In life, everything happens for a reason, a season or for a lifetime. Surely, it’s safe to say the same can be applied to our wardrobes. When building an error-proof, fashion-forward capsule collection, we carefully curate each piece with those three instances in mind. Of course, it’s easier said than done. Those lifetime pieces are nothing short of an investment. The style that we seem to be investing in the most? Leather.

It’s not that everything is just better in leather, it’s that everything actually just looks better in leather. No matter the season or even the reason, leather is the stylish staple that can be worn at every and any age regardless of the season. Whether it’s a jacket, skirt or even a little black bootie, there is no wrong way to inject leather into our day-to-day wardrobe. In our own personal quest to find the most universally flattering piece of leather, we set out searching for a suitable piece that we could invest in, without a monetary investment. While we didn’t find the perfect piece of leather, we did in fact, find the perfect piece of faux leather.

The Commando Perfect Pencil Faux Leather skirt is the smoothest style on the market.

The anything-but-basic black skirt features a high-waisted top half that pairs perfectly with a hidden back zipper. This zipper works overtime to smooth all the right places. Not only is the leather skirt’s design ultra-smooth, but it also seems to be ultra slimming as well.

Our favorite reviewer, so insightfully pointed out how the faux leather skirt was a true, two-for-one.

So often shoppers face the awkward bulges and bumps that come with the high-waisted style. Not here! The reviewer was at a loss of words at how absolutely amazing the Spanx-like feature is on this stunning skirt. Amazingly so, the reviewer even went as far as to say the skirt isn’t just flattering, but flawless. The skirt features built-in shorts that, in turn, leave wearers with a flawless, flat tummy. Sure, we’ve all been told to fake it until we make it, but this faux leather skirt seems to be every and all outfits!

This was not the only reviewer who could not stop raving over the ultra-flattering fit.

Similarly echoing the previous reviewer, another reviewer went on about how she’s been searching for a skirt that has some stretch to it. The reviewer goes on to highlight her lifelong struggle to find the perfect high-waisted skirt. In the past, she’s found high-waisted skirts extremely problematic. If the top of the skirt wasn’t unbearably tight, the bottom was. It was always the latter. Much to her surprise, this skirt was the solution! With just the right amount of give, this Spanx-like feature seems to provide this already flattering skirt with an elastic-like fit.

In terms of the overall fit, many reviewers mention that it’d be smartest for future buyers to size up. One reviewer goes on to clarify the reasoning. The point of a pencil skirt is to give our shape, well, shape. Sure, the shape this skirt gives is exceptional but in turn, it could be a bit too tight. By sizing up one additional size, the reviewer believes it would fit everyone a bit better. We love how this reviewer took a potential con for future buyers and instead handled it like a pro with this tip!

When working with a tighter fitting bottom, it’s always smart to style the top half with a looser option. We’d highly recommend pairing this perfect pencil with a loose-fitting white tee. Tuck the T-shirt into the skirt for the perfect amount of balance. Looking to make this office-appropriate? Add a pair of short black booties. Paired to perfection, if we do say so ourselves!

Hoping to take this outfit from office hours to after hours? Swap out the basic white tee for the uber trendy, cropped hoodie and tie a denim jacket around the waist. Claim cool-girl style by topping off the outfit off with a pair of all-white sneakers.

Of course, we can go on and on about how endlessly flattering this form-fitting skirt is but don’t take our word, take the reviewer’s! Test out the skirt reviewers claim to be the most flattering fit, ever.
