Leather & Fur

Maybe I’ve been watching a bit too much Game of Thrones, but this winter all I want to do is layer up with tactile leather and fur pieces.

If – like me – you prefer the faux variety, then have a butchers (of the vegetarian kind) at today’s outfit.

I featured this faux leather Topshop skirt (£38) a little while ago and have barely taken it off since. It just works with everything. If you haven’t got yours yet, then make sure you do before it sells out. You will suddenly find yourself wearing so many of the tops/ jackets/ shoes in your wardrobe that you never had anything to wear with. 

I actually picked up the fluffy, Angora-style gilet when I was on a Christmas shopping trip to France with the girls in December. It’s from a shop called Jennyfer and is currently less than 20 euros.

There are loads on the highstreet right now; try Zara’s (£25.99) for a classic, long-line piece. Belt it in at the waist and keep things fairly slim-fit on the bottom half to retain a bit of shape. Gilets of any kind are great for us tall women because we’ve got the length to balance out the extra bulk, and they add a bit of interest to a willowy silhouette.

The burgundy knit is from Ark, and the necklace and blouse are oldies from H&M.

Bit of reader style coming up for you shortly. If you want to share any of your outfit photos, then send an email to 

Anyone else addicted to Game of Thrones? No spoilers please! I’ve still got two episodes left of my Season 1 box-set. Not seen it? Get involved… it’s ludicrously watchable, and you may find yourself falling for the charms of a dwarf.

Yes, really.
