BLACK COATED JONI SKINNY JEANS (NOW ON SALE!) LEOPARD PRINT POINTED SHOES: TOPSHOP / *ALLSAINTS LEATHER JACKET (NOW ON SALE!): c/o JOHN LEWIS / HIGH NECK BELL SLEEVE TOP: ZARA / NAVY BAG: MICHAEL KORS
It seems that recently I've been reaching for all black ensembles more and more. You just can't go wrong with all black no matter what the occasion and I especially love to spice things up with a print thrown in there, as I've done here with the beautiful leopard print shoes. Santa brought me these for Christmas and I'm absolutely in love with them. They've got such a biker chic vibe despite being a feminine style shoe and they instantly add a bit of "bad ass" to any look, especially when teamed with the leather jacket and coated leather look jeans. Too much? Of course but that's why I love this look!
The bell sleeve is something I've loved this season too and this top from Zara is a relatively recent buy if you're looking for something to add to your basics collection. I'm going to Amsterdam in a few weeks with my friend Jess so I think this will definitely be coming with me in the suitcase, even if I will be freezing my little bum off!
The coated jeans are the Joni style from Topshop that us fashion bloggers are well acquainted with. I had my eye on the velvet ones but sadly they were out of stock in my size so I settled with the coated ones which I've actually grown to love. They're a bit of a subtle twist on the classic black skinny jean and are perfect for this time of year and are so easy to wear. I will say though that they are very, very small fitting so I'd recommend getting the size up! This pair were the size up from what I normally get and they're still very snug so if you want to be able to breathe I'd go up a size.
By the way, these Joni jeans and the AllSaints leather jacket have both gone into the sale!! The Joni jeans have gone down to £25 and the jacket has a whopping £100 off so if you're looking to invest now is the time to do so!
