4 Cute Christmas Outfits With Leather Skirts to Wear for the Holidays

I love styling a good skirt, especially when it’s leather. Leather is a versatile and trendy piece that dresses up any look, making it perfect for the holidays. If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas outfit, leather skirts are unmatched when picking a good base.

Today, I’m going to be showing you some of my favorite (faux) leather skirts and how you can style them for a holiday party, a Christmas dinner, or just a casual day out.

Christmas party outfit with a leather skirt

Skirt 1: bold red

The first look is tied together with this midi-length red leather skirt. We all know red is the most festive color of the holidays, and it’s easily a go-to when I want to show some Christmas cheer.

This skirt is super chic and super classy, so if you’re looking for a leather skirt for those mandatory Christmas office parties, this is the one.

In this outfit, I’m pairing it with a black bodysuit with a mesh sleeve and an open mesh back. It’s bold and sexy, but subtle compared to the loudness of the skirt.  

Statement dangly pearl earrings

For accessories, I chose a pair of dangly pearl earrings that add a nice classy touch to any look. They even look a bit like ornaments!

Red leather skirt for a Christmas party

For the shoes, I chose a simple pair of classic black pumps, and I tied it all together with a black bag with gold chain details.

If you’re going out in the cold, I recommend wearing this gorgeous leopard-print overcoat to add a pop of print without clashing with the red skirt.

Choose a darker print as opposed to a lighter one to keep the outfit from being too loud and flashy.

Maxi leather skirt for a holiday party

Skirt 2: playful and pleated

The next leather skirt Christmas outfit idea involves this maxi-length leather pleated skirt. This is one of my favorite skirts—it’s flirty, it’s flowy, and it’s playful.

In this outfit, I paired the skirt with a white button-up top, but this isn’t another office look. This top’s defining features are its puffy sleeves and gold buttons, saving the top from being another boring button-up.

Platform loafers to pair with the maxi skirt

For this outfit, skip the statement earrings to keep the outfit very sleek and simple, and opt for a pair of studs instead.

For the shoes, I chose a pair of platform loafers to dress up the skirt a little without sacrificing its flirtiness. The best part—the shoes are some of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn, making them a great choice if you’re styling for a day out.

Lastly, for the bag, I added a simple white bag with a gold chain to complete the look.

Skirt 3: standout white

The third skirt I’m styling is the ultimate leather skirt for Christmas parties: a midi-length white leather skirt. I absolutely adore this skirt and I’ve featured it many times before.

When most people think of leather skirts, they think of black ones, which makes a white leather skirt stand out. The added detail of the buttons and slit on the side makes the skirt an unforgettable statement piece.

Silver shimmer top with a white leather skirt

I’m wearing it with a shimmery silver top that seems like a plain long-sleeved top from the front but has a wide, exposed back with a string you can tie at the bottom.

It’s sexy but subtle, all business in the front and party in the back, making it perfect for a night out.

To accessorize, I chose a pair of statement tassel earrings with a gorgeous gem detail that pairs great with the shimmer top. To tie it together, I opted for a simple black clutch and classic black pumps.

Skirt 4: classic black

For the final leather skirt outfit, we’re ending it with a classic: the traditional black leather skirt.

The one I’m wearing has a gold button detail for a bit of an accent and accessory, and I’m pairing it with this flashy red top with long mesh sleeves.

This is another fantastic and festive party look, especially when worn with a pair of black hosiery. The hosiery adds an extra layer of cold protection while also elevating the outfit.  

Gold slip-on mules to pair with the outfit

For the shoes, I went bold and chose these gold slip-on mules with a chain accessory on the top. Gold is an especially classic color for a Christmas look, and the shoes pair well with a black bag with matching gold details and chains.

For an outerwear option, throw on a plain black peacoat to wrap up the look nicely.
