Leather in the Fields

Leather for winter is like being offered free money: always welcome. And especially this year with a massive revival of the silver-studded biker jackets from a couple of years ago and the clunky leather boots, leather (real or fake) is always on trend for winter one way or another. However I chose to downgrade the edgy, lethal look black leather usually provides by pairing it up with a relatively dainty dress that is often too delicate in appearance to wear on its own. Incorporating my vintage leather jacket balances out the wildly feminine look and also makes the dress wearable in winter, which is a bonus.

Put a Sequin on It

Or a few, because there is no denying that sequins are the greatest things since melted cheese. They’re  shiny, outrageous and bold, so of course I wanted to own a sequin covered something. To join in on the sequin spirit, I purchased a green sequined asos skirt. Sequins can be tricky because they’re not appropriate for all occasions, but they absolutely have their place at parties, formal events and at the more ‘special’ outings. I most recently wore my skirt to a Lady Gaga concert. It fit the Gaga criteria and you can never not have a great time in a sequined skirt.
