Every Friday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase — an item so good, it’s worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity. If you’re looking for cheap thrills instead, check back Monday for a pick-me-up that will still leave you cash for dinner.
Leather isn’t just limited to fall jackets: Consider wearing it in the form of a skirt for an equally cool look that isn’t as rough around the edges. The flower appliqués on this skirt also make it spring- or summer-appropriate, so you’ll get more than one season of wear out of it. Add colorful flats and a bohemian top to play up the skirt’s inherent sweetness while underscoring its sleek cut.
