Pleather, Sweat and Shame

If the below appeals to you, chances are it’s already in your wardrobe.

Leatherette Mini Skirt: $15.80

Sure, it used to be the linchpin of your Pocahontas  costume from 2002. Maybe your threw it on underneath a long, cream sweater to run errands on a laundry day.

Maybe you thought it looked decent and, hell, you were just going to the news stand and Trader Joe’s for some  Reduced Guilt potato chips. Who’s going to notice your bottom came wrapped in a plastic bag with the words, “Leg Avenue” written on it? No harm done. It’s only once.

But now … now this pliable abomination has wriggled its way into your everyday wardrobe. You have succumbed to the slippery slope.


Wearing shit like this is what gets you on bad fashion reality shows. Unless you want Stacy and Clinton cackling their way through your closet on national television, STAY AWAY.

Forever 21, WTF?

    OMG I saw this at my local store and I was like ” they are selling hooker skirts now” not to mention any “plether” smells like fish there.

  5. As much as I like the animal-friendliness of the idea, pleather mini skirts will never not be tacky. Ever. And pairing it with the stupid fringy shirt does not help.

    What, no mention of the utter bastardization that is the word “leatherette?”

  7. I saw that at F21 the other day… it was paired with a flowery belly shirt and a fringed vest, you know, for the 70’s hooker in all of us.
