Monochrome 🖤⚪️🖤

Fashion

It’s leather trouser season again and I couldn’t be happier about it; they’re my favourite A/W staple piece as they are so versatile and can dress up any day-time outfit. For today’s get-up, I’ve combined coated, leather look jeans with a white blazer and plain black tee for a simple yet stylish monochromatic combo. I can’t wait to put more outfits together with these jeans during the colder months, especially with jumpers and more blazers. Leather seems to come back every A/W so I’d definitely recommend investing in a pair of faux leather- look trousers to keep up to date with the trend.

How I Style: Checked Skirt

Fashion

So, this is my first fashion post! I thought I’d start with this outfit; it’s rather autumnal and wintery and can be worn during the day or to casual evening events (I wore this outfit to the cinema with friends).

I work literally a few shops away from a Peacocks store and thought I’d pop in there on my lunch break a couple of weeks ago and have a look. I was so impressed! They have such great range of A/W clothing in there at the moment! I saw the skirt and instantly fell in love! I’ve wanted a checked skirt for a while now as I know that checked prints are in this season but I’ve been hesitant to buy one as I’ve wanted to make sure the material was of good quality. I’ve put a few different checked print skirts in my basket on boohoo.com many times but as much as I love their site, I find some of their skirts can have poor quality, made with a thin material. This skirt from Peacocks feels lovely and soft and is a thick material, making it warmer and more comfortable on my body. It almost feels woolly!

The turtleneck top I’m wearing is very comfortable and feels lightweight – the only negative with this top is that it is quite see-through but I’m sure it would be fine if worn with a nude coloured bra. The fit is great and as the top is a cream colour, it means it can easily be styled with many outfits choices.

This coat is one of my favs! It’s so warm and cosy and looks very stylish. I can wear it with most outfits and I just love the camel brown colour. I bought this coat a few years ago and it’s lasted so well considering how much I wear it.

These block heeled patent shoes are boot-i-ful! (See what I did there). The shine gives them a luxe look and helps make any outfit appear more trendy.
