Hell for Leather

Jumper: New Look
Shirt: New Look
Trousers: Boohoo
Trainers: Matalan*
Necklace and Bracelet Set: Lovett & Co.*
Ring: Stolen from my sister

If you happened to come across my tweet earlier about the perils of wearing leather trousers, here is the reason. Whilst sometimes I'll take outfit photos and have trouble whittling them down to a few because I like loads of them, other times I'll discard about 90% of them straightaway because I just think I look godawful in them. This was one of the latter times - do my thighs look too big? are they creasing too much? can you see my pants?! My mum didn't immediately shriek with horror upon seeing my outfit though so I think I might be magnifying the perceived flaws a little bit...what do you think? 

The reason I bought these trousers is because I think that leather is the perfect autumn/winter material, and in trouser or legging form they make a brilliant alternative to skinny jeans. Boohoo have got a whole host of different styles and prices on the website at the moment so I'd definitely recommend you checking them out if you want to give the Sandy from Grease look a whirl. 

I decided to go for a simple jumper and shirt combination on the top half because I already had the perfect accessories in mind, this beautiful necklace and bracelet combination from Lovett & Co. a little shop selling gorgeous pieces of vintage inspired jewellery. I'm wearing the Daisy Diamante set, clusters of pearls and crystal which offer a really girly way of wearing statement jewellery.

I thought the ultra feminine style would merge perfectly with the tough leather and studded hi-top combination but I can also see myself wearing it with a lovely floaty cream dress over Christmas...now thats what I call multi-tasking jewellery!
