Slip skirts have been having a major moment over the past year! But honestly, they were one of those items I wondered if I could pull off. Sometimes it’s all about finding the perfect fit though, right?! So, when I came across this skirt, all of the leopard slip skirt outfits starting coming to me. And of course, I couldn’t wait to share them with y’all! So, if you’ve been wondering if a slip skirt is right for you or how you would even wear it, read on, gf. I’m bringing you five leopard slip skirt outfits for fall. We’re going casual, we’re going dressy, and we’re talking about how to take each of these outfits and make them your own!
Leopard Slip Skirt Outfits for Fall
Before we get into the outfits, let’s chat about my skirt. I tried on a couple before falling in love with this leopard print version from Free People. Yes, it’s pricier, but it’s higher quality, thicker satin that doesn’t show every single bump or line! It’s also super-high waisted and has a side zipper rather than elastic waist like a lot of the other versions out there.
Because it comes all the way up to my rib cage, (it’s seriously high, y’all! 😂), I had to size up. I’m wearing the size 10. After getting it home, I read the reviews and saw that sizing was a common issue. Most people suggest sizing up one or two sizes, so keep that in mind when ordering!
As always, I’ll be linking every item I’m wearing beneath each photo. There you will also find sizing details and any recommendations I may have (sizing up, down, or staying TTS= true to size). For reference, I’m 5’7.5″, and typically a size 28/29 or 8.
Slip Skirt and a Sweater
The sweater and slip skirt combination is one that actually made me want to buy a slip skirt! I love the combination of texture. Even though the color palette is fairly neutral and matchy-matchy, the mix of texture from the knit sweater with bobble sleeves, soft satin skirt, and faux suede booties keeps it interesting!
Like I mention in most of my style sessions, you don’t want to lose the waistline when wearing an oversized top or sweater! When untucked, the sweater creates a boxier, more shapeless look. But tucking brings the eye up to the waist and keeps the outfit from looking sloppy!
To dress this look up even more, try pairing it with a classic pump! It’d be perfect for date night or even the office.
Slip Skirt and a Moto Jacket
For a trendier take, you can’t go wrong with a graphic tee and moto jacket! With a fabric like satin I’ve found its more difficult to tuck all the way in. A front-tuck could work here, but all all-around tuck will create a lot of lines beneath the skirt. So, I prefer to knot either to the front or side. (You can see an example of a front knot in the last look!)
If you want to make the look a little more classic, swap out the graphic tee for a plain white tee. You could also wear a lightweight sweater, button down, or turtleneck beneath the moto jacket! Switching out the booties to more of a classic boot would also create more of a classic outfit.
Slip Skirt and a Button Down
My classic ladies, this one is for you! I kept it pretty basic by just knotting my white button down, but the layering options here are endless! I gave one example below with a long cardigan, but you can see even more ideas in my video.
Like I mentioned with the graphic tee, tucking in is a little difficult with a lighter fabric like satin, so knotting works best! I unbuttoned the bottom two buttons, folded under the tail of the shirt in the back and knotted at my waist.
To make the look dressier and more office-appropriate, you could also try a classic heel.
And here is one of the options I tried! But I also love it with a leather jacket and denim jacket in my video!
Slip Skirt and a Blazer
This exact look might not be for everybody, but I am really digging this combination! The mix of the boyfriend blazer and slip skirt is very on-trend! Should you want to make it more classic, a black blazer would be perfect. A more classic, fitted cut would also be less trendy than a boyfriend style. I also layered with a bodysuit, but you could easily swap out for a lace cami or even just a plain tee.
This is another outfit that would work perfectly with a classic black pump! The sneakers are more trendy option, but a black bootie would work well here too.
Slip Skirt and a Denim Jacket
Lastly an outfit with pieces that you probably already have in your wardrobe! A white tee and denim jacket combination is a classic go-to! This time I knotted in the center as opposed to the side knot that I shared with the graphic tee.
I love the combination of the soft skirt with the heavier, structured fit of the denim jacket. It creates a great contrast that keeps the outfit interesting! For the shoe, you could also do a sneaker of a bootie!
