Leather Skirts Add Edge to Over 40 Fashion

This week my readers are taking a walk on the edgy side in leather skirts. Take a look at these fabulous ladies who aren’t afraid to take a chance with fashion.

I love leather on 40+ women, but you don’t want to overdo it and end up looking like a biker chick. One way to look good in black leather is to balance it by pairing it a casual print.

Ana, a loyal Fabulous After 40 reader, has matched her fabric blocked leather skirt with a pink plaid blouse and a cap-sleeve jacket.

Her look is on-trend and professional. It’s a great ensemble for the office, and I love how she has accessorized it with a statement necklace and a pair of sleek black pumps.

Looking Good, Ana!

A Classic Color Combination

Many women don’t think of pairing black with brown, but it is a very chic combination.

This fit and flare skirt that my reader is wearing were purchased at one of my favorite stores:

Don’t you love the belt and those sexy suede boots?







Leather and Over the Knee Boots

Tall boots are the grown-up gal’s way to make any outfit look sexy.

This season Pamela, 49, is loving her Rachel Roy over-the-knee boots. (Did she read my post on Michelle Obama’s over the knee boots?)

Here she has paired with a buttery leather black skirt and classic pink blouse to create an outfit that is sexy, not silly.

The burst of pink and pretty statement necklace adds a lovely feminine touch to this modern, edgy look.

Rock on, Pam!

Nothing beats a great pair of boots. Don’t miss a few of my favorite pairs of boots that are perfect for over 40 lifestyles.

Modern Minimalism

They say less is more, and that is certainly the case here.

This glam gal’s minimalist leather look is sleek and modern and puts the focus on her great shape.

A cool clutch and sexy pumps top off this urban look. This outfit is also from

Leather is a staple in many 40+ wardrobes. 60-year old Isabella looks hip in her black leather skirt and animal print sweater. This outfit combines two favorite trends of the season without going overboard.


Leather + Animal Print

Leather skirts are an excellent option for a sexy look. They look great with black tights to come fall. Love the leopard print.

You look great, Isabella!

Thanks, Ladies, You’ve got the legs and the attitude to rock these hip leather skirts!
