Hey everyone! Heres the third 'Twist on the trend' to feature on our blog, this week we chose to style the A/W 2012 trend of leather, something which I previously would have been too scared to try!
Leather is huge for autumn, with everything leather from skirts to jackets popping up on the highstreet. It was a great trend to style, have a look at how the other girls styled it over on their blogs! Definitely worth a read :)
More on how we styled the trend:
Jess is wearing: Top- New Look, Leggings- H&M, Boots- Primark, Jacket- F&F
Paloma is wearing: Shirt (worn underneath)- H&M, Jumper- Mercer and Madison, Leggings- H&M, Chelsea Boots- Primark
Neither me or Jess have really attempted the leather trend before now, so were really excited to try and have a go at styling it!
Jess went for a monochrome, teaming her bold print top with boots and a leather jacket, creating a great autumn look.
I wore my leather-esque leggings and new purchase chelsea boots(I have been looking for a pair for ages!) with a collar and box jumper to give the look a more casual feel :)
How has eveyones week been? No Great British bake-off has finished- what do I do with myself on tuesday evenings now?! I think this may call for some therapy baking!
I also got the cutest little hamster last week, she is called Ayla, after one of my favourite songs by the Maccabees :)
