Leather fix

When it comes to leather... I find people seem to be a bit scared of it. Yes it can be riskaaay, but played right, leather can the most seductive, sexy stylish fabric going. This season, leather will play a BIG part in the trends, whether worn subtly in the day or upping the anti at night. 

I thought I would have a quick shifty round the high street to give you the best leather buys for AW13!

Leather Look Dungarees

Leather look dungarees are perfect to wear in the day with a patterned shirt and heels for work or slouchy tee and trainers. Casual, but stylish.

Anyone who is anyone has a leather jacket, but this years tweeks to the classic jacket is larger spikier collars, less studs and a side zip, contributing to a simple but true biker look.

Cut Out Boots

Cut out Boots
Leather boots NEVER go out of fashion... they're classic and let's be honest last forever. I wear mine to death. But this year boots have boots have took an alternative twist. They look a bit like old fashioned school shoes, but with more substance to them. I find them quite feminine, which is a nice change to the heavy studded biker boots from last season. Topshop have the best cutout boots this season, with the best cut prices.

Leather jeans/ jeggings

That's right, they're back. Whether you prefer a structured pair of skinnys or jeggings/ leggings that have a bit more stretch, they're here to stay this season. Pair them with some tartan or an oversized jumper and beanie for a slouchy, cool look.

For any of you who have read my other blogs, you will know I have used this dress before as an example. But I just LOVE it. It's so beautifully elegant with a twist of vampness and sexability to it. I know it's a little steep, but it's definitely worth it.

Now I know it's tempting if you've got a hot bod to flaunt all... but trust me this isn't how to nail this trend. In this case more IS less.

These ladies might be HOT but it is waaaaaay too much and sending out the wrong message. It's a NO NO!
