The Cape coat seems to be pretty ‘hot right now!’

This one is like a white tuxedo jacket! I think they give you an extra bit of class, something eye catching…. and who can go wrong with white on black.

I’ve gone for a bit of a contrast look, business on top, party down the bottom…. leather boots above the knee and leather skirt. It’s a bit of a daring look but exude confidence and anyone can pull it off.

On above the knee boots…. do they? Don’t they? look at bit well…. street walker haha… ! NAH do it right and it’s a big thumbs up. I’d say avoid the patent shiny leather and super super high heels (pretty woman style) and you should be right. BUT there’s a never say never with anything… it’s all about what you pair it with.

NO PONIES were harmed in the making…!

My new love…. one word (or is it two) ponyhair…. yep black slip on leather heels with black ponyhair! Strange I know but luxury in shoes at its best!

And the best thing about leather in a shoe… it’s soft and wearing them out is so much better on your feet.

Oh course comes new shoes…. well… you better buy a new dress to go with that! Gone are the days that navy blue and black are a big no-no…. I say go with it….embrace the dark side together.

And the good thing about this dress is…. it’s fitted but with 75% Viscose and 25% Nylon it shapes amazingly…. (no spanks needed) it’s thick, comfy and highlights the best bits (in at the waist)! And let’s be honest anything that does that is on my list of things to buy!!!! And it comes with a crop top extra bit over the top for an extra reason to love and some added texture!!

Leather with leather…..risky?

Well…. not if done right! I used to think leather on leather was just reserved for 1. The tough bikie types OR 2. Their tragically dressed bikie girlfriends….. BUT I’m a convert.

I think the key to going all leather is to not go in too hardcore….. make it more feminine with a lighter colour than just black (as done here, light pink!), or go for a more loose fit (because lets be honest the only people that look good in tight tight leather pants is models and people with stick think legs…. not me!). But tight leather pants and a loose leather top can be a winner…. just tight on tight in this case might be a bit…. I’m gearing up to go for a ride….!

And NO I’m not opposed to leather-look…. it might not have the quality as real leather but there is some good stuff out there that looks just like the real thing (NOTE: the skirt is not… the top is)

And there’s no doubt good leather pieces in your wardrobe come in handy and change a dull outfit to something with a bit of edge…. (no one ever called a leather skirt dull right??)
