Leather vs Patent


This post goes out with an apology to our mums and a throw back to our 15 year old selves: No we aren’t wearing tights, yes its blinking’ freezing but hey we are wearing coats so thats makes it all ok. K’ mum?! 

Apart from our obvious attempt at re-living our teenage youth {pass the can of cider. Sic. Literally} with our lack of tight action in the cold weather can we please talk about our skirts. Seriously.

Always partial to getting our stems out, you know that fashion rule about legs out, chest in? Well thats our game plan here. Layer up on top and no one bats a eyelid at your uncovered pins sticking out of a leather/pleather mini.

Which team are you leather or patent?



We’ve gotta say that we are into both and would happily swap but then are used to our interchangeable wardrobes.

Note to wannabe Twinning Bloggers: pick a pal with the same dress size, makes your #ootd much easier and is kinder on the bank balance.

Anyway back to the skirts.

This real leather biker mini is an investment piece but will see you through Winter, Spring and partway through Summer too {think simple white tee and statement flat sandals} There’s something about a leather mini that exudes nonchalant cool and the fact that is one is as soft as a babies bottom sold it to us. The motocross topstitch and zip detailing is an added bonus.

Then there’s the fun factor of this wipe clean {insert sniggering face} wet look patent skirt that has us strutting around town like a Marant babe. With a nod to fashion’s cyclical gothic A/W trends but also the shine that sequins have without the showiness there’s something oh so nice about patent. Dress down as we have for day or easily dress up for party season.

Win win, right?
