Leather is a very challenging fabric to rock in a country like Uganda. We have more warm and hot days, than very cold ones, and it being the heavy fabric, it keeps the wearer warm at any time of day.
This attribute of leather has therefore led most of the Ugandan ladies to hold back; thinking they will experience more sweaty days, than cool comfortable ones.
However, it is possible to enjoy leather fabric clothing even on a hot day. Here are tips on how you can rock a leather skirt in Uganda, and come off looking classy, elegant and very comfortable at all:
If it is brief, above the knee length; whether it is tight or loosely fitting it will hold less warmth. A mini leather skirt will allow a flow of fresh air in the sunny or warm days. It will also make cold days of the night seem warm when you wear it out at night at a cocktail party.
If you are the kind who is not comfortable with wearing miniskirts, then adding a bit of lace to cover up to knee length or ankle length should do the magic for you. You can also touch it up with sheer fabric like chiffon and others that can easily allow the follow of fresh air during the sunny hot days, and also be able to keep you warm during the cold days.
Adding a silt detail to a maxi leather skirt is very comforting and very refreshing experience. The silt keeps you looking sensual, and very glam at the same time.
Wear a knee length pencil skirt with low silt for work or to any formal function. It could be during the day or night.
Bring out the drama in you, wear a loosely fitting patched colorful leather skirt.
Layer it up
If you are the kind who finds it uncomforting to wear extremely mini or any see through fabric; then layering your mini skirt could be the way to go. Wear a legging, or body stocking under a mini leather skirt, but remember with such styling, you are bound to feel more warm than cold. It is therefore not ideal for hot days, it should be rocked during the cold nights, and rainy days.
There you have it now; how to wear that leather skirt in Uganda, and still come off feeling awesome, and comfortable at all times. Go ahead and try it.
