Ways To Wear A Pleated Maxi Skirt | With A Black Leather Jacket

Black leather jacket & nude pleated maxi skirt
I've been intending to pair my nude pleated maxi skirt with my leather biker jacket for so long, and an evening out in Bath this last weekend seemed the perfect opportunity to do just that. Leather and chiffon is one of those great clashes - the tough and the pretty - that works beautifully.

The very neutral base of nude and black required an injection of bright colour, so my bright blue heeled brogues (comfy enough for walking through a town centre) and floral blouse were the perfect additions. I was in Bath for an impromptu couple of days to review a hotel and write about a little weekend break away - details of which will follow soon - I'll include the outfit I wore, of course!

Have you tried any tough and pretty texture clashes? How about studs and cashmere, perspex and embroidery, or leather and lace... there's just a few for starters!
