It may not be the right weather for this sweaty fabric, but Deepika Padukone chose to wear a leather skirt at a promotional event couple days ago. Pairing it with a nautical striped tank top, Deepika’s high-waisted skirt made her look taller than she is (which is a LOT).
Anyways, I’m not a fan of leather for summer, but hey– if Deepika can rock leather, so can you! Here’s how you can get a more summer-friendly “leather look” for under Rs 5000, along with some tips.

A few handy tips when wearing a leather skirt:
- If you’re wearing a black leather skirt, experiment with neon or bright stripes. It’s summer, after all.
- Soften the hard leather look with a feminine touch- delicate earrings or a hint of lace.
- Skip the boots, please– it’s not winter!
