Although date night is primarily an opportunity to spend time with your significant other, it’s also a chance to dress up and have some fun with fashion.
Celebrities like Rihanna and A$AP Rocky seem to use their romantic evenings out as an opportunity to showcase their personal style, often matching each other’s outfits. Recently, it seems that many A-listers have been gravitating towards a particular item for their date night looks: the leather mini skirt.
This item is a bit more daring than the classic little black dress, but a black leather mini skirt is the perfect piece for a night out, as it adds an instant coolness to any outfit. This weekend, Rihanna wore a complete custom outfit by Loewe that included a fuzzy cropped top, shearling coat, and leather mini skirt, topped off with her signature strappy heels. She also wore an itty-bitty leather mini skirt earlier this month, paired with a leather trench coat and thigh-high boots, with Rocky by her side, as usual.
The leather mini skirt trend has also made its way to the runway, with designers like Blumarine showcasing their take on the style in their fall 2023 collection. Kendall Jenner was spotted wearing one of Blumarine’s shearling leather mini skirts during a recent date night with Bad Bunny, paired with an off-the-shoulder top and matching shearling boots. Similarly, Nicola Peltz Beckham was seen in Miami wearing a black mini skirt with a one-shouldered top and chunky platform boots. The trend is clearly here to stay, with celebrities and designers alike embracing the edgy yet chic style for all kinds of occasions.
If you’re in the market for a hot date night outfit, consider swapping out your standard summer dress for a sleek leather mini skirt like the A-listers are currently loving. Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, and more have all been spotted rocking the edgy skirt style on their romantic outings, giving it a major stamp of approval. Not only does it pair well with most tops, but it also adds an instant cool factor to any look. Plus, you can easily transition it into your fall wardrobe in a few months. And if you’re single, there’s no harm in wearing one anyway – who knows, it might just help you catch someone’s eye.
