle Shuffle again (the same place that I got my Guns N’ Roses tee from) but I decided to pair it with this Topshop Burgundy Faux Leather Skirt. Remember I showed this to you in my July update post, well I thought it would be a very good skirt to dress down with my Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers as well, to keep everything really casual. I often find that leather skirts can come with a stigma, or be seen as a little trashy sometimes, but I purely think it depends on the styling and how you wear them. I love a combination like this as it makes it suitable for the daytime, and that’s what I went with.

For the accessories, I went with my Saint Laurent New Wave Sunglasses, and some simple jewellery pieces on my wrist to tie it together. Despite these sunglasses being quite unique and statement, I actually find myself reaching for them all the time as they really make an outfit pop. I know I’m not wearing them here, and they’re hooked onto my t-shirt, but even that adds a different element to an outfit.

Getting back to the Topshop Faux Leather Skirt though, I do also own this in black, and I went with a size UK 10 in both of them and they fit really well. The belt is removable, and the zip unzips the entire way down, so you can take it off easily, which I also find really helpful for putting on when you wear it with shirts, as you can just wrap it around and zip it up, and off you go! Anyway, please do let me know what you think of this outfit in the comments below! Lorna xx.

    That is one of the best-looking “leather” skirts I’ve seen and I really love the way you’ve styled it. I agree that you can make them look trashy with the accessories and shoes you choose, but your choices were perfect for a very stylish look!

    Such a fun skirt on you and I really like the graphic tee with it! I’ve been taking part in #sparklepunchMusicMonth and wearing some of my old band tees recently and it’s made me remember how awesome graphic tees are! 🙂

    Hope that your week is going well! 🙂

    Hi Lorna, what a nice outfit you have on. Looks really cool with the shirt and skirt. Not trashy at all in my opinion, but I must say it is quite daring to wear it with the weather we are having now. It is raining a lot here and the temperature has cooled down. You need a good pair of wellies to survive the weather here. I hope it is better where you are.

      Nope! It’s no better here. The weather is terrible. It’s mostly raining all the time and it is quite chilly now too, so I have to pick and choose well when it comes to my outfits! Glad you like this one!

    Hi beautiful Lorna! ♥️
    First of all, sorry for not being here „recently“ ( 😀 ). The „sorry“ is, I guess, towards me as I see what wonderful posts I’ve missed which makes the last months even worse 🙁 I’m still alive and kicking though lol!
    I guess it doesn’t make much sense now but happy belated birthday (it’s still August, right? Anyway, hopefully it’s not too late to wish you all the best).🥳

      Hi Steven! Oh no need to apologise! Are you ok? I hope you are!

      Thank you for the belated birthday wishes and I hope you’re able to catch up with all my posts!

        I had some real s..t to deal with, it’s not completely over but like I like to say: sometimes the best way to challenge fate is to say that everything is going by the numbers 🙂
        Anyway, I can’t promise that I’ll able to go through all your posts the way I want (in this regard the apologies were to me mainly 🙂 as many of the outfits are definitely worth commenting ). I don’t like to comment things superficially, but I definitely have my top list already regarding your outfits:

        1.STYLING 3 HOUSE OF CAVANI WOMEN’S TWEED BLAZERS: a very Lornalike way of styling an outfit in terms of combining pieces, especially the outfit with the beige blazer.

        2.THE PALM PRINT PLAYSUIT OUTFIT: oh my, these sunglasses! I like the colors on the dress and the way they match the bag). As a matter of fact this is the outfit that I will try to get for my wife, I don’t know whether it is still available in Germany though.

        3.PALM PRINT SUMMER SHORTS OUTFIT: this is my top 3 outfit because of the pleasant and vivid green tones balance.

        4. 3 NIGHT TIME LOOKS WITH FEMME LUXE: this shirt is awesome Lorna, I guess if you had more photos with it it would have been my number 1. It has wonderful tones and the patterns on it are something that I see for the first time in my life. This would be the second item I would try to buy for my wife. One question: do you think the shirt will match a skirt having the same colour as the patterns?

        Have a nice evening! Hopefully you are ok too.

          Sorry to hear that! I really do hope things will be better for you 🙂

          I do think a skirt of the same colour, either black, brown, or a mustard shade, would work really well actually! I’d probably go with black though as it’s the most versatile and easy to wear. I’m really glad you love all these looks! And I do adore those Saint Laurent glasses too! So much 😀

    You styled it great with the biker t-shirt. Love the zip detail on the skirt and the colour 🙂

    This particular skirt doesn’t look the slightest bit trashy. Maybe it’s because of the burgundy hue, or maybe it’s because it seems to fit well. (Really trashy leather always looks too tight.)

      Thank you, Charles! I’m glad to hear that! I don’t think it does either, mostly due to the fit and the zips!

    This is such a wonderful outfit! I love wearing leather skirts and I can see why you got that skirt and black too.
