The leather pencil skirt is a key piece for autumn winter 2011 and is a truly versatile item. You can even get away with leather in the office (depending on where you work) if you style it carefully but it is also a great everyday piece that you can dress up for the evening. The beauty of a leather pencil skirt is that is is both incredibly luxurious and flattering. By mixing up soft textures like silk and cashmere, you can create a subtle and very sophisticated look but if you want to go a little more racey, choose a black skirt and top and some statement accessories.
A leather pencil skirt is great for both the fifties and seventies trends that look to be popular this autumn and winter. For fifties, add a cashmere twinset and for seventies a pussybow blouse. High heels are the only way to go when wearing a leather pencil skirt.
Here are just a few ways to wear your leather skirt for Autumn winter 2011

Philip Lim is the master of understated chic and this patch pocket leather skirt can be combined with a classic blouse for a smart and elegant work outfit. Add either classic court shoes or more on trend ankle boots.
For a comfy and cosy casual daytime look, team a slightly shorter length leather pencil skirt with a supersoft knit jumper.
For a really relaxed look, try camel tones which work well when worn with either brights or other neutral shades. Keep the look casual with wedge heels.
For a casual and contemporary take on the rock chick look try wearing your pencil skirt with ankle boots and a jersey top for a look that will work for both daytime and evening. Combining lace and jersey is also a great way to work this look in a contemporary way.
For the evening you can opt for a slightly shorter length leather pencil skirt with an assymmetric cut. Keep the look classy by adding a tailored jacket and a minimalist top.
