I am constantly looking for ways to incorporate edgier pieces into my work wardrobe, and this faux-leather skirt from Forever21 definitely does the trick. The length is both flattering and work-appropriate, while the zipper detail and leather-like texture add juuust the right amount of edge! This is an awesome staple piece because it goes with so much that I already have in my closet. Not to mention, it can transition through every season.
For this look, I paired my faux-leather skirt with a structured crop top from H&M (read more about these tops here) and a pair of faux-suede platform heels from Charlotte Russe. To make this ensemble more conservative, I would add a colorful cardigan and ditch the heels for a pair of suede loafers.
