I don't know what is it about leather that spells rocker chic indicating a (not so hidden) wild side. In my mind, certain garments gain on elegance when made out of leather. Such is that case with a pencil skirt (by now you must be sensing a bias toward thus cut skirt). Worn with a silk blouse it is a perfect work attire. Worn with a t-shirt (for the creative types) and a bright necklace it makes for a very cool, yet sophisticated look. And if it gets chilly, I will simply throw a cropped dark denim jacket over my shoulders.
