Not Your Typical Leather Trousers

Thursday, 3 April 2014



Today's outfit is a dressed up look, I figured it would be best to post it on Thursday for any of you that are going out this weekend and are in need of outfit inspiration! This is the perfect look for an evening out. My look is a predominantly black look but I try to use the spring to add more colour into my wardrobe and I think the trousers do just that! Let's talk clothes...

I fell in love with these trousers as soon as I saw them, they have a leather look finish but are a mauve colour which I think is a great alternative from black for spring! Although that didn't stop me making the rest of my look black haha. I wore a wrap around blouse which falls so delicately, it's very flattering, perfect for a night out.

I wore a standard black leather jacket (no surprises there) with a faux fur shawl over the collar for a more "going out" effect, and it's always good to have a little extra for the way home when it gets a bit chilly! I think I always talk about the weather in my posts haha! Living in London it's imperative to plan your outfit with the weather in mind otherwise you risk being sick all year round - it's so unpredictable! 

I wore a pair of black court heels and a black clutch with gold detailing to complete the look, a clutch and heels smarten up any look in my opinion - even when you're in jeans. Accessories wise I stuck to gold this time to match my clutch - I've said before I'm not a fan of mixing gold and silver when it comes to accessories, although I do think it may change sooner or later.

    1. Haha thanks! I thought I'd go for something a little different as most of my looks are quite casual. I'm glad you liked it - I will definitely do more of these chic looks :P I could talk about the weather for ages; it's just such a mess everywhere! X

    1. I think it's the easiest look for a night out - it's a simple blouse and trousers but the colours really push it towards being perfect for a night out! X
