Trend Alert: Loving Leather


One of the best things about a new season is the exciting changes we can make to our tired wardrobes. The change of colours, the shapes, silheoutes, lengths, overalls, footwear, the list is endless! Apart from the occasional SAD syndrome, I must say I surely do love winter, the looks that can be created and the endless outfits that can be switched up by a simple change of footwear or blouse, the anticipation gives me such a buzz every time I think about it; its the power of fashion I guess, what more can I say!
Okay so enough of the chit chat lets get straight to it; Trend alert number one is the cold, Gothic Leather.
Looking forward to playing around with this invigorating texture, the shapes and the clean structure that is apparent on the catwalk is definitely a statement maker. I love how Valentino has captured the simplicity of this trend, yet he has brought forward strength in each look which I think is amazing. The visual impact is stunning and also very complementary to the trend, this has not only been portrayed by Valentino but other designers such as Versace and Dior.

Get The Look
So here is a fantastic way to get this trend going. A sexy yet sophisticated look that can be created by pieces from high street stores. inspired by one of my favourite Valentino looks on the catwalk, Ive put together this structured, cut out detail shirt (£25.00) and a figure hugging pencil skirt (£22.00), bound to compliment in all the right places. The bold Mac Rebel lipstick  (14.50) is a great addition, a pop of colour just to break up the black and white which definitely flatters this outfit. Not forgetting this simple zara wedge which adds   to its simplicity.                
Celeb Spotted
We can't deny that we love to see the celebs rocking the newest trends so here are few ladies doing it very well! Jenifer Aniston wearing those fabulous trousers very simply paired with a black top. Gwen Stefani rocking a peplum leather, fantastic; two trends rolled up in one. Her pop of lip colour is the icing on the cake! We take our hats off to those who can pull off new trends, well done ladies.
