I've been looking for the perfect pair of real leather trousers for a while now and i've not found them easy to find.

I've never owned a pair of real leather trousers before but have a pair of fake leather ones which i love, i just love my real leather ones more! Saying that there are some really good fake leather trousers out there, that are a fraction of the price and that do exactly the same thing so if you are thinking its a look that you'd like to try but aren't ready/able/want to fork out loads of cash on some then you have options. Here are some fake versions that i've spotted:

My fake leather ones are the Vero Moda one listed above.

Vero Moda £35 / River Island £40 / TOPSHOP £18 / Zara £25.99

Real leather trousers are an investment which is another word for expensive so it's very important to get some you love. I went for leather leggings (which not very long ago i would have thought was the most ridiculous thing ever) but they are great as they mould to your shape, mine are from Baujken.

Here are some real ones:

Reiss £595 /  Tory Burch £342 (was £760) / Baukjen £349 / H&M £199.99


There are loads of cool black leather (and leather look) backpacks around at the moment.  They are perfect for work and play and are so comfortable and easy to wear.  

ASOS £55 / WHISTLES £295 / JOHN LEWIS £39 / JIGSAW £169


Have you ever considered wearing a leather skirt? If you haven't you should because leather skirts are cool - they make a statement without being to over the top, they exude confidence and are very versatile.

I have recently purchased my second leather skirt - the first one i got from ebay, it was a TOPSHOP one that cost me £10. I decided that i'd buy a secondhand one to see if i liked it and because i couldn't afford to buy a new one at the time.  Anyway i loved it, wore it loads all year around, to work, to parties, to dinners and so i decided to invest in another new one and i love it. A good quality leather skirt in a classic shape is something that you'll have in your wardrobe forever, its an investment/staple.

TOPSHOP (same as mine) £130 / M&S £149 / LINDEX £149 / H&M £79.99/  ASOS CURVE £80


Black see through shirts and tops are really useful - which is I think why i have a few of them.  They are great worn smartly, to work or dressed down.  

I've been wearing this H&M a fair bit lately, basically because it goes with everything.  I usually wear a thick strapped black vest top under them, but white or brighter ones would also work.  

Here are a few others i've got my eye on:

Zara £29.99 / Topshop £38 / & Other Stories £25 / Zara £25.99
