Sporty Stripes

What I'm Wearing:

Leather Jacket - Y.A.S (similar) / Top - Topshop / Trousers - Topshop / Heels - River Island* / Stole - Topshop (similar) / 

The thing that attracted me to these trousers had to be the stripe detailing down the side. Admitedly, I am not generally a huge fan of the sports luxe trend but these trousers may have converted me. The stripe adds a touch of character this outfit needs and has a Gucci-esque vibe. Who wouldn't love that at a fraction of the price?! Worn here with mules for a dressed up look, I can imagine these trousers to look equally as good with a pair of Adidas Gazelles for those days when all you want is comfort. Are any of you a fan of the sports luxe trend? A pair of trousers like these would be a great way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe with minimal effort. I am off to Bali today for a two week holiday. For holiday/fashion updates you can follow me on Instagram @gemmatalbot

LFW AW15 // Day 2

What I'm Wearing:

Coat - River Island* / Top - Miss Selfridge* / Skirt - Miss Selfridge* (similar) / Boots - Asos / Bag - Whistles (similar) / 

Say hello to this suede skirt of dreams, courtesy of Miss Selfridge. In the 'it' colour of the season how could I possibly resist this camel suede dream?! Worn here for Day 2 of London Fashion Week, I kept the rest of my outfit rather minimal sticking to a neutral colour palette. I have to say camel and khaki are one of my favourite colour combinations. As the weather is still cold I definitely felt it was appropriate to layer up in my favorite River Island faux fur coat, giving this outfit a bit of a 70's vibe. I cannot wait to pair this skirt with denim and crochet come summer and dare I say with no tights (shock horror). I would love to know your thoughts on this outfit and whether any of you will be adding a statement suede skirt to your wardrobe for summer?!

LFW AW15 // Day 1

What I'm Wearing:

Cape - Lavish Alice* / Shorts - Lavish Alice* / Polo Neck - Topshop / Boots - Stuart Weitzman (similar) / Clutch - Balenciaga (similar) / 

As you all know, I am a huge fan of the co-ord. Lavish Alice have taken things up a gear with this matching cape and shorts number. Monochrome is such a timeless combination and here the stripes really do pop, making this a truly striking set. I have to give credit where credit is due and say that their Spring/Summer collection is absolutely gorgeous. I am particularly loving the earthy tones which is definitely a colour palette I expect to indulge come summer. As there is definitely still a chill in the air, I layered this outfit with a polo neck (shock horror) and thick black tights. Paired with these amazing Stuart Weitzman boots I was ready for the madness of London Fashion Week on the cobbles of Somerset House. I will be taking over the Miss Selfridge Instagram account tomorrow for LFW, so if you're around don't be shy! It would be lovely to meet you.

The Cape

What I'm Wearing:

Cape - Lavish Alice* / Polo Neck - Uniqlo (similar) / Jeans - Topshop / Heels - River Island (similar) / Bag - Marc B* / Rings - Astrid & Miyu

Admittedly, the cape isn't for everyone. For some, it's something that looks ready for take off.  It's certainly a bold piece that is a statement in it's own right but I am after all one for embracing new trends. What I particularly love about this Lavish Alice cape is the striking print. To let the cape do the talking, I kept the rest of my outfit quite minimal, sticking to my trustee polo neck and black skinny jean combo. I added a pop of colour in the form of this Marc B bag and think this is just what this outfit needed. Equally a pop of cobalt blue would also go down a treat and is the contrast this monochrome ensemble needs. What are your thoughts on the cape? Is it a tailored piece that will be making its way into your wardrobe soon? I would love to know your thoughts on this outfit.
