Leather and Sequins.

Leather and sequins are two major trends right now and you can't take step into any shop without seeing something with leather sleeves or adorned in sequins. Some trends I'm not a fan of but these are two I will happily jump right into. I adore all things sparkly, my mum often calls me a magpie and you may of seen my recent post on the SammyDress - Zara copy coat with the leather sleeves. Here's how I would wear both trends: 
| 1 Leather Sleeve Coat - Sammy Dress | 2 Sequin 2 in 1 Dress - Next | 3 Spike Earrings - Asos |
| 4 Chelsea Boot - Asos | 5 Black Tights | 6 Maroon Tights - H&M |
  | 7 Lace Collar Top - NewLook | 8 Skull Shoes - Primark | 9 Pleather Skirt - NewLook |
| 10 Maroon Bag - Marc B | 11 Spike Rings - Topshop |
Both these outfits I would wear casually. The sequin dress is versatile enough that you can dress it up or dress it down, the Chelsea boots give it a casual look so just add some heels and there's your night look. I love pleather skirts and although I don't own one yet its high up on my wish list! I think it would make a really cute day look for going shopping or out with friends. Add a studded leather jacket for a bit more of a grunge vibe and you're set. You know my obsession with all things skulls and these primark shoes are no exception, they're velvet which I think is a really nice trend to mix with the leather. Then there is the Marc B maroon bag, simple and gorgeous will add a bit of colour to your outfit.
 
 | 1 Studded Jacket - River Island  | 2 Gray Skater Skirt - NewLook |3 Sequin Flats - Madden Girl | 4 Sequin Biker Jacket - Oasis | 5 Sequin Clutch - Ark | 6 Studded Flats - SammyDress | 7 Sequin Top - Tesco | 8 Jeans - Next | 9 Rider Boots - Next |

With sequins I tried to find ways to dress it down to make it more wearable for the day time. There's nothing wrong with injecting a little sparkle into your day to day life. As I mentioned before, I'm really into skater skirts at the moment as I feel they're really flattering to most body shapes, skimming the hips and shrinking the waist. Paired with some sequin flats and a studded leather jacket for a cute day look. Then to go extra casual the jumper from tesco clothing is perfect for running errands or a trip to the park. The riding boots make it all extra cosy, add a knitted scarf and parka jacket to keep you warm. The last one is more of a meal out type outfit. Sequin sleeved biker jacket and statement studded shoes. Add a sequin clutch for even more sparkle.
