Today I'm Wearing: Pretty In Pleather

Tuesday, 19 March 2013

Hey everyone!

One of my current obsessions in the fashion world at the moment is the leather trend - or, in my case, pleather! I already have this material in leggings, but a month or two ago I bought this skirt online for a gig and I love it.
My outfit on the night of the gig - wearing the pleather skirt paired with a studded crop top!
The outfit in today's post, however, is one I wore to college last week, and instead of the crop top, I tucked one of my peplum tops into the skirt - at first, it was just to see whether I could get away with it, but I actually really liked how it all looked together, so here it is! 

What I really like about the skirt is that it also has spikes on the waistline - it really adds to the whole leathery, edgy look, and I think it's always the little details that make the biggest impact! The skirt is also elasticated at the back, so it's stretchy and pretty comfortable :-)

Spikes, studs - whatever you wanna call them!
Now, for my top, this is technically a peplum - I wanted to experiment and see whether I could disguise the little peplum design at the bottom by tucking it into the skirt, and, well, I think it worked! The top is gorgeous though, and the gold mesh detailing at the top is one of the things I love about it - black and gold is always a stunning colour combo!

And the finishing piece so I don't freeze to death - my trusty black/stud cardigan (to match the skirt and rock studs, of course!)

Black/Gold Peplum Top £10.00 Outfit - Bought with the cardigan in the Christmas sales, and I actually bought a size 14 in this by mistake, but it still fits okay (I'm usually a size 10!)

And lastly, my pretty studded loafer shoes my sister gave to me as they didn't fit her - so comfy and cute!

  4. Kerry-

    Aww thanks lovely! Ah really? That's such a shame! They do bother my feet a little bit when I've walked in them for a while but I do wear insoles in them since they're a size 6 - think it helps a bit haha!

    Thanks for commenting again :-)

  5. Hi Emily!
    I love that skirt!! I'm really in to mixing textures on outfits right now and a pleather skirt is awesome for that! :)


    1. Hey Anna!

      Thank you so much! Mixing textures sounds like a great idea - I've read everywhere that mixing patterns and prints is really in right now too. But I agree - pleather skirts are great for loads of things!

      Thanks for commenting and have a fab day!
