It’s far too cold over here in the UK for my harem pants these days. I’m totally over wearing jeans, and with skirts not really being my thing…. you get my predicament….I was scouring online for some winter wardrobe inspiration when I came across some faux leather trousers in Zara. Not really something I’d thought of before, faux leather can be a bit hit and miss. But. In a mottled grey, with fab knee detail I thought I’d give them a whirl.
I’m embracing the wet, cold early morning school runs and layering up with my favorite chunky knits, mixing up textures.
The rare sunny wintery days, I’m ditching the chunky knitwear and teaming them with a denim shirt, kitsch Prada sunglasses with my Twenty8Twelve scarf and digging out the Mac red lippy for a more retro look.
For date night, teaming them with my Soft Gallery sweater, metallic heels and my MiuMiu clutch.
They’re surprisingly pretty practical… a little wet wipe and those sticky toddler finger marks are long gone. I’m finding them just as versatile as my trusty denims.
