Leather Accents

Knit: local boutique 
Leather skirt: local boutique
Shoes: MissGuided

I bought these two items recently from the same store! :) With the monochrome trend sweeping over the fashion world recently I've been really loving black and white, and all the shades of grey in between!

Stripping an outfit of colour provides the perfect opportunity to draw focus on interesting textures and stark contrasts. The knit already was a statement piece, with contrasting black and white yarn, and patches of leather at the shoulders and cuffs. The leather skirt itself also has a subtle intersecting design on the front! :)

I also wanted to finish off the minimalistic vibe with my new MissGuided thin strappy heels! The silver metallic heel adds an extra modern touch.

I'm so geared up to wear more monochromatic clothing with leather accents. They can be added in unconventional spots on a garment, to make even more of an impact! I found these leather collars from ASOS, leather sleeves from Boutique to You, and even studded leather cuffs from ASOS

  2. I saw so much leather accented stuff in Thailand last year! I'm regretting not buying more! Maybe I'll wear some of it now & make a post? I really love the skirt, you look so stunning.

  7. Exactly why I love monochrome looks, gives much more attention to the detail and textures in an outfit! There are so many interesting things that can be done with one color, it's crazy. Love your sandals! The chunky heel is cute. :)
