Would You Wear… a Quilted Mini Skirt?

It’s that time of year – the dreaded winter-to-spring transition period, when you’re beyond sick of your winter clothes, yet it’s still too chilly to break out your fresh spring outfits. Luckily, one of our new favorite fashion trends, fresh off the F/W ’13 runways, may just be the thing to bridge the gap: Quilted leather skirts offer the perfect juxtaposition of a heavy and warm winter material with a fun, flirty silhouette.

If the word “quilted” brings to mind your grandmother’s hand-stitched blankets, never fear – the use of leather (or, our fave, faux leather) toughens up the sweet look of traditional quilt stitching. Fitted or A-line, we love these skirts… and we can’t wait to get our hands on them.

Here’s how we would wear one for a night out…

    Cute! I love the style. I’ve been wearing it before it was on the A/W 13 catwalk :)

    I don’t know, it just looks like something that belongs in a kitchen or bedroom. Not too sure about this trend.

    This will transition right back into fall perfectly too! Just add a plaid flannel shirt, cardigan or jacket, opaque black or grey tights and booties or flats <3

    I love the outfit but I don’t really like the shoes.

    They look kind of like diaper bags or pillows or something! not so crazy about the trend itself, but I do like the outfit you put together!

    I think they would only look good on long skinny limbs :/

    No, I don’t need to add any more bulk to my hips!
