Outfit post-Mixing browns and black, faux fur, leather and denim

Hi everyone! I thrifted this brown faux fur gilet in January, it is by Dorothy Perkins and I got it from the PDSA charity shop for £4.99. It's a perfect layering piece to wear over a top or a jacket which is how I wore it over the weekend, indoors and out. I have really liked wearing faux fur gilets over leather jackets this winter season as key layering pieces, not only does this work the leather sleeve trend but it's an ideal way to keep cosier too.
I am wearing a thrifted vintage Marks & Spencer gold chain and tassel print top, my Gap Always Skinny jeans and Marks & Spencer biker style black leather ankle boots that I also bought in January:



I am really pleased that true blue jeans are back in style, as much as I love coloured denim I do enjoy wearing different washes of blue jeans as for me they are so much more versatile and feel like I'm finally seeing the back of winter after wearing black jeans virtually most of this season!


I am also wearing my best ever Primark item which is my black leather biker jacket-I thrifted this three years ago for only £8.95 from my local Sue Ryder charity shop and for cost per wear it's been worth it's weight in gold, I enjoy wearing it every season either by itself or as I've just said, layered under a faux fur gilet.

I am linking this post to the lovely Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday.

Wishing you all a very good week ahead and how good it feels to know Spring is only round the corner!

Great gilet, i'm almost hoping the colder weather stays a bit longer so you get to wear it more! x

Love the mix of brown and black! I like the idea of layering the fur over the jacket. It's not something I would have thought of, so thanks for the inspiration!

Much better with the blue than more black here! I love blue and brown together ... such an easy-elegant look with all the textures!

I've been wearing stuff over my leather jacket too - mainly cos it's been so damn cold, but good to know I've been on trend! I'm liking the biker look a lot at the moment - I've been watching Sons of Anarchy and I think it's influenced me!
