Purchase of the day: Bargain skinny jeans

As soon as I saw online that Warehouse was having a sale, I just couldn’t resist darting to the store in my lunch break to have a quick nose around…and what do you think happened? Well I was trying on all sorts of items in their amazing end of winter season sale.

I knew I couldn’t spoil myself too hard but I thought a new pair of ripped skinny jeans can be a one off cheeky treat…I was ill at start of this week after all! I told myself I deserved it as the cashier scanned them through the till. 🙂

#FridayFavourites: Tactile textures

Whenever I’m shopping I can’t help but touch and stroke bags and fabrics that look like they have a unique texture and for this Spring/Summer season shops are full of them.

Tactile textures like leather, creamy suede, tassels and fringing have the ability transform your look from biker gal, to hippy chick right through to rocking up at a Great Gatsby party! They are a great asset to any fashionista’s wardrobe.

Tassles V Fringing

Fringe has always been one of the most steady and never changing fashion trends of almost any season, always coming up with some new interpretations and design combinations- some made with interesting textures like suede or leather on shoes tops and bags! Fringe detailing is even more powerful this season- bringing a boho/wild west style to any outfit.

Apart from the season’s hottest trend of using fringe details, flirty and playful tassels also add fab detailing to spice up and glam up even the simplest pieces. So if it’s not fringe, then it’s tassels, and you are going to see a lot of creative interpretations of the tassel trend this Spring- as you have on the Spring/Summer 2015 catwalks!

Leather

Leather is amazing- It can be worn as just a small accent to make any off-duty minimalist outfits look spectacular, or be the centerpiece fabric to create a statement-outfit.

The tactile fabric has been spotted in the major fashion capitals during the recent fashion weeks too- so get some of it in your wardrobe for this Spring/Summer 2015! The classy trend- sold both in the traditional shades and bright hues for attracting extra attention- is a must-have for the fans of the luxury and the classy style.

My favourite faux leather picks are:

Leather pocket A Line skirt- Warehouse £65

Playful square neck shift dress- Missguided £25

Sagittarius platform shoes- Topshop £58

Compete with Kim and Rita with your own take on pink latex with this PU salmon mini dress from Missguided at £35. Who wears the look best now?

Forever Unique Nell faux trousers in red- Van Mildert £35

Mint velvet bluebell faux biker jacket- House of Frazer £129

Rose gold metallic leather skirt- River Island £12

Go for a bold statement outfit by mixing the leather and tassel trends together. I love this faux leather tassel waterfall jacket from Missguided at £40. Such a bargain!

Suede

Pieces with suede textures are by far one of the trendiest and catchiest looks this season. Whether the tactile fabric is on outerwear like biker jackets and tailored coats, or basic garments like mini skirts and shoes, it creates a chic statement look.

In the shops there are lots of subtle suede garments in brown shades and creamy pastel colours- perfect for this time of year, while bright red and orange tones are also on offer to create bold statement looks.

Get some suede in your wardrobe with some inspiration from my favourite finds:
