Personally, I have always found leather skirts a little bit intimidating. This is probably because every time I’ve seen one that I liked, it has been a skintight leather pencil skirt, which is A Look rather than just a casual look. Tight clothing makes me nervous (I feel like it never looks good on me) and leather makes me nervous (I feel like I have to style it a certain way to look right in it). So the two combined freak me out very much.
To be honest, I don’t really get the point of makeup rules. Most of them are just ridiculous and they only seem to limit people’s creative freedom, or rather, how they want to express themselves. So for example, one popular rule is that you can’t have bold eyes and bold lips at the same time, because apparently it’s too overwhelming. But you know what? If I had a dime for every time I’ve seen someone successfully pull off that look, I’d be filthy rich right now. (Okay fine, maybe not filthy rich, but you get the idea).
