Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. This column will focus on one piece per week, and teach you how to take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

What do Kristin Cavallari, Olivia Palermo and Gwyneth Paltrow have in common? Okay, they're all stunningly gorgeous, but they also know how to rock a leather skirt.

Leather can be a girl's best friend or her worst enemy. At its best, a leather piece can instantly add a touch of sophistication and edge to any outfit, but at its worst, it can cheapen your look. This week, I'll be showing you how to rock a leather skirt the right way - read on to learn how to rock a leather skirt for the classroom and for a night out.

Leather Skirt: Class

Take your leather skirt from alluring to adorable by wearing opaque black tights, and pairing it with a more conservative top in a fun color - I love the gold color and bow detail on this blouse! Add a cozy printed cardigan to balance out the look and provide additional warmth. Funky geometric earrings and cute red flats keep the outfit from looking too fussy, creating a fun and flirty look that's totally classroom-appropriate.

Leather Skirt: Night Out

Create a bewitching evening look by pairing your skirt with a floral print lace tank. Girly details like these will balance out the edgy look of the leather so you don't look too costume-y. Try out fun accessories like a wild necklace with geometric details and a cool rhinestone knuckle ring to bring out your inner rocker, and add a pop of color with a clutch and matching pumps. I'm currently obsessed with fuchsia, but try experimenting with your favorite color trend!
