There are two items of clothing that I love enough to make me part with my old faithful combination of black leather skirt and vintage band tee. In my dreams it’s a floral, floor length Gucci dress and an embroidered silk bomber by Saint Laurent, but I’m not Kate Moss and we’re not in my dreams. So, chocolate snake skin leather skirt and mustard suede crop, you’re up.
For an unseasonably warm day in muggy Brisbane, you would think that a suede crop and leather skirt would be a one way ticket to Sweat City, right? Wrong. Both are extremely lightweight, comfortable to wear, and the skirt’s a-line style keeps your legs from sticking together and getting into, to quote Jessa from Girls, ‘an epic fuck fest with a ghost’.
Paired with some studded ‘Susanna’ boots (Chloé or knockoff by Therapy, depending on your budget), you’re ready for a day wandering around West End, buying pot plants and complaining about how hot it is.
