Leather Me Up :: Leather Jacket & Skirt with Stripe TurtleneckHi everyone.
Being just about a week away from Christmas, my schedule has just gotten sooo busy with last minute shopping, school plays to attend, class parties to prepare food for etc... Not to mention, trying to keep warm whilst the weather gets cooler.
I have always felt that a Leather Biker/Motorcycle Jacket as some would call them, is a basic essential item one should have in the wardrobe for the winter season. A classic piece to own, I love trending this jacket ( and I am sure you will see a couple of outfit posts with this jacket during the winter season) for it's versatility, comfort and style.
If you haven't noticed, I do love same colour combinations of classic pieces for the different seasons in my fav Black and Stripes Combo. And always working on accenting with a pop of colour. So here a nice richer Burgundy/ Maroon coloured bag ( instead of bright red in Summer), which can double up as a clutch, adds the perfect touch to complete the look.
Since the leather skirt was pleated, it had a flirty girly edge to it so why not have some fun during the shoot! Here's a candid shot for you!
Love the detailing of studs on the jacket especially for this year since many designers have caught on to the stud craze for their luxury goods e.g Valentino, Marc Jacobs etc. Also being a round collared jacket unlike most traditional high collared Biker Jackets, this style would give one more room to play with accessories or high collared inner piece necklines.
Kept my accessories simple with just a gold watch and a simple gold bangle. However since the outfit was in full leather, why not go all out with leather hi cut boots as well!
Am working now hard on editing my next video to be released before Christmas on basic Winter Items you should have in your wardrobe. So do stay tune and watch this space next.
