A trendy twist on the classic black mini.

A black mini skirt is a staple in any college girl's wardrobe, and, while this goes-with-everything piece can be worn with just about anything, sometimes, it's nice to shake things up a little bit.

Enter the black faux leather mini skirt: Just like the classic black mini skirt, this surprisingly versatile piece can be worn with almost anything.  

Its material also lends a little bit of edge to any outfit, and instantly makes you look stylish and put-together.

Wear It Now - Leather Mini Skirt Outfit for Fall

"Wear It Now, Wear It Later: Faux Leather Mini Skirt" Wear It Now featuring black faux leather mini skirt with paper bag waist, off-white short-sleeved t-shirt with red "Paris Chéri" slogan, charcoal-gray wool motorcycle jacket, gold open heart stud earrings, thick gold bracelet with chain, gold choker necklace, black patent satchel with gold chain cross-body strap, metallic pewter pointed-toe loafers with tassels and thick sole

This dressed-down look is perfect for cool fall days, and can be worn in a variety of different situations, from class to hanging out with friends.  

To get the look, tuck this adorable slogan t-shirt into the faux leather skirt to show off the skirt's paper bag waist.

Next, add a motorcycle jacket in a cozy wool fabric. (Note: I'd avoid wearing a [faux] leather jacket with this skirt, as leather on top of leather can be a little too much!)

A pair of thick-soled muted metallic loafers adds serious style cred to the look, while a trendy patent bag adds some contrast in texture.  

Accessorize with a cute pair of heart stud earrings, an elegant gold choker, and a cool gold bracelet with a chain to add to the romantic-yet-edgy vibe of the look.
