Sense of Style - Leah Alexander

The great thing about fashion is that everyone has their own individual sense of style and should be free to express themselves through what they wear. You may only like some seasonal trends (I didn’t fancy jumping on the kimono band wagon for example; I loved them, but they’re just not me) but that doesn’t mean you can tailor things to fit your own style. My favourite thing about fashion is how personal you can make it. You can completely reinvent yourself and feel more like you than ever.

I was a winter baby and I personally prefer winter fashion to summer trends, even though this pretty much makes me the only person who’s excited about it getting colder. It’s the layering and the textures that I love! There’s always seems to be a little bit less choice of that in the summer…

So, this is my latest purchase for Autumn and I am absolutely in love with it!
Large Check Tube Trouser

Large Check Tube Trouser - £25.00 at Miss Selfridge (Don’t forget to flash your student ID card and you’ll save yourself 15% off at the till.)

I’ll wear these with knee high black boots, a black slogan tee and a biker jacket. For a slightly-less-edgy look, I’d go for a plain black top and a sharp blazer. With something this patterned, you need to go fairly plain with your tops. If it’s a bit cold, you can throw on a scarf or a snuggly poncho instead. For something a little more glamourous, I’d accessorize this look with some chunky jewellery, a fedora hat and some red lippy.

As such a statement piece, I felt this was a really good bargain. And I also love how something like this can completely change up your look. For me, if I’m shopping/lunching with the girls in the day and then heading out to a concert that evening, an outfit built around these little beauties will see me straight through.

(PS: They have an elasticated waist so they are super comfortable, meaning you can definitely share that dessert with your friend and not feel even a tiny bit guilty.)
