This skirt was a pain. Perfect black leather, perfectly tapered, but…..what to wear with it?

In the old days when I bought it at Pauw (again, I know, it is ridiculous how much I bought there), I combined it with a  cream blouse which I have shown before. Or with a red short jacket which you will see later in time.
Problem with both items is that they are so classic. Although I don’t mind classic, I want a modern twist.
So I was trying and trying to see what I could wear with the skirt to update it. Failed several times as you could see in big black sweater failures.

My husband did not like the combinations I showed him very much. Or just a bit. Then he said: “How about your Japanese kimono?”

I know that kimonos are HOT, very trendy and this time I was ahead of things. I have at least 4 kimono-type tops. And one real silk Japanese kimono from 1930. Black and white, which is also HOT. A vintage find in Antwerp last summer and a present from my husband (yes… again. The man loves me.)

What do you think of it? Be honest please. Very good? Or very bad?
