I have spent half my life looking for the perfect pair of leather pants or a fabulous leather skirt. I think I can say they just don’t exist. The leather looks puffy, or the fit is off, or it costs more than your car. What I have found is the joy of a treated fabric. This skirt is a flannel that’s been treated with something that makes it look like leather. It’s not enough to fool anybody up close, but it’s enough to give that bad girl feel at both a pricetag I’m comfortable with, as well as an actual comfort level I’m comfortable with. Have you ever worn leather pants? Let’s just say there’s not a lot of air in there.
