Celebrities are always a good source of inspo, but especially so when it comes to tricky trends and timing, such as lingerie as evening wear and even mommy-and-me dressing. And Zendaya is one of those awesome gals that keeps us guessing with her creativity and her surprises.

Recently, she posted a pic of herself wearing one of the most versatile pieces for transitioning from summer to fall even through to winter — an awesome leather mini skirt. She’s rocking it with a simple blouse and lace heels (of her own #girlboss designs, of course), but you can take her wisdom and expand upon it with these outfits.


Think you can’t wear a leather skirt to work? Think again. Find one that works for your corporate culture, and then go all out girlie with it — a tie-front blouse, a boucle jacket, ankle wrap pumps and some pretty pink accessories will do you just fine.

A leather mini is always welcome at date night, but instead of bringing in more black to your outfit, what about trying it with some lighter neutrals? These clay colored over-the-knee boots and blush pink bag are all tied together by the printed camisole, with a skinny scarf as the icing on the (hot!) cake. A blazer and a pair of tights will take this from fall to winter easily too.

Take your leather skirt out for a casual spin with a checkered shirt, sneakers and a good jacket to ward off all that inevitable wacky wind and rain. A yellow cross-body bag leaves you free to talk with your hands while you’re walking around with your girlfriends.
